Let’s clear the air: this townhouse is in Staten Island, on Van Duzer Street in Stapleton. Getting to the Staten Island Ferry necessitates a ride, or the patience to catch a 13-minute bus and then, assuming, the will to transfer to yet another form of public transportation on the other side. People do it every day. Moving on.
The townhouse at no. 537 was built in 1910 and still possesses some downright charming original details, like its wainscoting, plaster medallions, and walnut spindles on the entry staircase. With three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a petite yet workable rear patio, the house is a steal by New York City standards at $410,000. The potential here is vast, and that kitchen set with those wishbone-inspired chairs and dappled light starts to get at that.
