Houses like this turn-of-the-century detached Victorian don’t come along in New York City very often, and when they do, it’s often in Ditmas Park or other outer-borough neighborhoods. It’s no surprise, then, that this one is located in Staten Island’s Oakwood neighborhood, close to Great Kills Park and the waterfront.
The home itself looks like something out of a fairy tale, with all of the quintessential Queen Anne elements: wraparound front porch with columns, a decorative gable roof, and even a turret-like addition on one side of the house. It’s all very charming—and “perfect for the discerning connoisseur,” according to the brokerbabble—with original details also intact throughout the home’s (admittedly, a bit dated) interior as well.
There’s also plenty of space, with five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a small rec room in the attic, several fireplaces, and a formal living and dining room. There’s also a large backyard—with a gazebo, because of course—and parking for four. (Truly, they don’t make ‘em like this in Manhattan.) It’s going for $1.5 million.
