Welcome to a semi-regular feature, Price Points, in which we pick a relatively low asking price and a type of apartment, then scour StreetEasy (& SIBOR for today) to find the best available options around the city. Today's task: Staten Island single-family homes asking less than $500,000.
↑ This Clifton home was last renovated three years ago and comes with four bedrooms, one and a half bathrooms, and a spacious backyard, which is currently in need of some love. Now some basic facts: the home comes with stainless steel appliances, features hardwood floors, and has an attic for extra storage. It’s also relatively close to the Staten Island Ferry terminal in St. George. For all of that, it’s asking $325,000.
↑ Located in New Brighton (on Eadie Place), this lovely colonial home comes with a spacious, decked backyard that has tons of lawn furniture and a kiddie pool. Inside, the house features three bedrooms, and one bathroom. It’s done up with hardwood floors, and the kitchen is fitted with stainless steel appliances. For all that, you need to shell out $399,999.
↑ Overlooking Staten Island’s massive Latourette Park, and located just a short distance away from the Staten Island Mall, this Heartland Village home has plenty going in its favor. It comes with three bedrooms, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, bamboo floors, and an electric fireplace. What’s more it has access to communal facilities like a swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball courts, and a playground. For all of that, it wants $389,900.
↑ Looks can be deceiving, and that’s the truth for 22 Tompkins Court in New Brighton. This nearly 2,000-square-foot house dates to the 1930s but has modern interior upgrades like a new kitchen with granite countertops and a glass tile fireplace surround. The three-bedroom, three and a half bathroom house could use a little elbow grease, particularly when it comes to the gutted second bathroom and exterior. It’s on the market for $499,999.
↑ This unassuming house in Dongan Hills above Hylan is on the market for $499,999. The two-bedroom, one-bathroom house has a fully-finished basement that can double as a family room, as well as a separate two-car garage. It’s kitchen has been recently upgraded with black countertops and cabinets and a pearly backsplash.
↑ Townhouse living in Huguenot is infinitely more suburban than in other parts of the city. This Dover Green townhouse, on the market for $429,000, sits on top of a single-car garage and has three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Some updates could be used throughout, particularly in the kitchen with its yellow laminate countertops, but the townhouse’s generously-sized back patio might be enough to help woo potential buyers.
