You get to have Grasmere Lake as your backyard

Ben Bay Realty Co

Staten Island may be a bit out of reach of the city’s other boroughs, but when it comes to affordability, it’s one of your best bets. In the borough’s Grasmere neighborhood, this four-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom has made it’s way to the market, asking $799,000, and if you’re looking for country home vibes without having to leave the city, this might be worth checking out.

The listing description doesn’t say much about the space, nor does it include a floorplan, but it does refer to the abode as a “lake house” with “a new three-tiered deck and dock that accommodates a watercraft,” so already things sound impressive. Its decor is slightly dated in some areas, but it’s lovely wood-beamed ceilings, stone fireplace, and other charming details are nice perks.

The first floor is comprised of a formal dining, a spacious kitchen with a breakfast nook/sunroom that overlooks the lake, and a living room with a wood-burning fireplace. There are also two bedrooms on the first floor, while the second bedroom accommodates the remaining to rooms. There is a full attic, a finished basement, and even a second sunroom on hand.

There is no shortage of outdoor space here and includes a lovely front porch, a landscaped front yard, a private deck.
