About the Property
Home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 2 living rooms, full kitchen, full dining for 6 - 10
Everything is close in Historic St. George, museums, restaurants and small grocery stores that have good selections of staples, beer and organic foods. If the desire is to explore the neighborhood and view all the historic homes and public buildings or ride over to New York City see the sights, all is quite easy even with small children. On the other side near the NYC dock is the ticket booth to the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island or the tour buses. If you want to walk around after docking you will be in the old Historic district of Manhattan and just a few short blocks from the Financial District of Wall Street.
The General Grant style house has been renovated with a new and fully equipped kitchen. For summer there is a new 18,000 BTU air conditioner and a lovely private Garden Patio with table and chairs. For winter there is a working wood burning fireplace and steam heat. Enjoy a master bedroom with lovely romantic decor and wood floors, high ceilings with ceiling fans throughout and a full bathroom with a shower/bathtub. There is a shared foyer with the owner but the unit has it's own locking front door and is totally private. No car is necessary and there is public transportation from all three airports in New York and from Newark in NJ. If a parking space is needed the street has no restrictions and is right in front of the home entrance. Wifi is included along with cable TV on a 32' flat LED screen.

Car: Not Necessary
CONVENIENT! There is no private home closer to New York City then here in Historic St. George where all transportation begins, with the 24/7 free ferry ride to lower Manhattan. Located right on the Hudson Harbor with unobstructed views of the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge and the famous New York City skyline. There are many wonderful things to experience; Staten Island Yankees baseball park, historic buildings, restaurants, the Staten Island Museum, botanical and Chinese gardens, shops, restaurants and a minor league ball park are all within walking distance. We even have our own Staten Island Shopping Mall with something for everyone. Or just walk along the Esplanade and enjoy the Harbor.
Year Purchased: 1988
About the owner: My husband Stanley and I on the Esplanade down in front of the house. The area is scenic with all of New York Harbor within view of the house. Both commercial and pleasure boats are constantly traveling back and forth to loading docks or on their way out to sea.
Why the Owner Chose St. George, Staten Island, NY, USA:
The house is quaint and inviting with great views, one can never be bored. A great plus is the close proximity of the Staten Island Ferry that runs 24/7 - 365, only a 10 minute walk, a 20 minute ride and then you are in Manhattan. Coming home it is cool in summer as the doors are wide open and you can watch the sun setting with the Statue of Liberty back lit. In winter the passenger lounges are heated and you can read, relax or compare notes on your days adventures. The house is historically significant as the first owner was the son of the preserved Stevenson's General Store in Historic Richmond Town. In 1870's coming to the North Shore was a relief with the breezes blowing off the Hudson River and so the area became a resort with homes for the very wealthy. This two family home provided a place for me to live and raise my two children. Now I rent the lower part of the house, which is a complete apartment in itself with sliding patio doors out onto a private patio and garden.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is so convenient to all public transportation. The neighborhood is safe and it is a relatively quiet one for New York City. The house is private, clean and comfortable with antiques in every room but the kitchen is updated and there are modern conveniences such as air conditioners and a dish washer so you don't need to live in the last century on your vacation.
