A large and bright semi-attached colonial home just hit the market in Westerleigh, one of Staten Island’s most sought-after neighborhoods! On a quiet tree-lined street just one block from beloved Westerleigh Park, location just doesn’t get any better than this!
At almost 2,000 square feet, in addition to a cute backyard and semi-finished basement, you’ll have plenty of space to move around! Built in 1925, this well-kept property retains all the charm from generations ago with some nice updates.
From the outside the home greets you first with a quaint vinyl siding and bay window. The front yard is clean and tiny with a grassy lawn, shrubs, and tall tree facing the street. To the right is a white fence leading to the backyard’s side entrance.
The front entrance leads you directly into the living-dining room with staircase to the left. This area has shiny wood floors in an espresso color. This area is warm and homey, and also brings in plenty of sunlight thanks to two large windows! This first level also features a half bath.
Behind the living room is the eat-in kitchen with stone floor tile and backsplash. Cabinets are wood and on the traditional side and appliances are white (including dishwasher). Here, you’ll also find another bright window looking into the side yard. At the corner is a door leading into the backyard, making it easy to call the kids in for supper or to dine al fresco style!
The backyard demands very little of your time with tedious maintenance since it’s fully paved and sheltered by a durable PVC fence. Currently, the yard is set up with table and chairs and surrounded by garden boxes to bring a little greenery. It’s a great space for company!
And now on to the second and third floors! Upstairs on the second floor, you’ll find the master bedroom at the front of the home. This bedroom has beige carpeting and a closet. Facing the back of the home on this floor is the second bedroom. Also on this level is the home’s full bath with tub/shower combo.
The third floor bedroom is quite unique in that it comprises the entire floor! Partially closed in by a wooden banister, this room overlooks the staircase and the side yard as well through its window.
Lastly, this large home has the added space found in its semi-finished basement! Here, residents also have access to a laundry room and utility room. Whether you use this as a chore area, extra storage, or even an entertainment spot, lots of possibilities await down here!
