Welcome to this inside look of 36 Forrestal Avenue! This contemporary 3 bedroom 3 bath home is located on a very unique block in the South Shore neighborhood of Arden heights!
This is a completely renovated California-style home, making it very unique and special for the Staten Island area. Other standout features include a one-car garage, completely updated sprinkler system, and a full camera security system letting you keep watch over the entire property.
Absolutely every detail of this home has been beautified- all you have to do is move in. Now let's look inside!
First, we find ourselves in this home's living room with high-quality Pergo flooring and a bay window. There's also an electric fireplace, keeping this whole floor warm all year round. The cathedral ceilings make this area seem especially large with an open-concept to the second level.
Off to one side, there's a conveniently located half bath and a large hall closet as well as access to the one-car garage. Behind that is the dining room and kitchen.
Head past the staircase with a reclaimed wood look to find yourself in the kitchen/dining area. Here, you'll find mirror-like granite countertops, a breakfast bar, and stainless steel appliances.
The dining room across from it has a lighting fixture which is also very reminiscent of the West coast in a wood box style. The open concept of this area lends itself to an airy and carefree family lifestyle- almost like you're in San Diego!
Backyard and Basement
The backyard is equally relaxing, accessible through sliding glass doors. There's a full patio deck here with a nook that's great for al fresco dining or barbecuing. The whole patio is semi-sheltered for a more private feel away from the surrounding houses.
There's also an above ground pool which could stay or go - up to you! The owner has removed the lining for winter, but will gladly reinstall a new lining at no cost to you.
Downstairs is the fully finished basement with kitchenette and laundry area. There's also the option right at the back to connect plumbing fixtures and create a fourth bathroom. Alternatively, this area would make a great storage closet.
This area is great for hosting guests, and could also be a perfect TV room!
Upstairs Living Space
Two floors up the same central staircase that leads to the basement to access this homes top floor with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Two of these bedrooms are each a nice size for a child's room or even a study.
There's an open loft-like space on the landing which could remain as is for that wide-open feel connecting the first and second floor, or could be converted to an extra room simply by adding a few walls!
Also off of the hall is this home's main bath with tub and stand up shower. For creative storage, there is a towel closet with mirror. What you won't see here is a medicine cabinet, which has instead been placed in the master bath in order to safeguard medications from little hands.
The king-sized master bedroom ensuite has its own private three-quarter bath with both a mirrored medicine cabinet and towel cabinet as well.
Back in the bedroom is an enormous double mirrored closet to keep things tidy. But the best is perhaps yet to come- a private terrace out front gives you a panoramic view of all the gorgeous houses on this block!
There are many things to love about the South shore neighborhood of Arden heights including its good school system and easy transportation access via its proximity to Interstate 440 and the Outerbridge crossing leading to New Jersey. For public transit users, bus stops nearby include the S55, SIM4, SIM4C, and SIM8.
Forrestal Avenue is dominated by modern architecture reminiscent of California homes down the block, though most homes in this neighborhood lean toward the more traditional. Many affordable townhomes can be found here, such as those in Aspen Knolls and the award-winning development Village Greens. Most real estate here is young compared with other Staten Island communities.
