Sweeping views of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge and the possibility to expand this stunning home's living space make 173 Ocean Avenue a one of a kind property. This legal two family home, currently used as a single family, spans over 4,600 square feet. Its R5 zoning permits the addition of two more stories and 10,000 additional square feet of living space.
Manhattan-style living with the privacy that Staten Island can provide, and right by the bridge that brings you there in no time at all- have your cake and eat it too in the South Beach neighborhood!
Inside this Beautiful Beachside Home
The Ocean Avenue entrance is fenced off with a gated driveway. First impressions are reminiscent of a Hamptons villa complete with paved walkway and bamboo trees. The front door is even overlooked by a mermaid design!
Standing tall at three stories, this modern home has been completely renovated inside and out. The home's first floor boasts three bedrooms, a full bath, large closets and utility room. Polished concrete floors throughout the home keep you toasty in the winter with radiant heating.
Upstairs the second level is ideal for entertaining. The staircase opens to a half bath and sitting area. Around the corner, an open concept dining area adjoins the kitchen. Ebony brown kitchen cabinets and granite counters are beautifully finished in a modern style. The wavy backsplash here seems to mimic the ocean currents outside. Gorgeous picture windows provide crystal clear views of the bay and luxurious backyard below.
And finally, the impressive master suite spans the entire top floor. With soaring cathedral ceilings, this spectacular suite features a master bath with double sinks, steam shower with soaking tub. Unwinding here is a true pleasure with sun porch/lounge and large dressing room.
Outdoors, the spacious backyard is equally modern. Fully fenced in, the deck surrounds a heated pool/spa alongside the manicured green lawn thanks to 9 zone sprinkler system. The view from here is amazing no matter which way you turn. The back of the house features an attractive brick facing, with ocean views beyond the fence on the other side.
This property offers the potential to build additional income-producing properties with R5 zoning, making it a great investment for a builder. Also of note, this shoreline property is NOT located in a flood zone and does not require flood insurance.
