According to our very own Staten Island Chuck, this year there will be an early end to the arduous winter we™ve had to endure. With thoughts of spring on our mind, coupled with some good old cabin fever comes the need to head out to the great outdoors. As a Staten Islander, I can™t think of a better place to acquire some sunshine than in Rossville™s Bloomingdale Park which many of us Islanders have branded the œCentral Park of the South Shore.
This 139-acre park has been the perfect location for hiking enthusiasts, being that the majority of the park has been left natural and preserved for wildlife but yet giving way for scenic waterways, walking trails and even a bike path. Completed in 2004, 15 acres of the park was developed to include a playground with shower sprays and swings, along with a comfort station. The park also offers a baseball field, softball field, soccer field basketball courts, and even a bocce ball court.

With today™s economy the way it is, families today are often looking for ways of tightening their belts and cutting down expenses. I think that you would agree that a full family vacation is often considered a luxury today and more often than not becomes the first expense put on the chopping block.
What if I told you I could offer you a family vacation for a mere 50 dollars a month? It would probably raise an eyebrow. Even further, what if I told you that same $50 a month family vacation would last all summer long? Well then, just to prove my point let me take you for a stroll down the Village Greens located on the South Shore of Staten Island.
With the charm of the New England villages in mind, award-winning architect, Norman Jaffe™s design of Village Greens went underway in 1971. Taking the last virgin territory left in New York City, the idea was to build four individual neighborhoods whose uniqueness has never been seen in New York. The communities were built around a 10 acre private park which would include picnic areas, swimming pools, tennis courts, baseball diamonds, basketball courts, and children™s play areas but would also keep the beauty of trees, green grass and shaded walks. The construction of P.S. 4 was also included in the configuration, which now allows the children of Village Greens to conveniently walk to school without ever having to cross a busy street. The residents of the town are offered the convenience of a shopping center, also adjacent to Village Greens. On the recreation side, this home sits just down the road from the South Shore Golf Course and there are boating facilities and beaches just minutes away as well.
Remember the word œstay-cation I coined a few months back? Living within the unique community of the Village Greens epitomizes this phrase. Summers in the Village Greens are kicked off during Memorial Day weekend with their yearly Village Green Day, which is a day filled with rides, cotton candy, snow-cones and even a petting zoo, just to name a few of the day™s activities. The summer continues with lots of family activities such as Bingo nights, late night swims and movie night, even kids™ pool parties complete with a DJ. Moms and Dads even get some time of their own with a once a month adult pool party night. The community currently has swim teams and diving teams that compete and have won awards against other teams across the island. This year the community is looking forward to adding basketball and handball tournaments to their list of things to do that can be found in the Village Green™s news magazine printed every other month. As if all of these activities weren™t enough, the rest of your summer days can be spent having picnics or being lazy around the community pool which mind you also has its own concession stand that will flip the burgers for you.
Doesn™t this sound like the perfect family-friendly place to live? Your next question might be, how do I get my hands on a house in this community? Well lucky for you that you™re reading this posting, because our latest listing at 101 Hampton Green is located right there inside of the wonderful, award-winning Village Greens. This 4 bedroom, 1.5 bath, one family home boasts 1,562 square feet of living space and 1,760 square feet of property. With an open and airy layout, the first floor hosts the attached garage, a half bath with Laundry space, galley kitchen, formal dining room and living room. The living room in this home is oversized to say the least and has a wall of windows and glass sliding doors making it a sunny and welcoming space. The glass sliders lead to a low maintenance backyard with PVC fencing, a private above-ground pool and even an additional entrance to Nedra Lane where there is plenty of extra parking for any of your guests.
The second floor hosts four nice-sized bedrooms and a full bath that can also be accessed from the master bedroom. There is never a shortage of closet space in this home, with large closets in the hall and closets in every bedroom, including a walk-in closet in not only the master bedroom but also in one of the other bedrooms as well. Big house right? We™re not done yet. Let me take you up to the third floor where there is a fully finished loft space with two skylights and is perfect for a family room or playroom for the kids. Priced at $389,000 this home has had upgrades in the last 6 years which include a furnace, new kitchen, crown molding, and surround sound just to name a few.
The Village Greens Resident™s Association says, œOne of the nicest things about living in the Village Greens will be the feeling of belonging. It has been said to be the best planned family development built in New York since the brownstones were built around a hundred years ago.

Originally named Dutch Farms, the town was then changed to Concord in 1845 after its namesake located in Massachusetts, where consequently, along with its neighboring town of Lexington, Massachusetts in 1775 the American Revolution had begun. The famous American naturalist and author, Henry David Thoreau and Judge William Emerson, brother of Ralph Waldo Emerson who lived in nearby Emerson Hill, were, to name a few, of the early settlers of Concord.
Nowadays, the residents of Concord consist of those enjoying its convenient proximity to Brooklyn, as well as easy transportation to New York City. Our latest listing at 43 Pierce Street is a great example of having that perfect combination of easy city living located in suburbia.
This rare all-brick townhouse is a perfect home for the first-time homebuyer or a seasoned buyer looking to downsize to a low-maintenance simpler type of home. Built in 2003, the owner of this two bedroom home has added many upgrades and details to it in order to make this home not only warm and inviting but also nothing short of stunning.
Upon entering the custom-made stained Plexiglas door of this home, you will find an immediate open and airy feeling given way by the 12 foot ceilings. The open layout of the first floor hosts a living room, half bath and a very large eat-in kitchen. The hardwood floors are absolutely gleaming and have a decorative wavy inlay on the floor giving a distinct separation from the lighter toned oak floors of the living room to the darker wood of the eat-in kitchen.
Little details throughout the first floor will grab your eyes in every direction, from sconces, to the fireplace in the living room, to the little wine cubby inserts on the wall of the staircase, and even the little hand painted tile accents the owner added to the backsplash of the kitchen that were imported from Poland. The kitchen also gives way to the beautifully done glass french door leading to the backyard. Priced at $309,000, this still tax abated, 1,859 square foot, end unit property is one of the biggest lots on the row of these townhouses. It not only has a large front yard with a carport, but also a nice sized side yard and backyard that is completed with white PVC fencing. All of which are rare where townhouses are concerned.
Continuing up the oak staircase with a slate tile landing, you will find a modern custom made stained glass window accent whose other side is in the step-up vanity nook located in the nice sized master bedroom complete with a double door closet. Complimented with high ceilings as well on the second floor, there is a second bedroom that is just as big as the master bedroom. In lieu of the vanity nook, this second bedroom hosts two double doored closets. Sunny is the word that comes to mind when describing the master bath because of not only the skylight, but also the beautiful muted lime green tiled floors that look like they came straight out of a Better Homes & Gardens magazine.

The popular perception of the natural migration of families leaving Brooklyn to purchase a home seems to be, first they move to Staten Island and then later on to New Jersey. All too often you™ll find that this migration is put at a standstill when that first purchase lands them in Great Kills, Staten Island, even more specific the Dent Road area of Great Kills. (excerpt from 60 Ocean Rd, from Trending)
Its family-friendly setting coupled with a country-like ambiance seems to be key factors why most people who reside in the Dent Road area of Great Kills don™t want to leave. Many residents refer to this area as a town rather than a neighborhood due to its wonderful old world charm. This area has little turnover over the years. Consequently, many of the homes here, stay in the same family for generations. For that reason home values have remained stable, and those that do sell run in the price range from the low $400,000s to upwards of $800,000.
The other feature you will come to understand about this homes location is its neighbors, the natural kind. Basically, all of the streets are lined with 200+ year old oaks, maples and pines. The Dent Road area of Great Kills, is by far one of the best naturally shaded areas on Staten Island. The home sits on gradual hillside slope, with the rear of the home having a southeast exposure. Not being far from the Raritan Bay, this home takes in cool ocean sea breeze nearly all summer long.
A Stoll down Great Kills Road, which is the homes cross street, gives you quick access to Great Kills Harbor, The New Seaside Nature Park and a slew of Staten Island™s best restaurants on Mansion Ave.
Our latest listing at 60 Ocean Road, priced affordably at $419,000 lies in the heart of the highly desired Dent Road Area. Deceiving from the outside, this one family semi-attached colonial home boasts 1,953 square feet of living space and a property size of 2,325 square feet.
The first allure upon entering this 3 bedroom home is the oversized living room that is a rare find in even many detached homes. In addition to its formal dining room complete with a pantry and half bath, is a traditional kitchen that hosts a dinette area that can comfortably seat 6 people. The entire first floor has an open and airy layout with lots of natural light that actually glistens throughout the entire home.
In the formal dining room there are also glass sliding doors giving access to the large deck that hosts both a dining and sunning area for those lazy summer days. The deck has a staircase that leads down to the serene backyard complete with an above-ground pool.
Did I mention the convenience of a bathroom on every floor? Yes, even a full bath in the full finished basement, which might I add, also has glass sliding doors that lead to the backyard. So no worries on those summer afternoons of the children jumping out of the pool and tracking water through your home to go to the bathroom!
Although there may be a few slight updates needed to satisfy one™s taste, this oversized semi-attached home at 60 Ocean Road is a very rare find. This airy and spacious home set in a quiet country like setting is a great place to come home to after the hustle and bustle of the busy every day.
