Similar to many of Staten Island’s neighborhoods, Bulls Head was very much undeveloped up until the late 1960’s, following the opening of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. Since then, it has grown quite a bit. Rather than the farms that once populated the area, you will now see condominiums, ranches, semi-attached houses and townhouses, among others. Being so close to the main streets, Bulls Head is often preferred by commuters, as well as by families, who find the short distance to stores quite convenient.
The most notable sale for this area was for $435,000 in October. This is a single-family home at 3340 Victory Boulevard. It is of a slightly newer construction and was built in 2001 on forty-two hundred square feet of property. The interior of this house has sixteen hundred square feet of living space. The following notable sale is a single-family home that sits at 25 Timothy Court and was sold for $365,000 in October. This home is slightly larger than the previous sale but was built in 1996. It was constructed on just over forty-four hundred square feet of land and has a living space of just about two thousand square feet.
The lowest sale for this area was for a condo at 19A Melissa Street. This sold for $160,000 in mid-August. The condo was built in 1986 and has approximately twelve hundred square feet of interior space.

Well, it’s been a while, since we’ve last done some reports here on recent real estate sales across Staten Island. It seems at least at this point, we have cleaned up some of the technical issues involving the blog. But, here we are again ready to deliver a little insight into the recent home sales in the Annadale neighborhood of Staten Island. So Let’s highlight a few recent home sales of note. The more familiar with Staten Island, and Annadale is really divided up into two sections, which are southeast Annadale and Annadale proper. I was difficult to ascertain whether they are two separate incorporated towns, but, purposes a real estate it’s considered as such. The purposes of this report, Which Is derived from New York City Department of Finance public sales records it doesn’t deviate from the two. And when it comes to Staten Island higher-priced home sales, the town of southeast Annadale is no stranger to setting high-price watermarks across Staten Island.
Well let’s start off with highest home priced sale and Annadale, which is in the southeast Annadale section. Back in July, setting the high-price watermark is the sale of 6 Nicolosi loop. This home interior measured at over 7000 ft.² of interior floor space, and sat on more than 11,000 ft.² of land. Nicolosi loop is a sister street of Nicolosi drive, which is a prominent luxury home community on Staten Island South Shore. The next home sale is located in Annadale proper. However, unlike the luxury home community of Southeast Annadale this home only measured up at 1400 ft.². However, the homes rests on over 40,000 ft.² property. I’m pretty sure the intent to purchase the house at $1.1 million, had something to do with the construction of some new homes. Well, I can’t say for sure, but it’s not likely stone purchased a 40,000 ft.² of land associated with this house with the intent of building an Olympic-size swimming pool, pool, full-size basketball court and tennis center. But, who’s to say.
One little section of Annadale has defied everything about this real estate market is. The sale of 51 Barb St., Which is part of larger town home development just outside of the town’s commercial section, just hasn’t seemed to lose any ground in terms of value. The 1600 square-foot town home which was built in 2004, settled up at $410,000. The townhouse development is located on of course Barb Street and encompasses Endview Street and Lorraine Ave. What makes it so unusual, is that town homes of similar size usually don’t fare as well value wise, and rarely rise above the $400,000 price territory.
Below is a rundown of the recent home sales in the Annadale neighborhood of Staten Island, which was derived from the New York City Department of Finances recent release of publicly recorded rolling home sales across New York City. And for the purposes of this report, I must also tell you the homes listed in this report may or may not be those listed, marketed and sold by licensed real estate brokers or their associated salespeople. If a property is shown a price of N/A means, the property was transferred on the referring date but without money considerations.

P.S. 206, however, educates from kindergarten through the eighth grade. The intermediate schools in the area are Junior High School 14 and Junior High School 278.

Walking a bit further, you will find a dinette and a spacious living room with sliding glass windows. On your right is a closet, accompanied by a bathroom. Next, you have the spare bedroom. Even further is the master bedroom, which is accompanied by the master bathroom. The master bathroom has been recently renovated with neutral-colored tiles which accentuate the rest of the room. The home, as a whole, is very bright with many earth tones. It™ll give you feeling as though you are living in New York City.
67 Vera Street is located in Dongan Hills, which is a neighborhood on the East Shore of Staten Island. After World War II, Dongan Hills was one of the first neighborhoods on the island to have an abundance of new home construction. At this time, many small-family homes were built. With the completion of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, Staten Island and Brooklyn were linked. This linking allowed Dongan Hills™ population to grow. Just as the population grew, so did the shopping centers.
When it comes to buying a home, you want to be aware of your surroundings and make sure that you pick the right place. In the vicinity is a plethora of shopping centers and restaurants, such as Staples, ShopRite, Goodfellas Brick Oven Pizza, and Fushimi Japanese Cuisine. Just a short walking distance away from the home, you can visit Lee™s Tavern and check out their famous thin-crust pizza. Likewise, if you™re in the mood for Chinese food, you can just walk to Hylan Boulevard and enjoy a good meal at Fortune Garden.
Just a short distance away from the co-op is Staten Island™s South Beach Boardwalk–the island™s best kept secret. The 1.7 mile boardwalk has been restored, attracting families back to the beach. During the summer months, you can enjoy the free concerts, and fireworks hosted there. The boardwalk area is filled with playgrounds, checkerboard tables, bocce courts, shuffleboard courts, baseball fields and a park with sprinklers for children. In addition to the boardwalk, you also have MacArthur Park, which has two baseball fields, a basketball court, a handball court, a playground, and an outdoor pool.
There is no shortage of transportation in the area. The home is within walking distance of the Dongan Hills train station, which is located by Seaview Avenue and North Railroad Avenue. In the opposite direction, you can go to Hylan Boulevard and take either the s78 anywhere between the Bricktown Mall and St. George, or the s79 anywhere from the Staten Island Mall and Bay Ridge in Brooklyn. Nearby, you also have the s51, which travels to and from St. George and Grant City along Bay Street and Father Capodanno Boulevard, and the s52, which goes to and from St. George and Staten Island University Hospital along Tompkins Avenue. Being so close to Staten Island University Hospital, the home is also great for current or aspiring Interns and Nurses. Of course, if you need to get somewhere else, you can always transfer from one of the above buses to another, as many of the bus lines intersect each other. There really is no need for a car when you live here.
With interest rates being at a record low, buying a home is possible. There is really no reason to pay rent on another place when buying this home is cheaper than renting. You can own this home for approximately $1,300.00 a month. This includes mortgage, tax insurance, water, and monthly maintenance.
Looking at the latest release of home sales in South Beach, Staten Island there was a few worth mentioning in the report. From a location standpoint South Beach is located slightly northeast of Midland Beach and borders the small community of Arrochar, to the north. Over the last decade South Beach, Staten Island real estate scene had shifted. As prices skyrocketed in Brooklyn, many potential homebuyers turned to South Beach as an affordable alternative to the expense of home ownership just across the Verrazano Narrows Bridge.
With that came a healthy demand, and that need was met with the construction of many new homes. As a matter of fact, it™s probably one of the most developed communities on Staten Island during the last decade. The development wasn’t just in residential real estate, commercial property property was also developed in earnest, at the time. The New York City also invested a huge amount of capital into the South Beach boardwalks reconstruction, and major new capital projects.
Let™s look at some of the area’s home sales from the latest public release of property sales issued by the New York City Department of Finance. The highest recorded home sale that took place in the neighborhood happened on November, 8th 2010 at 201 Bionia Avenue. It took $725,000, to change hands at the closing table.

When it comes to Staten Island pricier real estate communities Richmondtown, Staten Island is defiantly no stranger to the luxury home segment. By the way, there needs to be a debate about whether the town is exactly 2 words or one. I frequently see it as two, Richmond Town. Being a lifelong Staten Islander I™m petty sure it™s one word¦ Richmondtown. Please feel free to shed some light on that fact.
The town is located on the southern foot of Lighthouse Hill, abutting the towns of Oakwood and New Dorp to its southeast. In this latest report on home sales in the area there were a few that nearly crossed seven figure territory. 273 Natick St. took the top sales number in the NYC Department of Finance’s latest report on home sales. The over 4000 Square foot home, built in 1965 sold for 999,000. The next highest price sale took place on 122 St. Andrews Road. The 11 year old 2600 plus square foot home took $905,000, for the seller to part ways with the home. St. Andrews Road, is a little section of Richmondtown that hides innocuously under the rustic setting that surrounds the area. If you’re in the market for a higher end home, and you just happen to be driving around the neighborhood scouting it™s not a place that is easily found.
Below is a rundown of home sale in the neighborhood of Richmondtown, with a few from Lighthouse Hill. The home sales shown in this report are those that were derived from the New York City Department of Finance™s latest public release of home and property sale data.
