For $3M, a sprawling 1930s Tudor on Staten Island with pool and greenhouse

August 22, 2017

The Staten Island enclave of Emerson Hill is one of the borough’s most sought after thanks to tree-lined, winding roads, its secluded hill-top location offering panoramic views of New York Harbor, and, an impressive collection of just about 100 grand, historic estates. One such residence, a Tudor manor house located at 2 Emerson Drive, is currently on the market for $2,995,000 (h/t CIRCA). At an impressive, 5,000 square feet, the home is full of period details such as spider web stained glass, moldings and paneling galore, hand-carved fireplace mantles, and beamed ceilings. Plus, outside there’s a large in-ground pool and a Gothic greenhouse, all surrounded by beautiful gardens.

The three-story home was constructed in 1935 of stucco, brick, and stone.

Guests enter via arched Tudor doorways and a vaulted entryway. In the living room, you’ll find gilded European sconces, corbelled and beamed ceilings, and a floor-to-ceiling carved fireplace.

Adjacent to the living room is a family room that has custom built-ins, a window seat, and lots of windows overlooking the grounds.

On the other side of the entry hall is a Chestnut-paneled formal dining room. It boasts a crystal chandelier and sconces and a box bay window seat in front of stained glass.

From the dining room, through stained glass French Doors, is a sunny breakfast room with treillage-accented detailing. It opens to the kitchen, which has a bit more of a country style, complete with bracketed moldings, a blue-and-white toile motif carried out on decorative plates, the window seat fabrics, and tiles, butler’s serving station, and three sinks.

A small first-floor powder room was hand painted with a scene of the house itself.

Upstairs, the master suite has a large en-suite bathroom, study, and dressing room. It’s also just down the hall from a private balcony.

The third floor has another bedroom with an en-suite, as well as two more rooms that can be used as offices or additional bedrooms.

In the finished basement, you’ll find a large den with another fireplace and shelving, laundry room, powder room, storage, another living room, wine cellar, and access to the attached two-car garage.

The two-room heated greenhouse provides plenty of space to tend to the landscaped gardens, which line the paved walkways and patios.

And of course, the icing on the cake is a large heated pool.
