You can’t find homes like this in Manhattan–you’re going to have to venture over into Staten Island. This freestanding Victorian, which occupies a large corner lot with a front and back yard, can be found at 309 Guyon Avenue in the neighborhood of Oakwood. Both the interior and exterior have been well preserved, with a turret and framework on the outside and fireplaces galore inside. The second floor holds four bedrooms, and there’s a finished attic on top of that. It’s up for grabs at a price just under $1.5 million.
A 79-foot by 99-foot lot means there’s plenty of outdoor space, plus room to park up to four cars. And the yard can be enjoyed from the charming wraparound porch.
Inside, details abound like carved wood, decorative fireplaces, hardwood floors and moldings. There are three fireplaces on this main floor.
A beautiful solarium, with a more modern aesthetic, is lined in dark wood.
Besides a formal living room and family room, there’s an extra space that could be used as a home office or study.
A formal dining room is located off a renovated kitchen outfitted with granite countertops, a charcoal grill and a commercial-grade Viking stove. (The kitchen, though, still has a historic touch of tin-lined ceilings.)
The second floor holds all four bedrooms, each of which are lined with windows. The master also comes with a large bathroom with a double vanity.
Finally, the attic was finished to provide extra storage or living space. The home spans a grand total of 3,320 square feet with plenty of unique living spaces. Just be sure to check the gallery for even more shots of this stately Staten Island abode.
