Grymes Hill Real Estate
Residential properties in Grymes Hill are mostly private, detached residences. Many of these were constructed for wealthy area businessmen in the early to mid 20th century.
The area displays an eclectic mix of architectural styles spanning American design trends from the 1920s onward. For example Craftsman, Foursquare, Tudor-revival, and various Victorian and Colonial revival styles can all be found in Grymes Hill.
The hilly terrain has necessitated an irregular layout, uncharacteristic of many other New York neighborhoods. The distinctly wooded character of the area means that many properties boast mature trees along with regular visits from the native fauna.
The sloped terrain has also resulted in yards with terraced layouts, and many prominently raised front porches with stairs leading down to the sidewalk. However, even with these landscaping challenges, a significant number of properties in Grymes Hill incorporate generously sized in-ground pools.
The area's most prestigious properties are located along the northern portion of Howard Avenue. These are some of Staten Island's most luxurious homes, providing impressive views, stately facades, and even the odd carriage driveway.
Grymes Hill also has a lot to offer those with a tighter budget. For example, just north of the Wagner College campus, Grymes Hill Apartments and Grymes Hill Manor Estates include hundreds of 2 and 3 bedroom units in classic redbrick, reminiscent of America's Federalist building style.
A few highrises along Grymes Hill's southern edge complete the package for the full spectrum of housing options. And near Cebra Avenue on Grymes Hill's north end, newer condominiums are available.
