Spotlight on Todt Hill Staten Island
Exclusive, secluded, picturesque – just a few of the words you can use to describe Staten Island’s tony neighborhood of Todt Hill. Strict zoning laws means you won’t find a business district in this community, but the killer views, sprawling homes and serene surroundings more than make up for it.
Real estate in Todt Hill means luxury – gated mansions, huge center hall Colonials, Mediterranean villas, stately Tudors, all on large pieces of property (the minimum lot size allowed is 10,000 square feet) with immaculate lawns and walls of privacy-keeping trees. There are no stores or businesses in Todt Hill; this is meant to be a secluded haven in the rush of city.
Todt Point is the highest elevation on the Eastern Seaboard south of Maine – which means stunning views of Manhattan, Verrazano Bridge, NY Harbor and the New Jersey Shore. The neighborhood has deep historical roots in the area; the Moravian Cemetery has been in use since Colonial times.
One of the centers of activity in Todt Hill is the Richmond Country Club, with its private 18 hole golf course, tennis court and swimming pool. Great schools are the norm in this high-end Staten Island neighborhood; top marks are given for their public schools as well as the prestigious Staten Island Academy, a private school for K-12.
