Now, homes for sale in Dongan Hills span an impressive range of 20th-century architectural styles, including Classical-revival, and Tudor.
The walkable tree-lined streets, characteristic of New York's older neighborhoods, grant access to many impressive frontages, often built in split-level configurations with staircases leading to raised porches.
Even with the variety, potential buyers can still find the white-panel siding on red-brick exterior design typical of many Staten Island communities. The northeast portion of Dongan Hills, for example, is particularly characterized by single-story homes with hipped roofs. Moving south, one will see more split level semi-detached dwellings, as well as 3-story long houses. Moving west, one is likely to see more variety, including farm houses, 2.5 story homes, and condominiums. Approaching Todt Hill, the homes get even larger.
Again, the variability of sizes and styles throughout the area is impressive. Form single-story miniatures, to large luxury homes - you'll be able to find it Dongan Hills. And as for property features, solar panels and in-ground pools put in an impressive showing here.
