Often described as one of Staten Island's best-kept secrets, many residents of Staten Island don't even know of its existence. This makes it the perfect secluded getaway without having to leave the island, with housing prices that are still well within the affordable range.

Although Ward Hill is an upscale neighborhood, the real estate prices reflect a more affordable side.

History of Ward Hill

Ward Hill's most recognizable historical landmarks is the Caleb T. Ward Mansion on Nixon Avenue. The Greek Revival mansion stands as a remarkable reminder of Ward Hill's namesake, who established the neighborhood in 1826 and later built his mansion at the top of the hill. Now, the mansion stands surrounded by other stately, well-appointed homes, many with breathtaking views of the Verrazano Bridge and lower Manhattan against the horizon.
