When it comes to private, tucked away neighborhoods on Staten Island, few are as lovely and idyllic as Lighthouse Hill, located within the Hills area of the island. Bordered on nearly all sides by the deep forests of High Rock Park, Lighthouse Hill is home to some of the most beautiful, upscale homes around, many with views of the historic Staten Island Range Lighthouse on Edinboro Road. The neighborhood's namesake 90-foot lighthouse tower was built in 1912, and it is the most recognizable landmark in the Hills, with a height of 90 feet, sitting perched atop Richmond Hill. For decades, the lighthouse kept ships from getting too close to Staten Island's rugged shoreline, and now, it continues to stand as a testament to period architecture, the history of the island, and its relationship to New York Harbor. Furthermore, Lighthouse Hill is adjacent to historic Richmond Town, a place that has been carefully preserved to show life as it was during the 18th and 19th Century, when Richmond Town was populated with Dutch, French, and English settlers. The town is a living museum, where visitors can spend the day watching period demonstrations and exploring the architecture of the time. Lighthouse Hill is perfect for those who need privacy with convenient access to amenities. The area is surrounded by parks like Latourette and High Rock. Latourette Country Club is nearby and offers members use of their historic club house as well as an 18 hole golf course. There are also a number of businesses, shops, churches/synagogues, and dining options on Richmond Road, just south of the neighborhood. Furthermore, a number of public and private nursery, elementary, and secondary schools are situated near Lighthouse Hill.
Many residents prefer to get around and off the island using their cars, which is easy to do from Lighthouse Hill. A short jaunt north to the Staten Island Expressway will get drivers to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. Those who choose to take public transportation can catch express and local buses with service all around the island and the St. George ferry terminal on Richmond Road and the Staten Island Railway stops at New Dorp train station, just two miles away
