Pretty in pink takes on a whole new meaning in this one-of-a-kind house for sale. It’s a rosy portal to the 1970s—the four-bed, three-bath home in Staten Island’s Grasmere neighborhood is drenched in pastels.

The house, which was built in 1970, may appear to belong in another time period, but it’s been preserved so well that it’s in near-perfect condition. According to Realtor.com, that’s thanks to the fact that the property has had only one owner who cared deeply for the space. 

“Everything is in very good condition,” listing agent Richard Nichilo told Realtor.com. “It may not be updated, but it’s in very good condition.”

Step inside the 2,666-square-foot home and you’ll find plush pink carpeting throughout, winding from the spacious living and family rooms and continuing on in the bedrooms upstairs. The open steps are also painted a blush tone of rose, while endless mirrored walls in the home make the rooms appear even bigger than they already are.

“It’s chic. The pink colors and all of that stuff, that was what was going on back then,” said Nichilo, who has heard the space referred to as the “Goodfellas” house. 

Pink accents aside, there are a variety of unique details in the home, like its two eat-in kitchens on two different floors, each lovingly maintained. (The realtor pointed out that this was common of homes belonging to multi-generational, Italian immigrant families in the area.) And don’t miss the pink bar area, with a giant palm tree replica standing overhead.

There are a few departures from the pink theme. A cozy office space has red floors and a single exposed brick wall, while the master bathroom is as unique as can be, thanks to marble-style walls, extravagant chandeliers, and bold touches of orange. Set on a 4,312-square-foot lot, the home also has a spacious backyard area and a large patio.

No matter its bold color palette, it’s likely the home will be snatched up pretty quickly at its $829,000 price tag. With a prime location near public transportation and the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge that connects Brooklyn to Staten Island, commuters will surely be interested.

“The bones are solid, I mean really solid,” Nichilo continued. “If someone wants to go in and update the home, they’d have a beautiful home when they’re done if they wanted to update and renovate to their taste.”
