Today we’re taking an in-depth look at 40 Highland Road! This sweeping 4 bedroom Great Kills property is so large, it actually goes by two different addresses- you can also refer to this home as 4 Dent Road.
This double-brick colonial has a large front yard AND backyard, a rarity on Staten Island. The home also sits on a corner property. There’s actually parking for up to 6 cars here, with a 4-car driveway and 2-car garage.

Inside 40 Highland Road
Through the front door immediately off to your right is a coat closet and also an intercom system. This area has wood floors throughout leading into the kitchen. Off to the left is a living room with a wood-burning fireplace.
Behind that is a porch which could also be used as a bedroom, office, or even storage. Through that, you gain access to the paved side yard!
There is a staircase in the center of the room. The kitchen is off to the right side.
This eat-in kitchen has transitional cabinets offering tons of cabinet space- so you’ll never run out! A pantry can also be found here, along with an eat-in nook on the other side of the bar. Many windows surround this space. Another highlight is the stainless steel dishwasher!
On the other side of the wall is a cozy, welcoming dining and den area. In addition to extra closet space, this level also features a gorgeous full bath with floor-to-ceiling tile which is charcoal grey in color!
Next to the staircase in the living room is another stairway where you can find the tiled finished basement downstairs. This space is large and has access to the garage too! Plenty of storage or recreational room down here, which is a great thing to have!
Upstairs: Bedrooms of 40 Highland Road
This level has four bedrooms in total, and there’s carpeting throughout with wood floors underneath! So the floors may be easily restored and refinished to wood should you choose to remove the carpeting.
Next, we make our way to the studio-sized master bedroom! This master suite has cathedral ceilings which make the space feel extra-large. There are several windows as well as a private terrace off to the side! This balcony looks over the backyard- you can enjoy the world below in the privacy of your own lawn! Off to the other side is a sitting area below the arched window.
Right outside this bedroom is the master bath. The corner jacuzzi bathtub and standup shower make for a luxurious experience. Thanks to a large arched window like the bedroom, this area has plenty of sunlight too!
And finally, we made it to this breathtaking backyard! This yard is certainly very impressive- properties like this only come on the market once in a blue moon.
Directly above the garage, the concrete veranda is surrounded by beautiful high-quality stone columns and brick detail. Down below is an expansive green lawn, which is great for parties, playtime for the kids, or just enjoying the scenery.
The veranda is perfect for barbecues, entertaining, and so much more!
