The sale of 108 Westminster Road in Watermill for $1.45 million will help rebuild 10 Staten Island Homes that were damaged by Hurricane Sandy, which made landfall on Oct. 29, 2012.
The home, according to Douglas Elliman, which brokered the Calf Creek waterfront home, was bequeathed by Sarah Rubenstein, who passed away at the age of 96, to the non-profit Habitat for Humanity, an organization that helps to provide housing for those in need.
“The extraordinary thing about this is that the money earned from one single home, in one of the most luxurious markets in the country, will provide enough funds to build 10 homes for those in need in Staten Island,” added said Neil Hetherington, New York City CEO for Habitat for Humanity.
The three-bedroom, two bathroom house, according to Douglas Elliman, hit the market in June and sold on August 30.
Work on the Staten Island homes, which is part of the 2013 Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project is expected to start on October 6.
