|The residence at One Pendleton Place is significant under criterion C in the area of architecture as a rare example of a High Victorian Italian style villa on New York City's Staten Island. The house was illustrated twice, in 1862 and 1869, in the Horticulturalist magazine, the journal which helped popularize picturesque designs in the United States. Many original decorative elements on the exterior have survived decades of neglect, and the exterior has been thoughtfully restored by the present owners beginning with their stewardship in 1983. Additionally, the house is one of two of the earliest example of the work of Charles Duggin (1830- 1916), who practiced in NYC from 1855 to 1888. Through credited with numerous designs, particularly in Manhattan, One Pendleton Place and an earlier house at 22 Pendleton Place (c. 1855, a designated New York City Landmark) are considered to be his best-known and most significant works. The period of significance for the house is 1860, the date of the home's construction.
