LaTourette House is a historic home located at New Springville, Staten Island, New York. It was built in 1836 in a late Federal / early Greek Revival style. It is a large, sturdy gable roofed brick farmhouse with stone trim. In 1928 the house and 500 acres were purchased by New York City for a golf course and the house was converted to a clubhouse. The large, white "L" shaped wood porch and one story extension were added in 1936 as part of a Work Projects Administration restoration project.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
