Maplewood, NJ - Perfect for the New York Commuter

Real Estate Agent with ERA Queen City Realty

Often consider part of the sixth borough of New York City, as well as Brooklyn West; Maplewood, NJ is perfect for the New York commuter. Approximately 36 minutes from New York Penn Station, the township is 3.9 square miles of rich cultural diversity and small town charm.  

Top of the list for most people moving into Maplewood from New York is the ease of access to New York City. Not only is there direct train service to New York City via New Jersey Transit's NYC Midtown Direct train line; the township has made it very easy to access the train, no matter where you live in the township. Most suburban towns have a parking lot at or adjacent to the train station. However, the challenge is being able to get an assigned parking spot - usually there is a rather lengthy list of applicants seeking to obtain a permit to park in the train station lots. Maplewood has eliminated the angst that typically accompanies the commuter's experience. The township offers jitney service from five origination points to the train station. Service operates Monday through Friday, from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and again at 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. Currently, the annual pass fee is $125. Maplewood, NJ - Perfect for the New York Commuter.

The second attractive attribute about Maplewood is the rich architectural landscape of affordable homes. 40 Suffolk Avenue is one such property. Just a three minute walk to the Elmwood Jitney Line.  A beautifully manicured green lawn with flower beds and mature trees flank this well maintained colonial at the front and rear of the property. Once you enter the home through the vestibule you are greeted by an expansive living room with hardwood flooring and wood burning fireplace.  The living room is flanked on one side by a sunlit family room and on the other a formal dining room with hardwood flooring and crown moulding. At the rear of the first floor is an enormous eat in kitchen with ample cabinetry and counter surface space for meal prep. The first floor is rounded out with a perfectly placed powder room.

The second floor is host to a full bathroom and three bedrooms including a master bedroom with a dressing room. The third floor features a massive fourth bedroom. 

At the basement level you will find a utility room, rec room, laundry room, storage room and powder room. Rounding out the property is the meticulously maintained green oasis at the rear of the property which is adjacent to a two car garage. All of this and more is available to you at $649,900.

Complementing the attributes of this home are township amenities and activities that include the Maplewood Community Pool, which is open from late May through Labor day Weekend.  For outdoor space beyond your property, you will find Maplewood Memorial Park, nearly 25 acres housing a sports field, a tennis court & a playground, plus picnic facilities.There is also an annual two day music festival in July called Maplewoodstock. The arts are further supported through The Burgdorff Center for the Perfoming Arts"Located steps from Maplewood Village, the multi-purpose facility houses a 100 seat theatre and a 1600 square foot community room. Suitable for classes, performances and private functions, both spaces are available for rental to residents and non-residents of Maplewood Township."
