Location, style, thoughtful details. This bright, updated home is situated on a small, quiet street–tucked away, yet close to everything you need–less than a mile to the train & town center. If you’re looking for a move-in ready home bathed in natural light & filled with warmth & charm, look no further! The 1st floor of 31 Overlook has just enough openness for flow & togetherness & just enough separation so that everyone can do their own thing. Each room is lovely & inviting, but you may want to spend all day in the sweet sunroom! Each bedroom has ample space & the double sink in the hall bath is a welcome touch. The finished basement & easy-to-finish attic provide even more room to stretch. The fully fenced yard w/its sweet patio is a great outdoor extension & perfect for entertaining!
Dear Future Homeowner,
We’d like to start off by saying that we absolutely love this house. When we chose this as our first home purchase almost 3 years ago, we were so excited to move in. It was one of the most beautiful houses we’d seen and ended up being a perfect fit for our family. As our priorities are changing, we feel this is a good time to say goodbye and allow a new family to enjoy this wonderful home.
The first floor is one of our favorite parts of the house. The living room gets tons of light and is such a cozy place to wind down on the weekends. The kitchen is bright with the right amount of counter space, perfect for cooking all of our meals. A favorite area of ours is the sunroom. Surrounded by windows, it was such a great place to read a book or meditate in the early morning hours.
The backyard has hosted two of our son’s birthdays as well as a few family BBQs. The new platform deck and fire pit completely transformed the space! Lastly, our completely finished basement has been a great area for our family. Whether we’re watching a game or movie on one side, or playing with puzzles or homeschooling on the other side – that space has been a saving grace during this crazy time.
Truly, the best neighbors you could ask for. We were welcomed with open arms and have formed friendships that will last a lifetime. Overlook is the central point between several of the other surrounding streets so we’ve had the opportunity to shut down the street and host a few events as a community. We have an annual block party and we recently held a socially distant magician perform for the kids (which was a nice break from being stuck indoors!). Everyone is kind, generous and really a wealth of knowledge for new homeowners.
Maplewood is a gem of a town. Between the great activities and the amazing restaurants, you really can’t find a better place. Both adults work in NYC and commuted every day with no major issues.
We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to live in this amazing home and town. We have no doubt that you will love it just as much and we wish you all the best!
