Once you take in the sweet curb appeal of this Plymouth Ave home & enter the bright, renovated enclosed front porch, you won’t want to leave! Perfect as the days get colder, for coffee to cocktails. The charming living room with its built-ins & the warm dining room with adjacent den–ideal for an office/study/play space–will draw you further in. 1st floor powder room, mudroom & kitchen with new quartz counters & stainless steel appliances make it easy to move right in. 3 bedrooms + a large 3rd floor bonus room lets you spread out. Newly waterproofed basement with good ceiling height & exterior access leave room for even more space &/or plenty of storage. So close to Maplecrest Park, Hilton library, stores, & restaurants. Roomy patio & deep yard for outdoor enjoyment. Loads of improvements. Less than a mile from Maplewood downtown/train.

Dear Future Owners of 98 Plymouth Ave,
For 13 years we lived and grew and cherished our time there. The white house with the red mailbox is full of so many memories for us. We loved softball and Ultimate Frisbee at Maplecrest Park, story-time at the Hilton Branch Library, school concerts at the gazebo, walking our dogs through the park to Inspiration Dance.
98 Plymouth Ave was another member of our family, known to us as much as anywhere we had ever lived and to others as a place to come together. We loved sitting on the porch with coffee on weekend mornings, hosting Thanksgiving in our warm and inviting dining room, and sitting with friends on the patio as the kids played and ran and darted around us.
We remember our cozy bedrooms, sun-filled “Maplewood room,” basketball and bocce in the backyard, lemonade sales in the front.
We loved being surrounded by caring and kind neighbors with kids just like ours – running through each others’ yards, jumping through sprinklers, fire pits and campouts in the backyards.
Plymouth Ave is more than a street. We celebrated holidays with our neighbors and friends, stayed up late during our summer block parties, and joined one another for sing-alongs and socially distanced potlucks during the rough months in quarantine.
We will miss 98 Plymouth Ave for so many reasons. It was more than a home and we are grateful for having spent so many happy and memorable years there.
Wishing you your own Plymouth Ave experience.
Jeff & Julie
