Why Not Grab A Sushi Burrito in Summit and Take a Look at This New Listing

I was driving through Downtown Summit and taking pics to prepare for the launch of a new website catering to Union County Real Estate. After getting some shots of the streetscape and the iconic Summit Diner,

I noticed the flags announcing a new restaurant--INSPIRATION ROLLS--and couldn't resist giving it a try. My taste buds and hunger were more than satisfied and I highly recommend it to everyone.

Inspiration Roll is the sushi burrito restaurant concept that is revolutionizing sushi culture with made-to-order, hand-held sushi burritos in delicious Asian and Latin flavor combinations. They go even further to craft the best and most Authentic Ramen Noodle Soup around, it's time you've tried it!

They're dedicated to bringing a new flavor to Summit. Their decorum features inspirational quotes from famous figures throughout history. They encourage you to come in for a positively relaxing meal and dare you to widen your palate with their new flavors.


At the same time, I have just listed a new Luxury home in Summit at 68 Linden Place. This four bedroom home with 3 full and one half bath, built in 2008, has luxury written allover it and is being offered at $1,250,000. This home is just steps from Summit Schools and Soldiers Memorial Field with track, tennis and basketball courts, playground and more; it's also just 7/10'ths of a mile into downtown Summit and the NJ Transit Train station. If you have any questions, please text me or give me a call at 917-797-5059.


LIVE, PLAY AND WORK IN LUXURY!

This 4 bed/3.5 bath home has it all: Live, Play and Work in this luxurious newer construction home.

From the start, after stepping into the front foyer, you know you are living a life of luxury. Straight ahead you will see the sun-drenched breakfast room that leads you into the newer gourmet kitchen which then opens into a great room that has plenty of sunlight and a fireplace to keep you cozy in the Fall and Winter. To really impress your friends, put your coffee table there and put a flower from the front yard in a vase. The kitchen has granite counter-tops, an eat-in area and wood floors. There is also a large pantry which is perfect for storing your cinnamon and cloves as we start the Fall Season. Bask in the sunshine beaming through the windows or step out onto your patio for a breath of fresh air. You can also wake up in the morning and let the dog outside while you stay inside sipping your first cup of coffee or to avoid an inclement day.

The home office is just down the hallway, making this a perfect place to work from home, away from the high traffic areas frequented by a family. Need to really Escape? Then head up the atrium ensconced staircase, where you can enjoy the open sitting room or retire into the privacy of the master bedroom suite with cathedral ceiling. The master bath has a double vanity and shower. Just down the hall, you can find three more generously sized bedrooms, as well as the second and third bathrooms with their tub/shower combos. Start a bath or switch to a shower if you are indecisive.

Still want more, then find yourself surprised by the size and breathe of the basement. There is plenty of storage space for all the stuff that you pack up and move and are planning to go through one day; but, the real prize is the potential of finishing this super-sized space into a recreation room that could almost support a game of indoor basketball with unusually tall ceiling clearance.
