BOGO: Buy this Tree House and get a house with it

Our newest listing in Maplewood, at 534 Academy St, is very convenient and offers some wonderful amenities and offers two "houses" for the price of one--in other words, if you buy the tree house you get the 4 bedroom home with it, or vice-a-versa.


All kidding aside, this home is only 7/10's of a mile to the Maplewood Train Station with service to NYC Penn Station.  There are four bedrooms with the convenience of 1 full bath and a first floor powder room.  Rather unique is the fact that there are both a sunroom as well as a family room on the first floor.  There is both a deck, right off the family room, as well as a hidden oasis in the very back yard with the blue stone steps that lead to a hidden patio--perfect for a fire pit.

Here are some of my favorite pics of this wonderful home:

Welcome to 534 Academy St in award winning Maplewood, NJ. From the minute you pull up, you will notice the beauty that this home offers. Upon entering, you will notice a wood burning fireplace insert that can truly help warm you up on cold winter nights. Continuing with the first floor, you will find a side sunroom that would be a great office space. There is also a formal dining room, an updated kitchen with stainless-steel appliances, which has an extension with desk area that also doubles for the entrance to a wonderfully hidden family room with large windows to embrace everything nature has to offer. There is also a deck off the family room that allows for a smooth transition to the backyard and outdoor spaces. And, because this house is wonderful for entertaining, it's apropos that there is a first-floor powder room for convenience. Heading upstairs you will find 3 bedrooms and a full bath to allow for a restful slumber on the second floor. One more flight up you will find the primary bedroom, bringing the total to 4 bedrooms that this home offers, with exposed brickwork, a walk-in closet and additional storage. Outside, you will find a lovely oasis, offering a good-sized backyard with a tree house, a blue stone path and patio and lastly, a 2-car detached garage with additional parking. This home is 7/10's of a mile to NJ Transit Trains and Maplewood's downtown village.

A picturesque town in Essex County, Maplewood is located on the East Branch of the Rahway River. Originally consisting of farms, mills and orchards, Maplewood is now a great mix of residential and commercial areas, culminating in the jewel of a downtown village and coming together to create a charming, tight-knit and diversified community. Maplewood has predominantly Colonial and Tudor style homes with sprawling porches and ample greenery, but you can also find some Victorians and a range of more modern style construction on its beautiful tree lined streets. Maplewood is a diverse town with 6 elementary schools and prominent municipal building designed by famous architects, Guilbert and Betelle. In the center of town, famed landscape architects, the Olmstead Brothers, created the breathtaking Memorial Park; not to be overlooked is Ricalton Square, nestled between the train station and the downtown shopping; this area is frequently used for events including a Halloween Parade with hayrides and petting zoos, as well as featuring replica homes during the Winter Holiday Season. The town offers many activities to its residents from camps in the summer, arts and crafts classes, a public pool (with 4 pools ranging from a “baby” pool to toddler pool to large lap pool and a diving tank) and a farmers market when in season. There is even an annual musicalpalooza--Maplewoodstock—featuring a variety of bands and musical styles, showcasing local and national bands with booths for local businesses to set up. The Village, also known as Maplewood Center, is a quaint, downtown shopping district with everything from restaurants with foods from all over the world, bakeries, dance studios, gyms, bookstores, a movie theater and bookstores. With its large variety of cuisines to choose from, Maplewood recently started a yearly town-wide Restaurant Week with over 30 eateries participating. Easily accessible by its throughways and the New Jersey Transit, it's no surprise Maplewood has been ranked several times as one of the most desirable places to live in America by a number of surveys.
