Things we love about this property crush:

This smartly designed Maplewood mid-century home marries the best of city living with the suburbs. First: There’s loads of space. A two-story foyer opens to a sunken living room and formal dining area. And then there’s the eat-in kitchen that Pinterest boards are made of. Think sleek marble counters, a gorgeous sink and all the bells and whistles (like a wine cooler and SubZero fridge).

The master suite boasts a custom-made walk-in closet and a bathroom with a massive glass-enclosed shower that’s big enough for a party, (if that’s your kind of thing). But this house feels far too grown up for that. Case in point: The master suite features a private rooftop deck.

Outside, the big backyard boasts a lush lawn and a private terrace—the whole reason you leave the city. And the location is tops: It’s near the Maplewood New Jersey Transit station, meaning New York Penn Station is only a zippy 41-minute commute away.
