Dear Future 7 Alden Homeowner,

Welcome to Maplewood and 7 Alden Place! We know that you will love the town and this comfortable home as much as we have.

In the eight years since we moved here, we’ve made many wonderful memories. The quiet, traffic-free location on Alden Pl has been perfect for our children to learn to ride their bikes and scooters, while spending countless hours playing with their friends. The private front yard offered a place for our son to learn to play baseball and football, and the spacious backyard patio has been perfect for hosting barbecues and birthday parties.

The home itself has many charms and retains much of its original character, with hardwood floors throughout, a dedicated “Maplewood room” that has served as our childrens’ playroom, and a sun-filled living room that flows into the dining room and was perfect for entertaining friends and family. Upstairs, there are three spacious bedrooms, including a master bedroom with a dedicated dressing area and built-in closet, and the fully finished basement offers a second full bathroom, dedicated laundry and exercise rooms, and plenty of space for family and overnight guests.

As wonderful as the house is, the Maplewood community is one of a kind. It is a warm, inclusive, diverse neighborhood, where we’ve been fortunate to make many great friends and have wonderful neighbors who we see in the street on summer evenings, at our annual block parties, and on the local playground after school.

Finally, the location here is incredibly convenient. You can walk to the train in just ten minutes for an easy 30 minute commute into Penn Station, or to town for bagels on Saturday morning or Arturo’s pizza in the evening. The Maplewood town pool is just a short drive away in the summer, and the beautiful South Mountain Reservation just a few minutes away through Maplewood or any of the neighboring towns.

It won’t be easy leaving Maplewood and this house, but it has enriched our lives with lifelong friends and great memories. We hope 7 Alden Place brings you as much joy as it did us.
