Dear Future Homeowners of 20 Gilbert Place, 

Our house was built around 1928 and we are only the second owners. That says a lot for this house and neighborhood!  You will love the open floorplan of this home, especially in the brand new kitchen which we just finished over the summer.  The dining room is open to the living room which has been wonderful for family gatherings. An extra treat is the Maplewood room which is off of the living room. It served as a playroom when our three children were small and then turned into an office later once we finished the basement. 

This house has a wonderful backyard which we have spent many evenings just chilling. It has also hosted many neighborhood and family gatherings. A bonus is that it backs up to the school field so it feels very private. 

We are located right around the corner from the jitney service that will bring you to any of the three train stations that serve NYC.  And if you prefer to drive to the any of the train stations it will take you less then 10 minutes.  We are close to Shop Rite and Whole Foods and CVS is right down the street. We are also very close to the elementary school and middle school.  The Turtle Back Zoo is minutes away and there is a great little neighborhood playground at the end of the street. 

20 Gilbert Place has given our family a sense of community, life long friends and great memories. We hope you will fall in love with this beautiful home and neighborhood.
