new listing on 17 Colgate in the College Hills section of Maplewood
“We moved to Maplewood 15 months ago with a 6 yo and a 2yo. It was our 2nd time looking at houses in the area. We were partial to the areas between Springfield Ave and the train tracks for the neighborhood feel and decent house and lot size. Also we wanted to be close to the train. The area between the train and South Mountain Reservation is amazing but was way out of our price range. We expected to end up east of Springfield Ave for our price range but got lucky and found a house in walking distance to the train and downtown.”
“Nearly all of our parent friends live in the zone West of Springfield Ave and all their blocks have a nice family vibe with great house character. I don’t know much about the other side of Springfield Ave beyond what we saw house hunting.”
“The elementary schools in the SOMA school district are all great. I wouldn’t worry about which one you are zoned for in your house hunt. We had heard that Tuscan was the prime school when we were first looking, but we love Clinton which is the ESL school and a little more diverse. I’ve never met anyone that doesn’t love their zoned school.
There are plenty of full time preschools but none of them are public. We like the South Mountain YMCA and have heard good things about Village Babies. Neither one is any cheaper than Brooklyn daycare. We had googled several low cost options before moving but weren’t comfortable with them after visiting.”
“Good luck with your search! The quality of life for our kids is so far beyond what we could afford in Brooklyn.”
Mark was not one of my clients, but agreed to allow re-posting of his testimonial.
