Original (But Not at All Fusty) Stickley House in Maplewood Asks $1.4M

Location: Maplewood, New Jersey
Distance from Grand Central: 22 miles (a 45-minute drive) or a 37-minute train ride to Penn Station on N.J. Transit’s Morris & Essex line
Specs: 4 beds, 3.5 baths, 2,355 square feet, 0.66 acres
Price: $1,399,000


Built in 1909, this Arts & Crafts home is one of the most expensive in Maplewood, a New Jersey suburb that New Yorkers tend to like for its direct train access to the city, “Norman Rockwell-like main street” (as one 2018 New York Times article put it), annual block parties, art walks, and music festivals. Home prices in New Jersey suburbs are headed for the largest increase since 2005 as pandemic-weary New Yorkers go hunting for backyards and home offices, but your money will still go farther in “Brooklyn West,” as many residents like to call the town, than in the real thing.

As evidenced here: For the price of a two- or three-bedroom apartment in Park Slope or Williamsburg, you can buy a 2,355-square-foot masterpiece of craftsmanship on two-thirds of an acre. Designed by Gustav Stickley, an American furniture manufacturer, 27 Sagamore Road features chestnut paneled walls, beamed ceilings, built-in cabinets and benches, a floor-to-ceiling fieldstone fireplace, and original sconces and hardware. The kitchen has been redone with white cabinets, a farmhouse sink, and La Cornue range, and the bathrooms have been updated as well (the master bath includes a Japanese soaking tub from Tokyo). Sitting right across from the 2,110-acre South Mountain Reservation, the property also comes with a screened-in patio nestled into the hillside and a two-car garage.

A well-lit room has light blue concrete floors and a built-in bench.
The entry hall features wall-to-wall casement windows, as well as a built-in storage bench and coat closets.
A living room has wood furniture, wood floors, and a large fireplace.
In the living room, beamed ceilings and custom light fixtures by Paul Marantz (who previously owned the place) accent an imposing original fieldstone fireplace.
The dining room features built-in cabinets by Stickley, chestnut paneling, and more custom lighting.
A long white kitchen with wooden cabinets and an eat-in on one side.
The updated kitchen foregoes dark wood for a bright and airy all-white scheme. There’s a Cornufé range from Le Cornue, farmhouse sink, piecrust pendants, and an eat-in area overlooking the patio.
A bright bedroom has a white bed, blue rug, and big windows.
In the well-lit master suite, you’ll find a walk-in closet and a bathroom with a Japanese soaking tub.
A light blue screened-in patio with rug and seating.
The screened-in patio with quarry tile floors offers views out to the naturally landscaped backyard.
