Dear Future 101 Oakland Rd Homeowner,
Welcome to a thriving community of generous, happy, and fun people.
From the moment we arrived our neighbors welcomed us, quite literally to a bbq that was going down as our moving truck pulled up. Walks to school, the park, the pool, the playground, into town for dinner or ice cream, this quiet town became bustling for us quickly and we immersed ourselves with everything it had to offer. From weekly adventures in south mountain reservations, hanging out on our block, to quick drives to the beach or Manhattan, anything we’ve ever wanted to see or do has been in reach.
Oakland Road is the place to be from singles to families, everyone has a place in our pocket of Maplewood and we take great pride in our street. A common question exchanged in Maplewood is asking what street you live on, and everyone “knows” someone on Oakland and it proves to be a friendly street with neighbors who truly enjoy and rely on each other. There’s always something going on, whether it’s the year of “THE BLIZZARD” where the dads thought it would be fun to race in shoveling the sidewalks, the morning commuters that pass by on their way to the train, neighborhood kids of various ages and endless hours of playing, annual block parties and bake offs. Finding a village comes quickly and don’t be surprised if you have something from the adored Able Baker on your porch the first morning you wake up here.
We left the city after a decade in search of ease, comfort, and space. What we sought was found in Maplewood with a large backyard to run around in, a community that will step up at a moments notice when you are running late to pick up, a place where kids still walk to school, and your mailman delivers right to your doorstep. This house was an ideal haven for us from a busy day of work in the city for my husband, and a perfect place to raise and grow our children. The backyard that can be seen from the large bay kitchen window sold me as a parent coming from the city. The ability to let the kids and dog out into a fenced backyard has made life easy over and over again. From movie nights in our basement living room, watching the snow fall from our chairs, and starting a business from our very own Maplewood room; this house has been a dream come true where our lives all flourished and yours will too.
