LETTER TO FUTURE OWNER

Dear Prospective Buyer,

Welcome to 123 Oakland Road! Oakland is a quiet, tree-lined street with great neighbors and lots of families. It is close walking distance to Maplecrest Park on Oakland Road and Maplewood Pool on Boyden Avenue. The jitney to the train station stops at the corner, but it is an easy walk to the train station. This home is close to both Clinton Elementary and Seth Boyden Elementary (both excellent schools), Maplewood Middle School and Columbia High School. We were very happy with the Maplewood/South Orange school system.

The sycamore trees on the street, besides being beautiful, offers cooling shade and helps to keep the house cool. One of my favorite things to do in the morning is to have my coffee on the back patio and watch the sun come up. The afternoon sun filters through the trees and lights up the rear office, making the view from the desk especially enjoyable.

This has been an amazing home to raise our two children (now teenagers). We have made friends that we will have forever. We have enjoyed progressive dinners with neighbors, community yard sales and backyard barbecues. I have felt very safe living here and everyone looks out for one another. We have loved living here, hosting thanksgivings and birthday parties, hanging stockings above the fireplace at Christmas and filling baskets at a neighbor’s annual Easter egg hunt.

Good luck on your search for your home. We have made many wonderful memories in this home. I wish the same for you.

Best Wishes,

The Current Owners of 123 Oakland Rd
