LETTER TO FUTURE OWNER

Dear Future 201 Montague Place Homeowners,

Welcome to 201 Montague Place in South Orange! We absolutely love this house and have loved living here with our two young children. In fact, we joke that we want to actually move this house with us to Madison, Wisconsin! We have put a lot of love into this house and we hope you appreciate it. After our daughter was born, we turned the side porch into a playroom for her. We then tackled the front porch, the landscaping, and the 2nd floor bathroom. This past year, we replaced the cabinets, counters, backsplash, and appliances in the kitchen. We hope you enjoy the slate finish of the appliances as much as we do. It is easy to clean and looks attractive.

One aspect of this house that has been very handy is the finished 3rd floor attic. It is a great space for overnight guests, ensuring they have privacy, and has really been wonderful for grandparents. We even put a refrigerator and coffee pot up there, so they could have some space of their own. We have also really enjoyed having the smaller 3rd bedroom off the master bedroom. This has come in handy as a nursery and is really useful for middle-of-the-night wakings and feedings!

What really makes 201 Montague Place a special place, however, is our neighbors. Situated on the corner, we regularly see and interact with our neighbors on both Tichenor and Montague Place. We are surrounded by families with young children! It is not uncommon on a sunny afternoon walk around the block for neighbors to invite you and your children over to play. Afterschool and on the weekends, the kids in this neighborhood play together outside and in each other’s yards. The sense of community here is so strong, it reminds me of my own Midwestern upbringing in the late 1980s, where we would play outside all afternoon and then come in when we heard the dinner bell.

This home and neighborhood has been so wonderful for our family. We hope that you and your family appreciate it!

Sincerely yours,
The Current 201 Montague Place Homeowners
