When we bought this house 16 years ago we were moving within Maplewood to a larger home.  Now we are moving because our children are grown and it’s time to downsize.  When we moved here, we had two elementary age children and we were looking to move to the South Mountain Elementary School zoned area. When we pulled up to this house and saw the beautiful large front porch with its dentil molding, we fell in love.  Owen Drive is a lovely, quiet, small street that’s off the main thoroughfares and ideal for teaching a child to ride a bike or taking a dog for a walk.

We have loved raising our family in this beautiful home and have truly enjoyed all the neighborhood has to offer.  Every autumn: Owen Drive hosts a lively block party replete with grilled items, pot luck dishes, a bouncy house and, of course a visit from the fire fighters who arrive with their hook and ladder.  During the holiday season we have enjoyed participating in the neighborhood “Sip and Stroll”, an evening event comprised of walking to four or five host homes for varied small bites and adult refreshments.  South Mountain Elementary School is a warm, intimate, highly rated school and is an easy walk from the house.  This is a quiet neighborhood to play in, complete with a flat street, and the South Mountain Reservation affords many lovely hikes and running paths.  The jitney stop to the train station is around the corner and it’s a quick walk to either Maplewood or South Orange stations.  We are close to all the best that South Orange and Maplewood have to offer.

We’ll miss our house, the many big parties it has hosted over the years, the holidays, the meals we’ve enjoyed on the back deck, the coffee we’ve savored on the front porch and the evenings spent relaxing by the fire.  We know you will find a wonderful home here at 23 Owen Drive, and know you will love it as much as we do.
