Dear Future 37 Essex Ave Homeowners,

When we stepped into Maplewood, this was not what we pictured New Jersey to look like. Maplewood has amazing old world charm, gorgeous trees, beauty, & the cutest downtown. We have New York at our access w/ a convenient 30 minute commute, we have so many amazing local events (the food/beer truck fall festival is 2 blocks from our house & you can’t miss Maplewoodstock in the summer) as well as local parks & recreation at our fingertips. But even beyond all that is the incredible & diverse community here in SOMA, we have made so many great lifelong friends here. Welcome to 37 Essex Ave, our home for close to 5 years. I recall house hunting years ago, So many of the houses didn’t live up to our expectations, but when we walked into this house, We instantly felt the warmth & love this home wraps you in. It’s a comment we’ve gotten year after year from visitors, how happy & warm it is. What we love most about this home is: Light- being the corner house we get a ton of natural light and an incredible cross breeze. Insulation- the previous owners put a lot of effort in properly insulating- although a hidden feature but so important in an older home. The master suite- I think this was the selling point when we purchased the house, a huge escape for us in the evenings. The updates- we put so many great updates into the house over the years- new hardwood floors on the second floor, a new gas furnace, updated fixtures throughout, a modernly rustic renovated kitchen & all new appliances in the house. Location-Being a block away from Clinton elementary school has its perks, we can pop over to the playground in a few minutes. We are a 14 minute walk to south orange train station, and a couple blocks walk to 2 different jitney stops.

Unfortunately, we have to move out of state for our careers, and we will miss this home like crazy, but we hope that the new owners will love it as much as we did. It is filled with happiness, warmth and good energy and has so much to offer the future owners.
