Dear Future Owners of 49 Claremont Drive,
This isn’t an easy letter to write, because we love this house, and would call it home forever if we could, but life is full of surprises and is ever changing… and so, it is with excitement and some sadness that a new adventure begins for us.
As we start this new journey, I am comforted to know that this home will soon care for another family as it has for us… holding you together in moments of sadness, and standing proudly with you during moments of joy.
From the moment we walked in on that spring day several years ago, we knew 49 Claremont Drive was the house for us. We loved so many things about the property, and have only grown to love it more during the time we’ve resided here. There is so much to love…
After more than 20 years of living in NYC, we city dwellers naturally had some trepidation about making such a huge change. But, once we moved in, we quickly found friends on the block and have enjoyed Claremont Drive’s annual events, including a summer block party and an annual neighborhood garage sale.
The proximity to town has been another huge benefit to living here. My husband commutes into the city and walks to the train every morning when the weather cooperates. But even on a rainy day, the Wyoming jitney stops just a half-a-block away making his trip to the train simple and fast. In short, we couldn’t have asked for a better location or an easier transition from NYC to the suburbs.
We have taken advantage of the proximity to NYC, and spent evenings in the city at restaurants & Broadway shows, but have also found excellent restaurants & theaters nearby. Maplewood is a charming town with a caring and diverse community of people, many of whom we now call close friends. Friends who will stay in our hearts forever. Friends who will soon be yours, and we know they will welcome you with the same warmth and love they gave to us.
We KNOW you will find the same happiness here that we found. And we are excited and thrilled for your next chapter to begin here.
Wishing you the best of luck in all that you do,
The current owners of 49 Claremont Drive
