Dear Prospective Buyer,

We bought this incredible house over ten years ago, and it has always been home. Leaving this house, this street, and this community isn’t easy, as we’ve built a great life, with our children, here together. We’ve always loved what a unique, progressive, diverse and close knit community South Orange is. And we’ve truly appreciated the quiet privacy on Whiteoak Drive, with lots of great memories of our children playing and riding their bikes with their friends on the street. And this house – with it’s many charms: modern designer kitchen and bathrooms, large bedrooms, great private backyard and deck, an open and perpetually sunny spacious family room with a wall of windows- perfect for entertaining – was at the heart of that life.  And as great as the house is, the community might be better. The Newstead section of South Orange is beautiful; with many trees, streets lit by gas lamps, close proximity to the reservation, the dog park, and to downtown. It is a warm, inclusive, and diverse neighborhood, where we’ve been fortunate to make many great friends. And all of this is just a 30-minute commute into Penn Station, making for as painless a commute as you can find in NJ. We came to South Orange over ten years ago as strangers with two small children, we leave with middle schoolers, lifelong friends, and great memories. We hope 66 Whiteoak Drive brings you as much joy as it did us.

Best Wishes,

The Current Owners of 66 Whiteoak Drive
