Dear Prospective Buyer,

Welcome to our home.

It is hard to put into words just how much we have loved living in this home and neighborhood. Every time we turn into Washington Park we are reminded of how lucky we are. Not only is it a beautiful street to live in; it is filled with wonderful, kind and caring families that are always ready to stop for a chat, or lend a hand. We have had so much fun at our annual block party, regular drinks nights, the annual holiday decoration of the lamp posts and Halloween festivities…

As a dead end road it’s great for children to have the freedom to play ­ safe in the knowledge that there is little, if any, traffic. The ‘top of the loop’ is the perfect quiet spot for kids to ride their bikes, kick a ball or walk the dog.

We have truly loved our home. It has provided the perfect setting for so much happiness and joy. Our only sadness is that when we move back to the UK this Summer ­ we can’t take the house with us! So many happy hours have been spent in the backyard ­ enjoying barbeques, birthday parties or just a bit of peace and quiet swinging in the hammock! We have also been spoiled by our front porch ­ the perfect spot to ‘people watch’ or just quietly read a book and have a coffee.

From the moment we moved into the house it felt like ‘home’. It has been the perfect fit and size for our family of five and has always seemed so well proportioned. I love walking up the stairs to our light and airy landing from which all four bedrooms branch off. And every morning when we open the master bedroom curtains and look out, we are reminded of how lucky we are to live on such a beautiful street. The finished basement was a welcome addition and has provided the perfect space for overseas visitors who have stayed for longer than a weekend. It would be equally suitable accommodation for an au pair or nanny.

Maplewood is a wonderfully supportive and inclusive community, a truly unique and special town with so much to offer and so much going on. Whether it be a concert in Memorial Park, the fabulous Halloween Parade downtown, or restaurant week,­ there truly is something for everyone. We are confident you will love it as much as we have.

Best wishes,
The Owners of 7 Washington Park
