The Washington Park Neighborhood
The Washington Park neighborhood in Maplewood is unique in that it is a quiet cul de sac with a brook running through it yet it’s just steps away from all town amenities and offerings. Washington Park is lined with a uniformly well-maintained, older homes from the 1920s and 30s in a variety of styles and sizes. These homes have all the details, history and charm that you could want. You will often see neighbors out walking with their children and pets as it is very pedestrian friendly.
This neighborhood is conveniently located to Orchard Park and the quaint shopping district known as Ridgewood Row on the border of Maplewood and South Orange. This area includes shops such as Cedar Ridge Cafe & Bakery, Milk Money, and The Framing Mill. Many people who live in the area commute into NYC, and the neighborhood is within easy walking distance of two jitney stops, one at Wyoming and New England Road and the other at Ridgewood Rd. and St. Lawrence Avenue. The Washington Park neighborhood is also within close proximity major highways, business centers and Newark International airport.
Situated close to Eagle Rock and South Mountain Reservations, this neighborhood offers nearby recreation areas and hiking trails as well as many other activities. It is also just minutes away from major sports and entertainment venues and is just a short drive from ski resorts and our beautiful New Jersey beaches.
This home is owned by two architects who have made many high end and high tech updates while maintaining the original character of the home.
In the words of its owner:
What makes a house feel like home is the sense that all of the surfaces and materials have been crafted by hand. The floors should have a burnished glow. Door handles should gleam softly, indicating use and time. The walls should be painted with milk paint or a lime wash that give a richness and depth, whether they are white or a rich, saturated color. In short, there should be evidence of the human hand everywhere–that a banister has been rubbed smooth by years of traffic by family and friends. In a home you should want to touch every surface–every service should invite you to explore it. Everywhere there should be a tactile and visible invitation to the history of the home and the people who have lived there.
This is clearly the case with 14 Washington Park!
