WHAT DO THE OWNERS HAVE TO SAY?
Dear Future Homeowner,
We moved into 450 Hillside in the summer of 2014, and had no idea at the time how lucky we were. We are surrounded by a fantastic community of neighbors and friends, a mix of young families, and people who have been on the block for decades. Everyone comes together many times a year for block parties, barbecues, and a glass of wine. The community feeling as you walk down the tree-lined street is a suburban dream.
The location, close to two trains stations and downtown (a flat walk!) is incredible. In the summer we walk to the community pool and gather with neighbors and friends to enjoy music and movies on Flood’s Hill. In the winter, the same hill is a sledding destination. In spring, tennis, soccer, and baseball fields are all a 10 minute walk away.
The home itself has been updated since we took ownership, but we took great care to maintain its charm. It features original moldings, a wood burning fireplace, spacious bedrooms, and a custom master bath with a six foot soaking tub. We love dance parties in the large living room, views of our neighbors’ gorgeous gardens from upstairs, and the patio out back, which is perfect for dinner or cocktails while watching kids play.
We hope you love this home as much as we do and that it brings you health and happiness too.
