Owners' Perspective: Why we love 4867 Westfield Dr

Why We Love Living at 4867 Westfield Drive…
Driving into Academy Hill 16 years ago when we came to Syracuse to find the next place we would call home, I was reminded of my childhood neighborhood growing up – lots of houses, big yards, room to run and snow forts! We came looking in the dead of a Syracuse winter and had to drive around the hockey games being played in the streets, snow ball fights from opposite yards and kids on their way to sled at the elementary school.
We came from a very small Cape in Rhode Island and were immediately drawn to the spacious rooms, huge kitchen, private master bath and then THE BASEMENT! So much room for our family of four – we were sold. The house had space and light but a wonderfully cozy quality as well.
As we settled in we discovered the amazing convenience of living behind the elementary and middle school with all the playing fields and play grounds you could imagine – we loved the quiet of our dead end street but also the friendly flow of kids, runners, dog walkers and yes, even an unicyclist. Hot air balloons often use the massive fields behind us to land engaging all the kids to help roll up the colorful balloons.
As we continued to develop our own little backyard oasis the inherent privacy of our yard provided the perfect retreat for solitude, but chats over the fence with great neighbors on all sides reminded us of what we really enjoyed about Academy Hill – the people.
From the neighborhood book club to the annual neighborhood garage sale, from the first signs of spring when the High School lacrosse teams runs by on their way to the fields to practice, to the attentive Village curbside pickup of yard waste – this has been an awesome place to call home. The Fayetteville – Manlius schools have been amazing and prepared our children so well for their college careers and beyond. The opportunities in theater, art, sports and academia are second to none. After moving for jobs every two years, we vowed we would get our kids from elementary through high school graduation from one school system. We’ve accomplished our goal and only due to a new career opportunity are we leaving Manlius.
We loved living at 4867 Westfield Drive and hope that the next owner will enjoy warm winter fires in the family room, laughter over shared meals and all the joys and pleasures our family has.
