Maitlands sits beside Stoke on the northern side and is its closest suburb and borders Nayland to the West, Annesbrook to the North West and Enner Glynn to the North.
Made up jointly flat land, gentle sloping and steeper slopes many of this suburbs home sites offer some of the best outlooks and views in Stoke. [as here 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 in photos taken from home]
Example outlook below.
Most of the suburbs area is traditional housing but there are a few pockets of newer builds, more so on the upper slopes to the East.
The Independent Middle School is located with in this suburb. (now closed down)
There are no shops in the suburb, but bordering and about a 5 minute walk away are the Stoke main shops, Countdown & New World supermarkets, and the just upgraded Stoke Medical Centre.
To the north west is the Black Cat dairy, along with a hairdresser and local Fish & Chip shop.
Suburban Bus line’s main service linking Nelson -Tahunanui – Stoke – Richmond travels through the area with a regular scheduled service. Additionally four times a day Mon-Fri the same bus company operates what it calls the “Stoke Eastern Loop“, and the schedule calls for the bus to travel via Songer St in Stoke into The Ridgeway and then Marsden Rd joining up with the main serviced road in Main Rd Stoke.
Public Transportation Link
There are no eating establishments sited in Maitlands, but within a 5-7 minute drive you have a choice of a dozen or more, and an approx. 10-12 minute drive would place you in town or Richmond with a much wider range of styles and prices.
