                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: Originally from the Midwest - a New Yorker of 30 years!

                  Why the Owner Chose Milford:
                  The proximity to New York is so convenient and easy to get to. The property feels so private - you feel as though you are in the middle of the country, yet you are only a 10 minute walk into the middle of the town of Milford PA. The community is quaint, with good shops, good dining and minimum amount of tourists. Go the Milford Diner for some pancakes in morning and hob-nob with the locals. The area has all the amenities to go out or stay at home!
