Milford house description

The Water House is the ultimate getaway for nature lovers. Our totally secluded two bedroom house sits on 1,200 private, wooded acres next to 25,000 acres of State Lands and yet is less than 5 minutes to the charming town of Milford.

The enchantment starts when you drive ½ mile down the long driveway and walk over an old-fashioned wooden foot bridge to the Frank Lloyd Wright-style house, nestled right on the Sawkill stream, with the pine forest behind.

You will have total privacy in this incredibly comfortable, all-season vacation home. The house is very spacious, with a huge living/dining area, cathedral ceiling w/wooden beams, hardwood floors, and knotty pine walls. The kitchen is fully equipped. There are 2 bedrooms: the master bedroom has a king-size bed w/ private bathroom and private entrance, and the other bedroom has a full-size bed w/ a twin, and a private bath. There is also a comfortable, built-in daybed in the living room. A crib is available as well.

The large, furnished screen porch is the place to be in the summer, where the view is breathtaking. A beaver meadow sits in the middle of the wide stream, with the water flowing swiftly past the house. There is a grill and a firepit on a little peninsula by the stream, where you can sit by the fire at night. Hiking is plentiful on the property, and you can kayak and canoe right from the banks of the stream.

In the fall and winter, you will want to move inside to the cozy, romantic stone fireplace. In every season, the huge picture windows overlooking the stream will keep you connected to nature and the abundant wildlife that lives on the stream. This is a great place to introduce your kids to camping and to stream and forest ecology.

Writers and artists looking for total privacy and the tranquility of nature and flowing water will find it here.

This charming property is only 4 miles from Milford, PA. which Atlantic Magazine once called 'The prettiest county seat in America'.

3/4 of the quaint town of Milford is a National Historic District featuring Galleries, Antiques, Coffee Shops, Restaurants, Boutiques and Specialty Shopping.
Milford is adjacent to the 70,000 acre Delaware Water Gap National Park and the federally-protected Upper Delaware Wildlife and Scenic River offering a wide array of river activities.
