The entire house has been renovated and modernized with an emphasis on bright and sunny rooms that offer spectacular views of the river.

Sit back and enjoy the peaceful surroundings, cocktails on the deck, watch the boats go by, wake up early and see a spectacular sunrise directly over the river, or fall asleep to a full moon reflecting into the river, bird watch.
Other than the scenic Hudson River, apple orchids, beautiful flowering trees and bushes surround the property making each season exciting and colorful.

History of 'The Hudson Valley': It is one of the most historic places in the USA. The area is famous for being the first wine-producing region in the country, while bountiful farms have been here for centuries. The scenery is so remarkable it inspired the first arts movement in the U.S, the Hudson River School. These 1800's artists/naturalists-on-canvas would not be surprised to learn that 20th century residents were crusaders in saving the Hudson Valley landscape at Storm King Mountain where the Mountain where the country's environmental movement was born.
Ramble over forts from the Revolutionary War, and see where Washington lived for most of it. The area was so strategic for defense, America's first military academy, West Point, was established here in1802. 100 years later, Great Estates were built by the Vanderbilts, Roosevelts and Rockefellers.
Excursions: LOCALLY; Enjoy day trips to amazing places like West Point Military Academy, Boscobel, Shawangunk Wine Trail, Mohonk Mountain Preserve, the village of Millbrook, the village of Woodstock, the village of Rhinebeck, Thomas Cole National Historic Site, Olana- home of the famed Hudson River Art movement, the Rockefeller and Vanderbilt estates, the Culinary Institute of America and….

IF you want to explore further into New York City, take a 90 minute train ride along the Hudson, into Grand Central Station or drive in, see a Broadway play, visit the many famous Art, and History Museums, or shop to your heart's desire.
Have dinner or snack at the Grand Central station, (which feels like is a small city within NYC.) and then take the train home.
It's all here..

          Owner info

          About the owner: My husband and I are both artists who lived and worked in the creative fields in Manhattan for thirty years. We grew up in Rhode Island, where the ocean was never far away, so when we stumbled upon Milton and the Hudson Valley; we were mesmerized by the river views, the country landscape, and surrounding homes. We dropped everything and moved here. The best part is that we did not have to give up all that New York City has to offer as it is an easy day trip by train or car.

          Why the Owner Chose Milton:
          Because it is like nothing we have ever seen!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The magnificent sunrises; the colors the moon casts over the river…and anticipating what beauty the next day brings: birds, wildlife, boats and barges going along the river: be it in winter,spring,summer or fall!
