Property description

Our dream house sits high in the mountains that rise on both sides of the Delaware River and the Delaware Water Gap National Park. It was originally built in 1790 as a one-room farm of which the original fireplace still sits in the middle of our living room, surrounded by hand-hewn beams and posts. Since then rooms have been added and the last piece, 3000 sq. ft, was built by us in 2006. The main floor is all open plan with a living area, an open kitchen with stainless steel appliances and entry hall in the new part and a dining room and living room in the old part. Four French doors and one large folding door open up to the wrap around porch that overlooks the Vandermark stream. The home is well equipped and furnished since it is our home for part of the year. Upstairs are four bedrooms. The master bedroom has a large terrace and his and hers marble bathrooms. Her bathroom has a greenhouse double bath with a view to the stars. The house sits back from a quiet road and is surrounded by 10 private acres, which adjoin national forest in the back of the property. It has been in published in architecture and design publications. The town of Milford is 5 minutes down the hill and is known for Grey Towers and other historic buildings, the Hotel Fauchere with two gourmet restaurants, the Waterwheel Cafe and the Dimmick Inn. Milford sits in the Delaware Water Gap National park, with a beach on the Delaware River, Waterfalls and miles of trails for walking, horse riding and cross country biking. Canoes and rafts can be rented nearby, and we have a kayak and a canoe in the barn. The town has many antique and other shops like bike rentals, sporting gear, trendy home stuff and fashion. See the website of the Hotel Fauchere for excellent videos of the area! Milford is only 90 minutes or 80 miles from New York City and is a popular weekend escape destination for New Yorkers but it has not been discovered in a way that has spoiled the town. The natural beauty of the Upper Delaware is perfect for getaways during all seasons. In the summer there are numerous outdoor sports and activities, in the fall the foliage is as good if not better than New England, the winter is great for skiing with many nearby (30 mins) ski resorts, the spring is great for weekend getaways from nearby cities The local train station is Port Jervis and is 20 minutes away. The nearest airport is Newburgh, serviced by Jetblue.
