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 is 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 a 1 1/2 drive or train ride on Metro North or Amtrak.
Why the Owner Chose Milton, NY, USA:
Because it is like nothing we have ever seen!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Be it in winter,spring,summer or Fall-- magnificent sunrises; the colors the moon casts over the river…and anticipating what beauty the next day brings: birds,(especially now that the 'eagles' are back) wildlife, boats and barges along the river: Even rain brings the most unusual rainbows!
