Milford's scenic surroundings offer residents an appealing place to call home. Both homeowners and renters can find attractive homes and apartments in a range of different settings. The city has different neighborhoods and plenty of existing homes of all styles, some new and others with a great deal of history.
Milford is located in south central Connecticut on Long Island Sound between New Haven and Bridgeport, 61 miles from New York City and 150 miles from Boston. The city is connected by the major highways of I-95 (Exits 34-40) and the Merritt/Wilbur Cross Parkway (Exits 54-55). Although over 50,000 residents inhabit our small city, it still maintains the feel of a quaint New England Town, with a tree shaded Green (the second largest in New England), and a newly developed 40 slip municipal marina in the harbor which is located in the center of the downtown.
There are over 21,000 dwelling units in Milford including historical homes, victorians, beach cottages and mansions, condominiums, apartments, and starter homes, as well as traditional and executive residences. The demand for homes within Milford has created an active market. Supported by a strong school system, shopping access, and being in the middle of it all, Milford is a great place to call home. Single family units dominate the housing market with the typical cape, colonial or three bedroom raised ranch. Prices run the full gamut from the affordable to executive housing. There are also planned communities where all your daily living needs are taken care of.
There are numerous condominiums on both land and shore settings. They range from new construction to converted school complexes. The apartment rental market is beginning to find its place in Milford. Several large apartment complexes and a number of smaller 4-6 unit apartment buildings can be found inside the city limits. New developments offer renters all the modern conveniences. Condos nestled in historic Downtown Milford offer spectacular views of the Harbor from their balcony and a walk to the train station, fine dining, and quaint shops.
Short term rentals are the perfect solution for your relocation needs. Relax in a spacious studio, one bedroom or two bedroom suites with fully equipped kitchens, and separate living areas. A daily hot breakfast buffet is included by many. Milford is also an ideal location for adult children with elderly parents. A large number of quality long-term care facilities are located in or near Milford.
Further, there is the option of renting a beach house for a vacation in the summer or to live in over the winter. Whether you are looking for a short term corporate or a residential rental, we have members who can meet your needs.
The city's wide range of shopping, dining, and social events provide numerous opportunities for everyone to enjoy, from young people and families to today's active seniors.
