Milton Homes For Sale

Named for the famous English poet John Milton, the charming community of Milton lies at the head of the Broadkill River and is considered part of “coastal Delaware” due to its proximity to the state’s beach resorts. First settled in 1672 by—you guessed it—the English, Milton real estate bustles with local history, with nearly 200 structures on the National Register of Historic Places. If you’re looking for a new home that’s close to the beach, but offers quiet and peaceful surroundings, Milton homes for sale may be just what you’re looking for. From Colonial revivals to contemporary homes, the sheer variety of coastal and traditional styles makes it easy to find a property that's perfect for all your needs, whether that includes a lot of space to stretch out in or just a little.

Discover Milton Homes For Sale

Without a doubt, Milton homes for sale have a lot of the coastal character you'd expect from a beachy resort town. From brand new builds to homes with origins in the nineteenth century, the terrific variety of attractive single-family homes you'll find here come in a range of styles—like carriage houses, Salt Boxes, Colonial Revivals, Ranches, and beyond. Depending on your needs, you'll find homes ranging between 900 and more than 6,000 square feet, with some on generous acreages that are perfect for outdoor features or just a little bit of serenity. Though you can certainly find homes here in the seven figures, many elegant, newer homes are available starting around $200,000. Some of the attractive features you'll find in these newer homes include:

  • Granite countertops
  • Stainless steel appliances
  • Formal dining rooms
  • Tankless water heaters
  • Gas fireplaces

Though many residents of Milton choose to live in this friendly community throughout the year, the proximity of Milton real estate to beachy resorts often inspires careful landscaping and the addition of exterior features like patios and screen porches. In addition, the town has become home to a number of planned communities that offer private amenities, like swimming pools and community centers, for owners looking for a bit more to do.

 

Amenities in Milton Real Estate

Delaware coastOnce known as one of the top holly wreath producers in the United States, Milton has long stood for what historians like to call the “Three Bs.” But while boats (shipbuilding), buttons (button factories), and beans (at the Draper King Cole plant) dominated Milton during past generations, today the town is more like taking a leisurely stroll through a Norman Rockwell painting. The downtown area is divided by the Broadkill River and features several historic buildings, most significantly the grand ole’ Milton Theater, which still hosts many live events throughout the year. Downtown also features the original location of King’s Ice Cream, as well as the Lydia Black Cannon Museum and the Milton Public Library.

Heading north out of town, residents of Milton real estate run into what is today the town’s biggest tourist attraction: the Dogfish Head Brewery. The brewery and its Steampunk Treehouse are big draws to tiny Milton, and with good reason—they're definitely one-of-a-kind! If you haven’t taken a tour of the brewery, it’s one of the best you’ll find anywhere, led by knowledgeable and fun tour guides and ending with a taste of several of the brewery’s unique concoctions.

During the warm weather months, Milton also boasts outdoor concerts in Memorial Park and is very close to both the Delaware beach resorts of Lewes and Rehoboth Beach, as well as Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge. And, as with anywhere in coastal Delaware, locally owned or managed restaurants are aplenty. Some great dining experiences to check out include Irish Eyes, Po’ Boys, Vintage Pasta, and Modern Mixture Too. Oh, and don’t forget to check out Milton every year for the region’s best Saint Patrick’s Day Parade, which meanders through the heart of the historic district.
