This $1.6 million eclectic Milford mansion has koi ponds, pergolas, and apple trees — let’s take a tour


Are you an artist? A novelist? An eccentric and elusive Hollywood star who was in that movie about that other eccentric and elusive Hollywood star? No, we're not talking urinating in jars eccentric more Grey Gardens minus the cats and raccoons. What we're getting at is that this $1.6 million mansion in Milford is the perfect place for a creative type  who is desperate to ditch their over-priced big city loft in favor of a romantic hideaway to store existential thoughts and vintage kimonos.

Boasting five bedrooms and six bathrooms, this 5,185 square-foot home is situated on nine private acres complete with a gazebo, two koi ponds, pergolas, a brick patio with a built-in barbecue.  The home, which can be found by following the 800-foot driveway, has a 4,830 square-foot pole barn and the former helicopter hanger has transformed into a loft apartment with two additional full baths.

But back to the main house, because that's where the magic is.

The home features the following: Pewabic tiled front porch, a massive master suite with his and hers baths and dressing rooms, a master bath with heated floors and a steam shower, a formal living room, a dining room and a kitchen with granite island, a family room that overlooks the stunning grounds complete with a wood-burning fireplace, and what the listing describes as being a “swanky” finished basement with a wine cellar, lounge, full bar with a brass foot rail, and an eight-person dry sauna.

The magic extends onto the surrounding grounds, which has BSGE. (That's Big Secret Garden Energy). So, grab your quill and ink (and, let's be honest, a nice glass of breakfast whiskey) — your artist retreat awaits.
