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 Merrit/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.
21,000 dwelling units consisting of starter homes, some from colonial times, Victorian,
beach cottages and mansions, condominiums, apartments, traditional and executive
residences are located here. The demand for homes within Milford has created an
