The main goal for our Monday "Home of the Week" features here on is to highlight as many of coastal Delaware's premier properties as we possibly can, but also to "spread the love," if you will, throughout the region.

With that in mind, we today head to the coastal Delaware town named for English poet John Milton, and this exquisite retreat resting on nearly two acres adjacent to the sprawling Redden State Forest.

This home and property has a little bit of everything and is located in the heart of the coastal region, within just a short drive of not only the Delaware and Maryland beaches and historic Milton, but also Delaware's capital region in and around Dover.

We're going to tell you all about this featured property, located at 16887 Sand Hill Road in Milton, in just a moment. But first here's Oldfather Group founder and CEO Dustin Oldfather with a 30-second video preview of this coastal gem.

Okay, so let's tell you all about this fabulous property near Milton. First, let's take a look at a couple exterior shots of the property, then we'll move right into our expanded narrative of 16887 Sand Hill Road.

Nearly two acres of private seclusion are the backdrop for this classic coastal retreat, located just a few short miles from the beach near the peaceful and historic community of Milton.

Adjacent to the sprawling Redden State Forest, this three bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home is more than 2,700-square-feet and boasts an open floor plan and many great features, including an exquisite outdoor entertainment area in the back yard.

The 50-foot deck is indeed a perfect spot for outdoor entertaining, with plenty of room for a barbecue grill, patio and deck furniture and much more. Portions of the deck have even been reinforced in preparation for a hot tub or jacuzzi, making this area even more appealing for widespread use during coastal Delaware’s warm weather season.

Gleaming hardwood flooring is prevalent throughout the home, which flows seamlessly from room to room. Features include the formal living room, the spacious chef’s kitchen with custom cherry cabinetry, double wall ovens and wine cooler, the breakfast room, the formal dining room and the centralized great room.

The owner’s suite offers a 16-foot walk-in closet and a custom bathroom, featuring a double vanity, a whirlpool tub and an oversized shower. There’s also a “retreat” located off the master bedroom, with a sitting area and lots of space designed for comfort and ease of use.

Other features of this custom built home and property are a large circular driveway with plenty of space for both cars and recreational vehicles, a walk-up floored attic with an abundance of additional storage space and a tree-lined back yard with plenty of privacy.
