For this week's Oldfather Group "Home of the Week" feature, we head to the historic town of Milton to show you a spacious coastal home nestled in the private community of Paynters Mill.

This home has many upgrades and is perfectly located close to downtown Milton, as well as just a short drive away from southern Delaware's most popular coastal communities.

But before we tell you all about it, a quick reminder if you live in or plan on visiting coastal Delaware in the next few days. Don't forget that this weekend features the annual three-day Sea Witch Halloween & Fiddler's Festival here in the "Nation's Summer Capital."

It's Rehoboth's biggest party of the year and we'll be blogging about it later this week, both in our popular "Weekender" series, as well as a special entry on Friday detailing the history of this fantastic local event.

But that's this weekend! For now, let's tell you all about this gracious coastal home in Milton.

Here's our Chief Buyer Consultant Adam Linder to tell you more about this beautiful coastal property, located at 16238 John Rowland Trail in Milton.

Let's begin by whetting your whistle, so to speak, with a few exterior shots of this elegant coastal home. Then we'll delve right into our expanded narrative of 16238 John Rowland Trail.

This elegant home nestled in the welcoming community of Paynters Mill is the perfect coastal oasis for the right family, boasting several upgrades and resting not only close to downtown Milton, but also within just a short drive to both Lewes and Rehoboth Beach.

Featuring four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms over 3,200-square-feet of customized living space, this sprawling home is perfect for a big family that really wants to live near the beach and experience Delaware’s coastal region.

As soon as you walk in the front door, you’re greeted by room after room of gleaming hardwood floors that guide you throughout the first floor of this spacious home and to the first-level owner’s suite, complete with walk-in closet, spa bath, crown molding and great views.

While the home boasts two levels of living space, it can easily be converted to one level only during the cold winter months to save on heating bills, if so desired.

The rest of the first level is highlighted by a spacious great room with elegant gas fireplace, which leads to the relaxing screened porch and backyard paver patio, perfect for entertaining during the coastal region’s warm weather season.

Other features of the home’s main level include a formal dining room with custom chandelier and a kitchen with center island, pantry and quartz countertops.

Upstairs features include a bonus living area, a guest suite with full bathroom and plenty of extra storage space.
