On the Market in the Poconos: Lakefront Contemporary Tudor in Milford
Had this house been built 60 years earlier, it might have looked more palatial and baronial than it does. But this more modern house has some mighty impressive contemporary spaces.
The Tudor Revival house enjoyed a golden age in America from roughly 1900 to 1940, after which the style fell out of favor as ranchers, Cape Cods, split-levels and more contemporary modern designs dominated.
Which makes this Milford lakefront Tudor house for sale something of an anomaly. For starters, it isn’t really a Tudor through and through. Instead, it’s a striking contemporary house in Tudor drag.
But it does share something with those golden-age Tudor houses, namely, a room with a soaring high ceiling. That room here is the living room, located to the right of the equally soaring two-story foyer.
This room would have a huge fireplace in one of those grand old Tudors. This one doesn’t, but it does have a built-in bookcase and plenty of windows that let you marvel at its wooded setting.
You can marvel even more in the room that does have a fireplace: the spacious family room, to the left of the foyer.
Attached to it is a screened porch that lets you take in the fresh air. It also has a high ceiling.
The kitchen and dining area do not, but they do have clean lines, modern appliances, plenty of counter space, a tile floor and a wood-burning stove.
All three of the bedrooms upstairs offer views of the lake behind this house. The primary one has a balcony that lets you take your morning coffee in privacy while looking out on the lake.
Its bathroom’s steam shower is definitely a period piece with its space-capsule design, but the marble-floored bathroom as a whole is nicely outfitted.
Behind the main floor, an expansive deck wraps around one side of the house and has steps leading down to an ample backyard.
At the other end of the backyard is a new dock protruding into Log Tavern Pond, one of many pristine glacial lakes in this part of the Poconos.
Although this house has a Milford mailing address, it’s actually located a little ways from the town. Dingman Township lies in the more remote part of the Poconos, close to Interstate 84.
That makes this Milford lakefront Tudor house for sale perfect if you’re looking for a secluded retreat that still has all the modern conveniences. Even if they’re wrapped up in a medieval English package.
