The Hubbard-Kesby House
A unique opportunity to own a piece of Milford history. The Hubbard-Kesby home is a charming 19th century farmhouse and one of the earliest residences in Milford. Located on three wooded acres, the home sits back from the road and features classic Greek Revival architectural details. A wraparound porch graces the north and west sides of the house. Original wide plank flooring and period details can be seen throughout the home, which has been thoughtfully restored and updated. The first floor includes a large, light-filled living room with a soapstone wood stove, an eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a custom-built screened-in porch off the kitchen for summer entertaining, dining room, laundry room, a full bath with clawfoot tub, and a bedroom/study. Two separate staircases lead to the second floor with 3 bedrooms and a full bath with shower and soaking tub. The lot includes a 2-car detached garage, perennial beds, a secret garden behind an old stone barn foundation, and a brook at the back of the property. The Huron river and miles of equestrian, hike and bike trails through Kensington metropark are a few steps away. The home is nestled in a peaceful country setting, yet only a couple of miles from the shops and restaurants in the Village of Milford and offers easy access to I-96.
