Milton Real Estate

Milton is located between the Neponset River and the Blue Hills just 10 miles south of Boston by car. At 13.3 square miles with 27,000 residents, Milton is a densely populated South Shore suburb. Despite its convenient location and growing population, Milton still has a bucolic feel. Commercial development is limited and pristine estates are interspersed with protected land and parks. Much of the community’s appeal stems from its safe neighborhoods, friendly residents and top-ranked schools — both public and private. Not surprisingly, Money Magazine has repeatedly included Milton on its annual list of “Best Places to Live” in the United States. Given its historic past, Milton still retains many 19th century country homes and estates as well as early 19th century workers’ housing. Field stone walls forming property boundaries are a fixture on many lots. Many notable homes are on the Historic Register with the Milton Historical Commission creating six different historic districts within the town: Milton Center, Scotts Woods, Brush Hill, Milton Hill, Railway Village, and Milton Cemetery.  Read more about Milton real estate.

More About Milton Real Estate

Milton Location

Milton’s easy commute times to Boston by car and via the Red Line on the MBTA and commuter rail are a major part of its draw. In fact, Milton maintains four stops along the Mattapan-Ashmont Red Line Trolley. The community is bordered by Boston neighborhoods Dorchester and Mattapan to the north; Hyde Park (Boston) to the west; Quincy to the east and south; Randolph to the south; and Canton to the west. Milton is also easily accessed from I-93 and U.S. Route 1 as well as Route 3, which loop around the town near the southern and eastern borders.

Milton Recreation

Milton offers an abundance of activities for families. The Blue Hills Reservation, a 7,000-acre state park, is tops on many locals’ list. The Reservation stretches from Quincy to Dedham and from Milton to Randolph and houses 16 historic structures as well as a variety of trails and natural landscapes. The top of the hills offer sweeping views of the Boston cityscapes. The Blue Hill Observatory is also in the park and is the oldest continually operated weather observatory in the U.S. Another park attraction is Houghton’s Pond, which was formed 10,000 years ago from receding glaciers. The 24-acre pond is up to 42 feet deep in some areas providing numerous opportunities for swimming, fishing, and picnicking along its scenic shores. The Neponset River Reservation is another place to enjoy views of the river and natural beauty of many protected areas.

Milton History

The Puritans settled Milton as part of Dorchester in the 1630s with many of the early Puritan families of Milton going on to take influential roles in the creation of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Milton’s roots are grounded in an agrarian culture and variety of industries that sprang up along the Neponset River. In the 18th century Milton served as the site of the first chocolate factory in New England while expanding as an industrial area. The town was home to America’s first piano factory as well as helping to originate the term “cracker” for biscuits baked at Bent’s Cookie Factory. These concoctions made of flour and water were designed so they would not deteriorate during long sea voyages from the port of Boston. The “crackling” noise occurred during the baking process, giving birth to the name. Today Milton claims many notable residents — the town was President George H.W. Bush’s birthplace and home to former Governor Deval Patrick as well as being the town of record for many New England athletes, actors, authors, and statesmen.
