Walkability in Milton, Delaware

Do you want to live where you can walk to town? Sounds like a simple request but it is not always easy to find a home in Coastal Delaware where you don’t need your car daily. One town that is walkable is Milton, Delaware. Let’s take an example:

Chestnut, Chambers 003

206 Chestnut Street

This home at 206 Chestnut Street is for sale in the heart of the Historic District. Over the years it has been updated and added onto, but the charm and exterior look of the home was preserved. A first floor bedroom and bath was added which is very unusual in many historic homes. The garage was just built 4 years ago and a screened porch was added.

Take the Virtual Tour to appreciate the charm of this in-town home.

What is the Walk Score of 206 Chestnut Street?

According to walkscore.com the walk score is 68. When I looked at the list of restaurants, shops, parks and other businesses, I noticed that many businesses I frequent are not yet listed so I believe the score should be higher. From here you can walk to the:

Milton Public Library – Delaware does libraries well and the library in Milton is one of the best small town libraries in the State

Milton Memorial Park – enjoy fishing, boating, and concerts during the summer season

Irish Eyes – where you can sit on the patio overlooking the park

The Vintage Café – one of my favorite places for lunch with friends

Salon Milton – owned by John Potocki, this salon is a gathering place and John is the unofficial Ambassador for the town of Milton.

I could go on, but if you are thinking of moving to Coastal Delaware, you can live in town and enjoy the simple life.
