UNDER CONTRACT: If you dream of lazy summer days relaxing near your own brook-fed pond, or hiking historic tree-lined trails overlooking your own Sparta home, 7 Milton Road: is ready to make your dream a reality!
Nature surrounds this 1st-time offering, custom 5BR, 2-bathroom home on 6.46 pristine acres. As you enter, you’ll cross a bridge over a bubbling brook streaming down the mountain and feeding past a pretty gazebo into the private, brook trout-stocked pond--jump in a canoe and catch dinner! Towering red spruce and natural rock formations surround the property, providing beauty and privacy. Plentiful cords of wood mean you’ll be cozying up around a crackling fireplace after sledding down the property’s surrounding hills or ice-skating on the pond when winter comes. The pump house efficiently provides water from the pond for lawn care and other outside uses.
Lovingly maintained by the original owner, the house features a lemonade front porch, very private back deck, and hardwood floors as shown and under carpeting in the living room, dining room and three bedrooms. A basement rec room completes your dream home.
This home lies just 2 miles from Sparta's town center, meaning dining and entertainment options abound, and you'll be just minutes from the route 15 commuting corridor. New York City is only a little over an hour away by car. NYC Bus is available from Sparta. Newark Airport and the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania average about an hour's drive as well. And don't forget the nearest ski slopes and water parks are only 20-30 minutes away in Vernon!
Like hiking? Just 5 minutes away, the 1400-acre Sparta Mountain Wildlife Management area offers numerous trails for all levels of hiking, as well as Ryker Lake for kayaking, fishing and birding. Nearby Kittatinny Valley State Park boasts 5.2 miles of hiking trails with views of glacial lakes, limestone outcroppings and former railroads. Additionally, Kittatinny's Lake Aeroflex and Gardner's Pond are excellent for fishing and boating.
Sparta's fantastic school system provides wonderful educational opportunities. Sparta Middle School and Sparta High School lie a mere 10-minute drive away. As one of 2018's top 100 safest towns in America (according to Safewise), Sparta offers peace of mind as well.
