There is a distinct community feel here, and the promise of relaxed, easy living. Most neighbors know each other, and that offers a comfortable sense of belonging that many new residents find appealing. Millbrook is home to lovely outdoor spaces and gardens, historic architecture, and the convenience of living near the Wassaic train station, which provides easy access to large metro areas. 

 

Millbrook’s rolling countrysides provide a beautiful backdrop for its quiet and affluent residential communities, where top-dollar residences in a variety of architectural styles are nestled atop spacious lots and tree-lined streets.
