Milton-based brokerage owner at your service. Milton is a smallish bedroom community about nine miles south of Boston. It has a wide range of housing from lower-priced single families and multifamilies on the Mattapan side, to new high-end condos on the river, to stately $1,000,000+ homes on Milton Hill. Where you should look depends on your finances. You are going to need $800,000+ for Milton Hill, Columbines, Indian Cliffs and the like. There are $400,000 - $700,000 offerings in some more densely packed, but nice, neighborhoods around Kelly Field and Cunningham Park. Milton has a trolley service going directly to a new Ashmont Station, with parking, and the drive into Boston during drive time is as short as 15 minutes before 7 AM to 30-40 minutes during drivetime. Milton is a lovely town to live in. Rated recently as the 7th best town in America by Money Magazine! money.cnn.com/magazines/moneymag/bplive/2007/snapshots/PL2541725.html
