"A quaint, rarefied village"

The village of Millbrook, NY sits at the center of the town of Washington in Dutchess County. It’s a favorite of many New York-based celebrities, who either live here full-time or part-time. Located in the more rural, undeveloped eastern part of the county, Millbrook is very small, with less than two square miles of land and a population of 1,500.

Settled by the Quakers, the village still retains its 19th century feel. It’s known for its availability of antiques; the Millbrook Antique Mall and Millbrook Antique Center draw both locals and visitors. Additional shops and restaurants line Franklin Avenue, the main road bisecting the town. One of the Hudson Valley’s most well-known wineries, Millbrook Winery, is located here as well, offering tastings, live music and other events.

Millbrook is ninety minutes from New York City. While there is no direct Metro-North service, both the Poughkeepsie and Dover Plains train stations are about twenty-five minutes away.

The village is served by the Millbrook Central School District, with approximately 1,200 students who hail from Millbrook and surrounding areas. There are two elementary schools, Alden Place and Elm Drive, as well as Millbrook Middle School and Millbrook High School. Overall, the schools perform very well, with scores at or above the state median on standardized assessments and Regents exams.

Millbrook is an upscale town and its recreation offerings fit the mold. The Millbrook Golf and Tennis Club, founded in 1900, is a private organization with a nine-hole course. Horseback riding is also very popular, as evidenced by the availability of equestrian and hunt clubs in and around the town. There are some small parks, primarily the Millbrook Tribute Garden and the Innisfree Garden, in the village as well.

Homes are expensive. The largest variety of inventory can be found around the million-dollar range. There are some attractive, well-maintained homes at more moderate prices, and there are some very inexpensive homes, though those tend to be in need of work.
