September 01, 2017 - Northern New England

Milford, NH The tight rental market in southern N.H. is about to get a boost as Red Oak Apartment Homes completes the Ridge at Eastern Trails project. The project includes 124 units in apartment buildings and townhouses and represents the largest new residential construction project in Milford in two decades. 

Phase I includes two buildings with 72 apartments, many of which were available starting August 15. As one of the largest residential property management companies in the state, Red Oak does not require security deposits, offers flexible, fixed-cost leases from six to 23 months in duration, and will be offering two $10,000 giveaways to residents of the first two buildings once the units have been rented.

Amenities include stainless steel Energy Star kitchen appliances, full-size washers and dryers, upgraded flooring and countertops, central heat and air conditioning, and elevators. The studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments range in size from 520 s/f to 1,360 s/f. The two and three-bedroom apartments have two full baths and breakfast bars, and all of the apartments are pet friendly for cats and dogs up to 25 pounds. 

The location features a dog park, tennis courts, a playground and sidewalks, and residents can use the outdoor pool located at a sister property five minutes away. 

“We are confident these new residential options will be very attractive to those looking to rent in the Milford area, enjoy higher end amenities and the flexibility we offer to our residents in terms of variable lease lengths and no security deposits,” said Ronald Dupont, president of Red Oak. “Red Oak chose Milford for our first housing construction project because we wanted to invest in the region and design and build housing with the types of amenities that will attract people who also want to call Milford home.” 

The project, which is being managed by Eckman Construction, will include 128,000 s/f of total construction. It is being completed in two phases and will include 108 apartment units and 16  two and three-bedroom townhouses. The project architect is Dennis Mires, PA, from The Architects of Manchester and the civil engineer is Keach-Nordstrom Associates of Bedford.
