Property Description

Much admired 1896 Historic Burlington Hill Section Brick & Marble Style Victorian home located on one of Burlington's most desirable streets. The house has served this family well since the floor plan is smart & can flex as families grow or shrink! Friends and family gather in the warm, bustling new kitchen, lounging on sofas or propping up the central island, with a glass of wine while the chef does their magic. With 10 ft ceilings, nicely scaled rooms & period architectural detail, the first floor offers elegant formal spaces as well as a cozy living room w/fireplace. A breathtaking entry with cherry & oak grand staircase leads to the stunning landing with floor to ceiling 19th century Tiffany windows. The Master suite boasts a copper soaking tub, gas fireplace, curved turret bedroom & custom walk in dressing room/closet (this room was once a bedroom). A generous bedroom, tiled bath with claw foot soaking tub & stall shower, laundry room & back staircase complete the second floor. The third floor with a family room, two bedrooms, bath & small kitchen was perfect for the owners two teenage boys-great for guests. This home has been lovingly restored and meticulously maintained by the current owners. "It’s a beautiful home, but more importantly, it’s alive, living and breathing with us, meeting our needs before we even know we have them". Ideally located within walking distance to downtown Burlington and Lake Champlain. Legal apartment over the garage-$24,000 annual income
