Residential Home

Set on one of Burlington's most beloved streets, this gracious Hill Section Brick & Marble Style Victorian home is sited on a beautiful landscaped west facing lot. 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 with 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 large family room, two bedrooms with lake views, bath & small kitchen was perfect for the owners two teenage boys. It's great for guests. The 720 sq. studio apartment off the rear of the building is a smart design. This permitted apartment has private entry, bedroom, full bath & is a great source of income. "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".
