Property Description

Incredible historic Greek Revival home on an oversized lot in Burlington's desirable Hill Section. This home was the birthplace of John Dewey, philosopher & pioneer of modern education. The property balances its accessible location with easy access off Jackson Court. A large patio, beautiful landscaping and level lawn is surrounded by hedges for privacy. Treasure the beautiful natural woodwork and architectural details throughout the home. The large eat-in kitchen blends old and new with large island, two ovens and commercial exhaust hood, walk-in pantry, plus a cozy casual dining area by the wood stove. Adjacent is the formal dining room with corner cupboard, which also has wall to wall built-ins making for very flexible use! The formal living room with access to the wraparound porch enjoys Lake Champlain and Adirondack mountain views in the distance. Off the foyer, a family room with windows on three walls and fireplace also makes a great 1st floor office. Upstairs, the master suite boasts a beautiful fireplace & walk-in closet. There are four more bedrooms, including an ensuite guest room. Close to downtown and a quick commute to University of Vermont and Medical Center. These owners have done many updates and improvements over the years- always sensitive to the original character and charm of this home. Be the next caretaker of this historic home.
