National Register Property
One of the many quintessential properties on Main Street, this gothic revival style home with its gingerbread house-like cornices has been a feature of Vergennes history since 1847. Built by Solon Burroughs to model a Scandinavian house, this property is included on the Vermont and National Register of Historic Places. Owned by the same family since 1953 and updated throughout the decades, original features still exist such as wide trim and mouldings and almost 9’ ceilings in the main living spaces. Enter through the spacious front porch into the dining area which offers access to a small office space and laundry room. The kitchen sits beyond and includes a cozy Hearthstone gas heat stove, entry to attached cold storage areas, and access to 2 more enclosed porches with sunrise views. A grand parlor with hardwood flooring sits at the front of the home, and the family room is situated in the middle with the stairway to the 2nd floor. A 1st floor bedroom with en-suite bath complete this level. The 2nd floor offers a versatile layout with 2 bedrooms currently made into a very large room (easy to add wall for separation), another bedroom, ¾ bath, a bonus room, and surprisingly large closets. With 2300+ sq ft, the layout can be flexible to meet your many needs. Plus, a 0.82 acre lot in the heart of the city. Looking to live and work on site? The Res/Limited Business zone allows for conditional uses including office, professional studio, and more. Be sure to view virtual 3D tour!
