27 Southwind Drive Burlington, VT

This is a very comfortable three-story (3 BR, 2.5 Bath) townhouse located adjacent to Lake Champlain, Oakledge Park, and the Burlington Bike Path. Although it is located within the city limits of Burlington, one would never know it. This home is surrounded by woods and the only sounds of consequence are the birds in the backyard. Although this home is only a two-minute walk from the park, it is just far enough away that you do not have to feel like you are part of the sights and sounds of the many events that take place there unless you wish to be. Southwind is a great neighborhood with friendly and quiet neighbors. We have lived here for sixteen years and loved every minute of it. We have worked hard to improve upon the great home that we purchased with renovations and enhancements, listed below, and by adding a 12 ft. x 18 ft. sunroom, which is the center of the living space. This home has an open floor plan that is great for entertaining friends or having the whole family over for the holidays. The backyard, which is totally enclosed by an arborvitae hedge for year-round privacy, is big enough for a host of warm weather activities, but not so large that you have to spend all day mowing the lawn. You can make better use your time by enjoying the sun from the roof deck or swimming in the locked association swimming pool, which is only 100 yards away. The two-car garage has plenty of room for the large work bench and storage, including a second floor attic. Below is a list of just some of the improvements that we have made to our home over the years: - Added a sunroom in 2010. - Replaced all of the original metal frame windows with fiberglass frame windows (same grill style) in 2010; also installed a new sliding glass door (fiberglass exterior, wood interior). - Installed a new, high-efficiency Weil McClain boiler in 2007; the heat exchanger for the boiler was replaced under warranty in 2017. - Mini-split ductless air conditioning installed in master bedroom and third floor family room in 2014. - Electric circuit breaker box replaced and expanded in 2014. - Oak flooring installed in first floor rooms, except for carpeted living room. - Gas fireplace insert installed in living room. - Gas, direct-vent stove installed in sun room. - Installed flagstone patio and walkway in backyard. - Planted arborvitae hedge around the entire perimeter of the backyard, providing year-round privacy. - Created a shrub and flower garden in the backyard. - Supplemented association plantings in front yard with a number of shrubs and perennials. - Installed in-ground, automated sprinkler system in both front and back yards. - Replaced central vacuum in 2015. - Condo association replaced pavement in driveway in 2015.
