45 Howard Street Burlington, VT

A charming, cozy Queen Anne Cottage (1894) In the Five Sisters neighborhood in Burlington’s south side. This home resides in the most highly sought-after neighborhood in Burlington because it is walkable to downtown, the University of Vermont Medical Center, the Arts area, and the Burlington Bike Path.

The Five Sisters neighborhood is recognized as an historic
neighborhood, but this house is not designated as such to retain owner control. This gem has been modernized inside, with an open concept floor plan, but has retained the original historic exterior design.

The home has 1,191 square feet of livable space with the first floor consist of a front porch, an office/study room, a living room with dining area, modernized kitchen, full bathroom, and back porch.

The second-floor staircase comes from the parlor into a primary
bedroom, guest room, and a full bathroom. The primary bedroom has cherry custom built in dressers that have inlaid images of Mount Mansfield and Camel’s Hump that augments the original wood floors.

This house has been well maintained and is move in ready. The major appliances have been replaced in the last eight years. The asphalt parking area was replaced and enlarged to accommodate four vehicles. The gas furnace with central air conditioning was replaced in 2020. A Hearthstone gas parlor stove provides a cozy feel for the living room. The primary bedroom has supplemental electric on an individual thermostat.

The oversized corner lot/yard is great for entertaining and gardening, complete with a butternut (white walnut) tree that was voted “My Favorite Tree” in Burlington in 2015 by BranchOutBurlington.org!

The Five Sisters neighborhood was voted among the ten best cottage neighborhoods in the whole country in 2007. Within walking distance you can find yoga studios, coffee shops, bakeries, gourmet food markets, breakfast, lunch, and dinner places and lots more. You cannot beat the location if you need to get downtown, to Shelburne Road or the interstate quickly. It is a rare opportunity to both join a community and live in a historic home. Homes, when they come on the market, last for only a short time. Ownership of this property is a rare opportunity!
