Burlington Vermont’s Hill Section neighborhood covers the elevated land east and southeast of Downtown. With numerous homes sporting Lake Champlain & Adirondack Mountain views and with quick access to the major employers of the University of Vermont, Champlain College and the UVM Medical Center, this beautiful historic neighborhood is a dream location for many potential buyers.
Today, the Burlington Hill Section has a reputation for some of Burlington’s most elegant residences. Homes are large and of high quality. The tree-lined streets are dotted with mansions, some with their original barns and carriage houses, including many in the Italianate, Victorian, Federal, Tudor, Greek Revival, and Colonial Revival styles built in the 19th and early 20th century.
The Hill Section is also home to historic inns, bed and breakfasts, and Fletcher Allen Health Care, Vermont’s largest hospital. The University Green Historic District is at the very top of the hill. University of Vermont, founded in 1791, was the nation’s first agricultural college and is one of the country’s oldest medical schools. This district, donated by Ira Allen and protected from future development, has 29 historic building surrounding the green.
Burlington Vermont was an important port in the late 19th Century, and many Burlington Hill Section homes still stand to illustrate the commercial successes this unlikely port once knew. Hill Section homes are famous for their Widows Walks or Captains Walk. These walkways or platforms on the roofs of early New England homes commanded a view of the sea. In Burlington’s case, that sea is Lake Champlain. From these high porches, captains could easily view their ships at anchor in Burlington Harbor. Likewise, a captain’s wife could watch for the return of her husband’s ship.
Affectionately known by all as the house with the folk-art PIG, this hill-section, contemporary farmhouse with mid-century flair is a true gem. The chef's kitchen offers professional grade stainless appliances, a custom concrete island, stainless counters, custom tiger maple cabinetry, built-ins, window bench seating, radiant heat and walk-though pantry. The 2010 architecturally designed addition is flooded with sunlight and is gives as much attention to form as it does to function. The master offers radiant heat, a soaking tub, mid-century vanity, dressing room, seasonal lake views and an en suite office. The exposed beams, exposed brick, original hardwood flooring, vintage fixtures and lighting are features that make this home simply irresistible. Live within walking distance to UVM, Champlain College, Lake Champlain, Church Street and all that downtown Burlington has to offer. Brilliantly renovated and stylistically unique this home is one-of-a-kind.
