Westlake, College and Batter, Hinds Lofts, The Vermont House...Breaking Down Burlington's Most Popular Condo Buildings

Living in downtown Burlington is a great choice for many.  Why wouldn't it be?  If you pick your condo right, you can easily be just steps from the beautiful Burlington Waterfront, the popular Church Street Marketplace, plenty of parks, the Bike Path, and countless shopping and eating opportunities.  So which condo development is best for you?  Today we'll exprlore some of the selling benefits to each of the more popular projects we find buyers gravitating to; Westlake, College and Battery, Hinds Lofts, and the Vermont House.  

Now, as far as affordability and value goes, the Vermont House is the way to go.  Here you can find quaint 1 and 2 Bedroom apartments, often for the sub-$300k price point.  The higher you get in the building, and the better the views get you should expect slightly higher pricing.  Located at the Corner of Main and St Paul, the Vermont House has one of the best locations in town.  Stroll across main St to he park, or simply head a block east and find yourself right in the center of Church St.  Parking can be a problem as there is a wait list for the private parking lot for the building, but we're told the wait is only 6 months or so, depending on attrition.  http://www.vtbuyer.com/burlington-condominiums/the-vermont-house/

Just down the Street from the Vermont House, you'll find the Hinds Lofts located at 161 St Paul St.  Developed in recent years, the Hinds Lofts is an excellent example of the successful rehabilitation of an antiquated building in downtown Burlington for residential use. The developers maintained the character of the building, yet introduced modern touches and conveniences into the construction of the condominiums which offer a unique living experience. The Hinds Lofts are an easy walk to the Church St Marketplace, the Flynn Theater, and the countless other amenities within beautiful downtown Burlington. The project consisted of just 15 condominiums upon original construction, but the marketing of resale units occasionally arises.  http://www.vtbuyer.com/burlington-vt-real-estate/hinds-lofts/

Geeting a bit closer to the Lake, we'll head West and find College and Battery--of Burlington's finest condominium projects.  Ranging from 1 Bedroom Flats, to 3 and 4 bedroom units and large penthouses, College and Battery boasts not only an ideal location in the heart of Burlington, but most units have fantastic views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains.

Enjoy walking to the waterfront, or the Church St Market place for shopping, restaurants, and all that Burlington has to offer- right from your front step.  The condominiums have reserved parking in the private garage, storage in the basement, and secured locked entrances. 

Along with being the exclusive builder for College and Battery, Dousevicz Real Estate was also one of the active brokerage firms used in the marketing of the project when it was first completed. This experience coupled with Brad’s extensive knowledge of the downtown Burlington luxury condominium market from being the marketing broker for a similar luxury condo project, The Westlake, offers Brad the level of experience you will not find in another agent.  http://www.vtbuyer.com/burlington-vt-condos-for-sale/college-and-battery-condos/

The Westlake is one of Dousevicz Real Estate’s most recent and ambitious development and construction projects to date. Consisting of 32 luxury condominiums with sweeping views of the Adirondacks and Lake Champlain, the Westlake is one of Burlington’s most desirable addresses. The condos at Westlake mostly consist of 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath open layouts that benefit from the best location and views in Burlington.  Prices generally range from the low $400k's for lower floor units to over $1,000,000 for upper floor and penthouse units.  Most of the units at Westlake were fully customized during construction so many units are unique in design and floorplan!  http://www.vtbuyer.com/burlington-vt-condos-for-sale/the-westlake/

Although we only explored four projects here today, there are plenty of other condominium projects in Burlington, depending on which location you desire.  Please call or email Brad today to help in your customized search for Burlington Condos!  

Finding Great Views from Vermont Real Estate

Vermont Mountain View Homes

Hands down, Vermont's most notable resource is it's beautiful landscape. Whether you are driving on a country road in Essex, Shelburne or Charlotte, or visiting a beach on the shore of Lake Champlain in Burlington, Colchester, or South Hero-- it is undoubtedly the views that you first notice. It's one of the many things that makes Vermont special to us all, and we are so very fortunate to have such a landscape to enjoy day in and day out. Buyers frequently contact my office looking for a "piece" of their own landscape - something they can enjoy from perhaps their own front porch, bedroom window, or yard. After all, a house is only as good as the location for which it is placed, and in Vermont, great views can always be related to a great location.

So where are buyers going to find great views of Vermont?

I'll explore some of those areas today.

Downtown Burlington

In addition to being the vibrant epicenter of the State, Burlington offers some of the most fantastic views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack mountains. As the marketing agent for the recently completed Westlake Condominiums in Downtown Burlington, I constantly met with buyers from all over the world and the feedback was always the same- the views from the building were perhaps the BEST they had EVER seen! Surely, the lake coupled with Burlington's beautiful waterfront park and the neighboring Adirondack Mountains all contribute to this unique view. There are a variety of properties that enjoy such views in downtown Burlington. The first that comes to mind are a few of the luxury condominium projects- Westlake and College and Battery, for example. You can also find views on select homes within the Hill Section as well.

Shelburne and Charlotte

If you are looking for a mix of country living, and perhaps the finest views in the state, then you'll find them in either Shelburne or Charlotte. Located a short drive from downtown Burlington, Shelburne and Charlotte are conveniently located destinations where you can find rolling country landscapes, and perhaps the finest lake front in Vermont along Lake Champlain.

Essex and South Burlington

If you are looking for a property that is located a short distance from Burlington, but with easy accessibility to local shopping and other services, AND want a view, then look in South Burlington and Essex. The main "view corridors" for these areas are easy to find, but they sometimes go unnoticed by the general public looking for real estate with a view. For example, South Burlington has great Lake Front property off Shelburne Road, and wonderful mountain and lake views from Spear and Dorset Streets. Essex is a great country community that has some of the best Mountain views in the State. Try your search for land or homes near the Route 15 Corridor, specifically the areas near Old Stage Road, or Towers Road for example. You will find great views of Mt Mansfield (and easy accessibility to skiing) and a convenient location near local shopping, schools, and restaurants. Vermont is known for it's beautiful landscape, but it is important to know that you can find your own "piece" of the beautiful countryside in many properties throughout the greater Burlington area- you just need to know where to look!
