From the Zillow listing:


Charming 1875 Victorian gem nestled among the tree lined street of East Union in the Historic Downtown section of Burlington City. Back on the market after recent improvements: interior french drain and 2 sump pumps with battery back up have changed the now wonderful basement. The right side wall was repaired after consultation and design by a professional engineer. This ginger trimmed beauty sits on a lush deep landscaped lot partially fenced in. A timeless black wrought iron gate add the extra spice to the front yard and a Estate Series Victorian electric lantern adds the ambiance in the back yard. Walk up granite steps to the one of a kind wood carved double doors into the two story grand foyer with sweeping stairway to the second floor. Hardwood floors throughout the home. Through another set of magnificent double wood doors is the front porch to enjoy many a night. To the right of the house is the formal parlor, which in Victorian times, was reserved to receive guests and to conduct important business and events. The parlor has 9+ ceilings as do most of the rooms on the first floor, a wood burning fireplace with an ornate marble mantle, a crystal chandelier in the center of the room, a picture hanging molding around the perimeter of the room (to hang pictures without harming the plaster walls) and a door with an ornamental iron exterior door to a nice sized concrete patio.
