FOR SALE - 4 Laurel Crest, Burlington, CT

Imagine the magnificent home you could have. Only $625,000!

This is one of those homes you have to see and imagine the home it could be with some updates. The home was built in 1986 by a builder expecting to make it his own home. Apparently life took a few unexpected turns and the builder sold the home instead. The current homeowner is the second owner in 25 years. 

Front of house

Walk around the property and look up at the brick work. The architectural detail is stunning and cost prohibitive in today's building market.


The marble entryway with double staircase and majestic chandelier is stunning. Just imagine the grand entrance you could provide to your guests!

Foyer to exterior

The hardwood, multi-paneled doors with the wrought iron details really add to the richness of the entryway. Look up and appreciate the Juliet balconies on either side and the large picture windows.

Dining Room

Can't you picture yourself having a very pleasant dinner with a few friends in this formal dining room? Very nice hardwood floors and bright space.


Yes, we know the kitchen needs updating! Just imagine the gourmet kitchen you could create in this space. This kitchen provides plenty of open and bright space with sliders to the patio. Conveniently adjacent to the kitchen is a butler's pantry and laundry room!

Family room

How about this family room terrific for entertaining or just "hanging out"? Two sets of French doors to the patio, wet bar and floor to ceiling stone fireplace. Cozy and intimate or open the doors to entertain several friends comfortably.


Take care of the daily paperwork and mail and stay organized. This office space is located just off of the family room allowing you to take care of business while still being close to the rest of the family.

Pool/Living room

The current homeowner prefers to use the living room as a pool room. Whatever your preference, it works. Nice hardwood floors and large picture window provides plenty of light.

Master Bed

O.K. picture yourself starting a nice fire in this floor to ceiling marble fire-place, going out to the deck in the winter months to soak in the hot tub and then coming back in to warm up by the cozy fire. Or, now that the warm spring days are here, open the French doors to the deck and sit out there enjoying the beautiful views and the sounds of nature! What a relaxing way to start off your day.


No, I don't like the pink tub either. Again, here is one of those rooms you would want to update. Currently there is a jetted tub, separate steam shower, his and her sinks, bidet, make up area, spacious linen closet and skylight. You could feel like royalty in the master bath you could create from this space. As an added bonus, there is a small deck off of this room.  


Looking for a home where you could have a large game room or theater room? Here it is, Constructed in 2010, this room has new carpet, paint and just needs final trim work to be done by the new owner. Plenty of room for several game tables or that home theater you want!

Home office

Do you work from your home and need your own space? This home has that also, Bright and private with new carpet and paint and plenty of room for you to manage your small business or work space.

Living room north wing


Possible kitchenette north wing

Full bath

Full Bath north wing

The north wing of this home was just built out in 2010. Approximately 2000 square feet with great potential as an in-law apartment or au-pair suite. This space consists of a generously sized living room, two bedrooms, what could be a small kitchenette and a full bath with washer dryer hook-ups. To top it off, this part of the house has it's own stairwell and entryway so no one has to get in each other's way! Trim work also needs to be finished in this area of the home for the final certificate of occupancy to be pulled. As the buyer, you can choose to finish it if you will be using it the space as living space. The north wing and the game/theater room have electric heat and no central air. 

. pool

Like to swim or just soak in the pool during those scorching summer days? Well, the pristine pool awaits you. The pool has been consistently maintained and opened and closed by a professional pool company. Pool was built in 2005. There is also a side entry way from the pool area where you will find separate shower and toilet areas along with a storage room for all of the pool equipment. No need to trudge through the house with wet feet!

pool and exterioi

Spacious three car garage and plenty of parking space. You really can have it all!

Of course, there is central air (except in the north wing and game room), central vac, security system and 400 amp electrical service. The mechanicals of this home will probably need to be updated in the near future. The roof is a heavy duty architectural roof and was installed in 1997. It appears to be in very good condition. There are copper roofs over the bay windows, lightning rods on the house and bluestone walkway, entryway and patio. Lots of skylights, vaulted ceilings and architechturally impressive. See for more information and for a virtual tour.

No, this home is not a foreclosure. It is a short sale and this is why it is priced at such an enticing price. The paperwork is ready to go to the bank and the seller just needs a contract to send along with it to get the bank approval on the sale.  This magnificent home offers over 7000 square feet of living space for $625,000. That's only $89/sq. ft. Leaving plenty of room to build some equity by doing the necessary updates. Due to the low price being asked, the home will be sold in "as is condition".  You could not build a home like this one today for even double the price per square foot being asked. Take advantage of the buying power you have today and get this home at an incredible price. Call me today for a private showing 860-882-0410.

Thank you Paul. It really is a great home with so much potential. It ended up closing for $515,000 after being reduced a couple of more times.
