Three stories, a full walkout basement, 6(yes 6) bedrooms, 6 fireplaces and 3 1/2 baths are just part of this 3600+ sq ft home which has an unobstructed view of the Burlington Bristol Bridge and the Delaware River promenade. As you look at the pictures note that the original wide plank floors, 12 over 12 wood windows, high ceilings(some 12'), interior trim, plaster and staircases have all been preserved.
