In 2000, artist Maggie Sherman moved from her longtime home in Montgomery to a condo in Burlington’s Old North End. “I thought I would never own a home again,” says Sherman. “And I had no intention of buying this house. There was no way in the world that I could afford it. But I just got this bug in my ear. I said ‘OK, I’ll take it.’ Then I said, ‘Now what am I going to do?'”
Four years later, Sherman had turned the home on Lakeview Terrace into a bed-and-breakfast called One of a Kind. The 1904 four-bedroom residence–which she describes as “eclectic vernacular Victorian with a bit of Arts and Craft”–sits on a ledge overlooking Lake Champlain, with a swimming pool and gardens.
