— The Stratton house in Burlington is being renovated to a modernist feel.
The family of the late Frank Stratton will get $5 million to restore the home to its former grandeur, said owner Richard Stratton.
The project is part of a new campaign to revitalize the Stratton area.
The Stratton family, who died in 2016, had their home renovated in the 1920s for $1,000.
They say they’ve been wanting to restore it for years and the $5-million donation is an important step in that effort.
The $1.4 million project will be completed in the next three to five years.
It will include the restoration of two floors of the Stringtons home, including the dining room, basement, attic and staircase.
The project will also include the addition of a second basement level.
The restoration will also involve new lighting and structural changes.
It will include new flooring, flooring panels and roofing.
The new floor plan will also add two new windows and two additional doorways.
The new home will have the same interior design as the original home.
The owners of the original Stratton residence in Burlington say the home has been a family destination for generations and it’s been an economic driver for the community.
The Stratts say the new renovations will provide additional revenue to help pay for the renovations.
