The Victorian on Lincoln - Welcome to the Victorian on Lincoln Street! The Victorian on Lincoln Street is a first-floor apartment that is part of a recently renovated two-family house. A lot of the original charm was restored and saved like the wrap around porch, original red oak hardwood floors, and most of the oversized trim. This historic home goes back to 1910 and has soaring high ceilings in all rooms and an inviting front foyer with a large staircase and decorative balusters. The best part of this home is the location on one of the most desired streets in all New Britain. Lincoln Street is only one street away from the popular Walnut Hill Park. This west New Britain neighborhood is known for its historic homes, scenic roads, and quiet setting bordering nearby Kensington. This location is also mostly single family houses and 131 Lincoln blends in and does not look like a typical two family house. The entire house has been renovated with updated kitchens and appliances, refinished or new flooring, all new professional paint (every room had wallpaper that has been removed!), new Thermopane windows, new natural gas water heater, and a new high efficient gas heating system. In addition, a back entry has been rebuilt, the brick foundation has been repointed and the exterior of the house has been repainted. A beautiful house to call home. The apartment has three bedrooms with the largest bedroom in the front of the house. The middle room has three windows that bump out and drenches this living room with natural light. This room abuts the large kitchen. The two other bedrooms are on the opposite sides of the full bath. A nice surprise is the in-unit washer and dryer that is included with the rental and located in the separate laundry room off the kitchen. Each apartment has their own set in a dedicated laundry room. Another bonus is the spacious and green backyard and charming open air wrap around front porch. Both areas add to the outdoor living space that comes with this apartment. Please keep in mind there is a strict application process that focuses heavily on good credit. A minimum of 675+ credit score is required. The tenant is responsible for natural gas and electric. Owner pays for water, snow removal, and landscaping. Renter’s insurance is required. Only one month security deposit with a strong application. Pets considered on a case-by-case basis. Parking is off street. The property is professionally managed. If you are interested, please email our office to setup a private tour and showing. Our website is www.LaSalaRealEstate.com. Thank you for considering the Victorian on Lincoln for your next home.

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with hardwood floors in New Britain, CT

Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for New Britain renters. They`re typically a beautiful addition to your space. They’re also easier to clean and sweep, particularly if you have pets.

However, there are some downsides. Hardwood floors carry sounds. They can also make your apartment noisy for your roommates and downstairs neighbors.

Ask the landlord or property manager about the hardwood floors before signing a lease. Are they actually hardwood or a popular composite alternative? The latter is probably easier to clean and care for than the real thing.

It’s also important to ask about who’s responsible for any damage to the floors and what that entails. Your security deposit could take a hit from scratches, dents, and other damage.

Consider the type of climate you live in. Hardwood floors typically don’t fare well in damp climates full of moisture. Stains and buckling are common in hardwood floors after rain flooding or excessive moisture.

However, hardwood floors can be ideal for dry climates or sunny areas for renters who love the way they look.
