The mansard roof rises with a curve above the bracketed cornice, and the sides of the roof are enriched with alternating rows of scalloped and straight-edge shingles. Its many bay windows are framed by unusual colonettes that have tall bases and Corinthian capitals.
The magic of the Burr Mansion is in the proportions. It is a rare and magnificent home for elegant entertaining on a grand scale, yet it retains an amazingly comfortable ambience with utmost privacy in its own park-like setting. The ambience of an English garden surrounds the house on three sides with patterned boxwood hedges, beautiful rose bushes and hydrangeas. Perennials and seasonal blooms add color, height and texture to the exquisite landscape. An enormous old totoki tree, a rare landmark tree by the gated entrance, and cherub fountain are the focal points of the garden, one of the finest garden settings in the City.
