Built in 1883 this magnificent showplace is proudly sited on an equally beautiful 3/4 acre lot in the heart of West Newton Hill. Light filled rooms with southern exposure and of incredible scale are backdrops to grand entertaining possibilities. The large entry and main staircase set the tone and style of the restored and meticulously maintained 6+ bedroom home with period architectural detail and soaring ceilings. Most of the major rooms are oriented to, and anchored, by this central public space. 8 fireplaces, high ceilings, updated kitchen, several en-suite bedrooms and au-pair quarters enhance this sophisticated home. Ideally located within close proximity to the Village of West Newton with its fine restaurants, easy access to Mass Pike/128, the Commuter Rail/Express Bus, Peirce Elementary School, and Newton North High School.
