Editor's Note: Starting this week (Sun., Feb. 3) the Newton Patch "Home of the Week" will shift to featuring Newton homes on alternating weeks. On the off-weeks, we will feature homes in Waltham.
This classic and beautifully renovated 76 year-old Tudor in the popular Ward School district introduces it unique and distinctive construction curbside for Newton residents. It also graciously presents exceptional characteristics inside, but that artistic journey is reserved for its fortunate occupants and their guests. Layers of natural materials, such as brick and stone provide a solid and distinguished structural foundation while its interior flaunts many architectural designs, including built-ins, cozy nooks, archways and elaborate ceiling patterns. It was also resourcefully fabricated with an abundance of windows, from decorative, to functional to skylit to drench every space in warm, natural sunlight.
With 4,139 square feet of living space distributed throughout three finished levels, the full footprint of this home was resourcefully utilized to provide its residents with many versatile spaces. The first floor begins with a large 25 x 14 square foot sunken living room with a fireplace and exposed ceiling beams and a formal 14 x 14 square foot dining area with a charming built-in corner china cabinet. Family members will be continually drawn to the comfortable 25 x 8 square foot family room, especially after finishing a meal that was prepared within the gorgeously-renovated kitchen that includes upgraded cabinetry, granite surfaces, stainless steel accents and a lovely breakfast area.
An enchanting circular staircase leads to the second level landing and one of the imaginative showcases within this home, a spectacular domed ceiling. This floor also features four bedrooms, with a 25 x 14 square foot skylit master suite with a fully-equipped walk-in closet with built-ins and full private bath, and three bedrooms at 11 x 10, 14 x 13 and 17 x 11 square feet.
The 845 square foot walk-out lower level encourages a seamless flow with indoor and outdoor recreational activities between its 25 x 14 square foot fireplaced playroom and the quarter of an acre lush and private backyard. This floor also includes an 11 x 10 square foot exercise room and a guest suite with an 11 x 11 square foot bedroom and full bath.
With its exquisite updates and original construction, this multifaceted home now perfectly unites its traditional origins with modern enhancements to provide a residence that will fulfill the evolving needs of a growing family within beautiful settings. Its timeless features and exceptional foundation will also remain genuine and engaging for its next owners and many future Newton generations.
