This stately brick colonial is the quintessential illustration of Newton's traditional and timeless real estate market. Its curbside presentation proudly displays its landmark architecture with a slight creative flair of its curved front portico. Its interior does not disappoint with customary banquet-sized common rooms and a versatile floor plan throughout four levels of finished living space.
One of the shining features in this beautiful home is its six fireplaces. Guests are greeted with the first hearth in the welcoming front foyer and again in two formal settings in the expansive 31 x 18 square foot living room that includes a charming bench seat and in the 18 x 18 square foot dining area where the ambers truly sparkle against its colonial blue walls. The 14 x 12 square foot family room also includes a fireplace as well as the handsome study. The last two fireplaces are located on the second level in the master suite and a family bedroom.
In addition to the living, dining and family rooms, the first floor also includes a magnificent 22 x 20 square foot renovated kitchen that supplies an abundance of granite surfaces, stainless steel appliances and French doors and includes a lovely breakfast area where the entire family can enjoy time together before and after meals. This floor concludes with an intimate 12 x 7 square foot den.
The second level hosts a luxurious 19 x 14 square foot fireplaced suite with a walk-in closet and full renovated bath with a steam shower and free-standing tub. It also offers a 15 x 12 square foot fireplaced bedroom, a 16 x 12 square foot bedroom, a large 14 x 13 square foot home office with built-ins and a laundry area. The third story presents two generously-sized rooms with the home's fourth bedroom at 26 x 14 square feet and a 21 x 16 square foot study and full bath. This level would also make an ideal guest, au-pair or teenager suite.
The finished basement provides recreational and leisure options with a 29 x 15 square foot playroom and a 26 x 11 square foot exercise room.
The entire footprint of this grand home was resourcefully utilized to offer 4,812 square feet of living space with a wide variety of rooms that can adapt and evolve with a growing family. It was tastefully renovated to furnish its occupants with the highest level of conveniences and amenities yet with a conscious effort to preserve its traditional roots. The entire process, from its original construction in 1920 to today, is incredibly impressive.
