Good Gracious Living in Newton, Massachusetts

Text by Maria La Piana
There’s elegance—and plenty of it in Newton, Massachusetts—but then there’s understated elegance. The kind that makes a home feel unmistakably gracious—without showing off. This very special Colonial on an acre lot in West Newton Hill is one such home. It’s impeccably constructed to be sure (just look at that clean-lined millwork). No detail was left out; the bead board-ceilinged sunroom is testament to that. It has every amenity of a luxury home … and yet feels immensely livable. It’s just shy of 5,000 square feet, with 12 rooms (eight bedrooms, three full and one half bath). Its floor plan is perfect for entertaining and the sunny yellow professional kitchen will please even the most discerning home cook. Every room feels unfussy, informal, and still refined. The magic isn’t limited to this home’s interiors; there are multiple porches, a detached carriage house and European-inspired gardens, too. It’s the complete package—minus the over-the-top giftwrap. The property is listed for $3,195,000 by Ilene Solomon with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Newton, MA. The MLS # is 71955719.
