Newton, Massachusetts, United States
Featured on Newton House and Newton Garden tours, this architect redesigned home is on a quiet tree-lined street in a friendly Newton Highlands neighborhood. Walk to Green Line T, main library, shops, schools, restaurants and Crystal Lake. Cold Spring Park with jogging trails and tennis courts is right across the street. Under 30 minutes to downtown Boston, Cambridge and Logan airport. The lovingly maintained, traditional Cape exterior is surrounded by lushly landscaped rock gardens including a goldfish pond and miniature waterfall. Inside, the traditional façade gives way to sunlight streaming through skylights and French doors leading to decks overlooking the gardens. Floors are polished oak and cherry wood, accented with Persian rugs and kilims. The living room and attached sunroom are surrounded with built-in maple bookcases topped with slate and granite, and a traditional brick working fireplace. The owners’ artwork along with paintings and handcrafts from around the world grace the colorful walls. There are plush sofas to relax in, an upright digital piano to play, a collection of hundreds of CD’s to listen to. A half-bath with original “tuxedo” tiles is located next to the living room. The tile and butcher-block open kitchen is fully equipped with all amenities including gas range, dishwasher, disposal, microwave. Eat breakfast on bentwood chairs at the oak table, and watch the birds in the back garden through the wall of glass doors. The first floor also includes a bedroom with cherry floors and private entrance. Glass doors open out to a large deck facing the pond and waterfall. Custom maple and cherry sliding doors are covered in pale green silk and slide over the glass doors like shoji screens, for privacy. The attached bath has slate floors, bathtub/shower lined in granite, and a skylight. Up a short flight of oak steps, you’re greeted with soaring ceilings and views of treetops and sky. The master bedroom fills one side of the upstairs house. There’s a wicker rocking chair for reading, antique bureaus and vanity, and a walk-in closet. On the opposite side upstairs is another large bedroom with it’s own sleeping loft, and skylight. A separate office has everything you need to get work done – Internet cable connection, WIFI router, a sweeping, wood-trimmed desk, bookshelves and files. The upstairs bath is trimmed in cedar and mahogany woods with jet-mist granite countertops and granite stone floor and shower wall. After a day’s work, soak into the 2-person custom granite tub as moonlight shines through clerestory windows. Includes washer/dryer and parking.
