Remarks

Spectacular Victorian designed by famous New England architect Ralph Adams Cram, who also designed the "grand old ladies" known as the Bourne and Sagamore Bridges. The home, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is perfectly sited on over half acre lot on one of Newton's most desirable streets in sought after Farlow Hill. 1890's period detail is abundant throughout yet transformed for today's living through modern updates and decor. Front parlor with fireplace & window seat flank the entry. The banquet sized formal dining room with butlers pantry connects to the remodeled and expanded eat in kitchen, opening to the spacious deck, with views of the expansive professionally landscaped back yard. The second floor includes 4 generous bedrooms including a master suite with over-sized dressing room. The third floor has 2 additional bedrooms and two baths. There is a fabulous Porte Cochere-style covered side entrance. Minutes to Boston and all major routes.
