Stately Home on Islington Peninsula
It is a beautiful thing when you see a home that has been thoughtfully designed to blend harmoniously with the natural world. A stately Gambrel colonial with historic significance, 236 Islington Road sits on a verdant lot approximately 20,645 sq. ft. With over 4,00 sq. ft, the home has a versatile floor plan with features including custom millwork, gourmet kitchen, surround sound, second floor laundry room, california closets and so much more. The flow from room to room is enhanced by a palette of colors from the natural world. Beautiful windows throughout the home offer good light and green vistas looking out. Tile work and fixtures in the baths are noteworthy. The new construction built in 2007 was designed to blend with the original 1870 facade.
The transitional spaces blending the interior to exterior living include a mudroom with radiant heat and built in cabinetry, screened in porch looking out to the landscaped lot featuring specimen plantings, balconies, and a rear patio overlooking a large level lawn bordered with green trees, bushes, and other plantings. The two car garage is convenient to the mudroom entry.
Islington Peninsula is a small peninsula located in northwest Auburndale and is favored by many for the serene setting on the Charles River.
The peninsula itself appears to have taken its present form around 1815, when the construction of dams on the Charles River flooded an existing meadow and substantially divided this area from the rest of Auburndale…By the 1870s, the area was primarily encompassed by substantial estates owned by wealthy Boston businessmen attracted to the open space and clean air of the suburbs. – www.newtonma.gov
