Come Home to Serenity
Every once in a while you will find a home that seems to inhabit the land. Located on a private road adjacent to the beautiful Woodland Golf Club. Serenity is easily found inside and outside this lovely home. A well appointed 1920 Colonial home with four bedrooms, two full baths, living room, dining room, and a dramatic family room with panoramic views of the golf course. Master suite is located over the family room and enjoys the same glorious vista. This home is beautiful, unique, has great light, hardwood floors, and front & back stairways. Potential for expansion with the approx. 1/3 of an acre lot with an additional 1,400 sq. ft. parcel. Beautiful grounds with many mature plantings for seasonal interest and a romantic gazebo with fireplace.
Location, Location, Location
No kidding aside, this location is terrific. For commuters, Walsingham Street is located in Newton Upper Falls less than one-third of a mile to the Woodland T Stop. There is easy highway access with to Boston and surround. Bordering Newton Lower Falls are the Villages of Auburndale and Waban, as well as, the town of Wellesley which all offer unique shopping and dining opportunities.
No wonder this home went under agreement so quickly. A house with original architectural detail like this is not easy to find these days–especially one with a corner lot in the highly desirable Newton Highlands. The beautiful exterior facade includes an elegant front porch ready for sitting and sipping lemonade as you watch the world go by. This grand old home has high ceilings, large foyer, and over-sized windows of various forms and patterns. The many fine details like the paneled doors and brass chandeliers are consistent with a nineteenth century Queen Anne Victorian home.
This sweet home begs politely to be returned to her former glory, yet insists on certain modern updates. Victorian homes, in general, speak to the creative designer in all of us who have spent time browsing HookedonHouses, or enjoyed a This Old House renovation story. The choices are endless.
Multiple fireplaces were typical in these homes.

If an older home is not your cup of tea and a fieldstone basement gives you the willies, then a new construction home may be just what you need. Many buyers are choosing to buy new homes because of the many advantages; easy maintenance, energy efficiency, comfort and indoor air quality control, and, if you buy early enough in the process, the ability to design your own home.
Still the process of buying a new home has its challenges. The Greater Boston Area continues to be a strong seller’s market, and land is at a premium, so there is a lack of inventory. Finding the right home in the best locations takes fortitude. In addition, touring new homes in the early construction stage means you need to be able to visualize the final space with just the help of drawings and photos of similar products.
Keeping all this in mind, buying a new home is exciting and offers quality of life on a high level.
This handsome colonial is located on a lovely tree lined street in Newton Lower Falls and is located on the 16th green of the Leo J. Martin Golf Course. Congratulations to my buyers, Carol and Bob. I wish them much happiness in their beautiful NEW home.
Come home to a lovingly updated center entrance colonial. Enter to a generous foyer with large coat closet, and be drawn into this bright and airy home. The classic layout opens to rooms on either side of the foyer. On the left is a beautiful room suitable for a family room or a dining area. It leads to a white kitchen with a breakfast bar. On the right is a front-to-back living room with a fireplace opening to an additional charming room with a wall of windows. As I toured this home, I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop…it never did. The layout of houses uses space wisely.
Off the kitchen is a lovely long 3 season porch with golf course views. A spacious back yard and a 2 car garage are additional features. This home has two frontages, one on Beacon Street and the other on Walsingham where there is a private road leading to the entrance of the garage. There is also a powder room on the first floor.
