1899 Newton Highlands Grand Victorian

Grand Victorian with proper front porch

Grand Victorian with proper front porch

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.
