Description

Paradise realized! A rare opportunity to own a country estate on 1.62 acres on the bank of the Charles. This Newton landmark has just become available after 50 years. A sun-filled, sprawling Italianate style house with large windows, 4 fireplaces, period finishes, curved walls and unexpected touches is unique and welcoming. This home, although grand, is very comfortable and relaxing to be in. A large living room highlights the magnificent view of the Charles. The library with its handsome marble fireplace is next to a delightful solarium. A large family room on the mezzanine level has its own staircase. There are 7 bdrms on the 2nd & 3rd floors. Outside enjoy the perennial gardens and the water views. Have a meal in the screened gazebo and enjoy the view. Newtons best kept secret: the Islington Peninsula, a nbhd surrounded by the Charles. It feels like country living but it is remarkably close to the X bus, the commuter rail, Route 128 and the Mass Pike. Great for entertaining.
