This historic property is remarkable for its beauty and close proximity to Newton Centre. Enter the vestibule, imported from Europe, and you will be surrounded with leaded glass walls and a stained glass, coffered ceiling. Then, find yourself in a grand foyer with extraordinary woodwork and a majestic staircase. To the right is the living room with its series of round arched windows. To the left is the elegant dining room. Doors from the foyer and living room take you to a wrap around porch. Upstairs above the foyer is a magical sitting room with a semi-circular bench and windows topped with stained glass and stained glass ceiling. While the experience of these public spaces is as beautiful as a kaleidoscope, the house is light filled throughout with many handsome contemporary spaces. A detached legal studio apartment with off-street parking also sits on this nearly half-acre lot, surrounded by beautiful gardens. Truly a gem. Not to be missed.
