On the Market: An Italianate Villa in Belmont
70 Common Street, Belmont
Size: 3,828 square feet
This dramatic home in Belmont is thousands of miles away from the Mediterranean, and yet a stroll past its ivy-clad facade could make you forget the nearest body of water is a pond. Built in 1898, the Italianate villa has been in the same family for more than 150 years—now, the unconventional abode could be yours for a cool $2,495,000.
Inside, a grand entryway leads to a double foyer topped by an atrium. Vaulted ceilings in the second-floor great room soar as high as 30 feet, creating an open floor plan among the living room, dining room, kitchen, and study. One of the five bedrooms comes with an attached spa suite, complete with its own entrance. The spa overlooks the property’s stunning backyard, which boasts a stone terrace, a fountain, and lush gardens.
