On The Market: 258 Nevada Street, Newton
Where a smart location meets an even smarter house.
A spacious, newly constructed house in Newton is enough on it’s own, but this property verges on being categorized as a smart house. The alarm systems—at the front door, garage door, and bedroom—speakers throughout the house, and heated garage with a system to vacuum your car are just the beginning of what this property has to offer.
“It has some really neat features that people aren’t used to having,” says New England Preferred Properties listing agent Dino Rossi. “It’s kind of nice to see that homes are headed in that direction, and adding these types of things.”
These features are highly specialized—highlighted by the fact that the property has the highest Energy Star rating—offering ways to cut costs once you own the home. This efficiency even stretches to the yard; the lawn sprinklers are uniquely designed in energy-conscious zones for localized watering to avoid overwatering areas that don’t need it.
And at over 4,000 square feet, this house offers benefits for owners and for entertaining. The formal living room and dining room, new, open kitchen and family room area, as well as another family room downstairs and an office area on the top floor make this an exceptionally spacious abode. With gas connection to the mahogany deck, you can have a grilling party outside with music flowing from the speakers, then crawl into bed at the end of the night beneath the stunning cathedral ceilings in the master bedroom.
