This newly renovated Cape-style farmhouse on Hyde Street in Newton offers beautiful architectural detail as well as practicality. Though it has traditional charm, you won’t miss any amenities of today such as A/C, Harvey windows, and a sprinkler system for the yard. Not to mention its amazing curb appeal.

“What makes it so special is it almost looks like a doll house,” Coldwell Banker listing agent Ilene Solomon said. “It is historic on the outside, and inside, it’s tastefully renovated. It’s a landmark on the street. When people drive by, they always comment on it. It’s adorable, very picturesque.”

Located in the Newton Highlands, homeowners will enjoy the convenience of being near Newton Center, the T, and many shops and restaurants. This home is ideal for anyone looking for a quaint, convenient property.

“It has a wide appeal,” Solomon said. “It’s compact, good for empty nesters. Baby Boomers who want to downsize—it’s perfect for them, and for young families. Lots of different groups are interested.”
