This colonial-style home in West Newton Hill was built in 1895. It was recently renovated and expanded by architect John LaFreniere and landscape architect Reed Hilderbrand, and it’s set on .85 acres with multiple porches and patios.

Inside, the foyer has a grand staircase and a fireplace. Light from an arched second-story window fills the open space. The foyer leads to a dining room with a fireplace and built-in shelving, and a living room with a bay window. The kitchen has a large island and clean-lined cabinetry, and it opens to a dining area with floor to ceiling windows and views of the property.

The home has five bedrooms, with three on the second floor, and two on the third floor. The master suite has a walk-in closet, sitting room, and bath. The home also includes a large second-floor great room.

In addition to a covered front entry and a side porch, the property has a patio off of the kitchen, a pool, and a spa.
