Near Porter Square and the Somerville Museum, the Elbridge Newton House is a historic charmer with eleven rooms and period details to spare. Built in 1896, the Queen Ann-style standout won a preservation award for its updates and renovations. Inside, the home features 15 stained glass windows, deep moldings, original pocket doors, and detailed woodwork—especially on the main staircase. The kitchen, newly remodeled in 2014, includes custom cabinetry and stone countertops. In the family room, a wood-burning fireplace is flanked by built-in shelving. Most sleeping quarters are found on the second floor, but a third-floor bedroom has a skylight and bath. The home has a large front porch, a back patio, and a detached garage.
