On the Market: An Arts and Crafts Home in Newton
56 Bennington Street, Newton
Size: 1,726 square feet
This carefully maintained Arts and Crafts-style home in Newton is a rare find. It was built in 1880—right at the start of the Arts and Crafts movement. In the early 19th-century, Arts and Crafts builders focused on traditional craftsmanship, which generally was at odds with the ornate Victorian architecture that was popular at the time. The home has impressive woodwork and period details as well as plenty of exposed beams—an Arts and Crafts hallmark. It’s undergone a series of renovations, boasting an updated kitchen and second-floor remodel. Outside, there’s a two-car garage and a fenced-in yard.
