Size: 3,987 square feet
Bedrooms: 5
Baths: 2

It’s not everyday you get the chance to buy an Arts and Crafts-inspired stucco Colonial for $326 per square foot. This ivy-clad beauty in Newton Highlands is a relative bargain for its size. The manse stretches out to almost 4,000 square feet, yet only asks $1.29 million—the price equivalent of a small South End townhouse.

The well-maintained abode boasts an oversized living room with a wood-burning fireplace, plus a classic butler’s pantry with a copper sink in the kitchen. Outside, impeccably landscaped gardens grace the yard, and in the corner of the lot, there’s a large heated barn.
