On the Market: A Huge and Historic Chestnut Hill Mansion
This 1875 manor is on the National Register of Historic Places.
107 Waban Hill Road, Newton
Size: 8,411 square feet
According to the Massachusetts Historical Commission, this jaw-dropping mansion atop Waban Hill is one of Newton’s finest examples of Italianate architecture. That’s what put the 1875 home on the National Register of Historic Places, and what makes the seven-bedroom home such a rare find.
The Italianate style was a popular one in Newton from the late 1840s until 1870. While this house is a later example, it features all of the style’s hallmarks: A center pavilion with an arched portico, overhanging cornices, and heavily pedimented window and door frames.
Inside, many original details remain. Stained glass, high ceilings, a grand staircase, and crown moldings add period splendor, while elegant updates in the kitchen and bathrooms allow for more modern comforts. The property also comes with a three-car garage and a seven-room carriage house, not to mention almost an acre of manicured grounds.
