Welcoming 1895 Victorian on one of Newton's prettiest streets. Updated for today's lifestyle, the house is set on a lovely 3/4 acre lot, with a heated in-ground swimming pool and a detached two-car garage with extra storage. Enter from the large wrap-around porch to gracious living, dining and family rooms, plus a home office/or first floor bedroom and full bath. The kitchen is inviting and fully equipped, with soapstone counters and cherry cabinets, and ample room for family dining; French doors open to the deck and beautiful, level backyard. On the second and third floors, there are a total of 8 bedrooms and a study, three full renovated bathrooms with radiant heated floors, and storage. The lower level has a workroom (that could also be made into a wine cellar), exercise space and the systems for the house. Located very near Cabot Elementary, Newton North High School and the shops of Newtonville, the property is convenient also to commuter routes and downtown Boston.
