Three Newton Gems

With a charming village feel, yet only seven miles from downtown Boston, Newton is brimming with attractive amenities, including exceptional public and private schools, a first-rate hospital, vibrant local businesses, chic shops, excellent restaurants, and the prestigious Jesuit university, Boston College.

Within Newton is the exclusive and historic area of West Newton Hill, where you can find extraordinary and unique luxury properties. “It is one of the premier places to live in Newton,” says Mitchel Bernstein of Coldwell Banker, who does close to 70% of his business in the town and lives with his family in West Newton.

Currently, Bernstein’s realty team, MB Associates, led by Bernstein and Maxine Burtman, is listing several spectacular West Newton homes. Here are three properties that exemplify the grandeur of the village of West Newton Hill:

60 Howland Road

This shingled-style colonial sits on more than one acre of park-like land and offers over eleven thousand square feet of living space. A grand two-story entry hall has a double staircase leading to five large bedroom suites on the second level, while on the main level, a double-height stone fireplace and wall of windows add to the magnificence of the home. “With a long driveway and large acreage, the home has an extremely private feel,” says Bernstein.

288 Prince Street

“This house has been gut-renovated, and it is just incredibly beautiful,” says Bernstein of the spectacularly landscaped Colonial at 288 Prince Street. Exterior and interior features, such as an oversized wrap-around terrace, spacious dining room, and first-floor guest suite, make for an ideal family home and entertaining hub. With three levels of luxury living, this is truly an exceptional property.

194 Otis

With a keen interest in the construction side of real estate sales, Mitchel is recognized as a renovation and new construction specialist, which makes this third property a particular favorite.

Due to be completed and ready for move-in by August, the completely rebuilt and expanded colonial on the corner lot at 194 Otis is a sight to be seen. With both transitional and modern details, such as a glass floating staircase, the phenomenal home offers seven spacious bedrooms, nine baths, and over 8000 square feet of luxury living.
