260 Chestnut St
Do not miss one of the most beautiful properties on West Newton Hill! Modeled after the Longfellow House in Cambridge, this stunning Georgian Revival is a feast for the eyes. There is no word but “spectacular” to describe the architectural details of the interior and exterior of the house with its columns, pilasters, arched entryways, Palladian and fan windows, and fireplaces. From the decorative windows surrounding the doors in the Vestibule to the gorgeous Bridal Staircase and coffered ceiling embellished with carved motifs in the Foyer, you instantly understand the masterpiece you are entering. Of special note is the Inglenook off the Foyer, the 3rd floor 2-Bedroom Suite, the Widow’s Walk, and the Porte Cochere. To quote the Mass Historical Commission, “This building is by far the most ornate example of early 20th century architecture in the area.” Yet, it is welcoming and comfortable, the perfect place to create many wonderful memories with family and friends.
