Welcome to Newton

Luxurious estates nestled amid lush greenery. Discover Newton real estate!
 
Flanked by seven hills a few miles west of downtown Boston, Newton is a patchwork of thirteen distinct villages sprinkled with winding tree-lined streets and elegant homes. Draped in a tranquil, suburban atmosphere with old-world elegance and breathtaking natural scenery, this exclusive, family-oriented suburb serves up every element for an enriched quality of life, from healthcare facilities to sprawling green parks, and tons of historic sites to make every day feel like a touristy adventure.
 
Early industries in the late 18th century were characterized by small mills, long before Newton’s emergence into one of America's earliest commuter suburbs. Wealthy Boston businessmen gravitated to the booming area, erecting fine homes on old farms, and as subsequent waves of prosperity hit the town, Newton became even more desirable and densely settled. Today, the Newton real estate market effortlessly cradles residential spaces alongside huge commercial headquarters without once letting go of the serenity and quietness for which it is cherished. With charming streets unfurling towards houses that boast exemplary design and stately sophistication—Victorian mansions and lavish Georgian estates, Tudor Revival homes tucked off the road from colonials—Newton truly brims with splendor and significant architectural heritage. If you are searching for homes for sale in Newton, our team would love to assist you throughout the process.
