Situated around 7 miles from Downtown Boston, Newton is a historic city renowned for its pristine landscapes and an affluent lifestyle. 

An exclusive suburban neighborhood

Newton’s reputation of being one of the most desirable places to live in Boston is well-earned. Composed of 13 distinct villages, winding tree-lined streets, and elegant estates, locals are merely a walk away from the city’s tranquil nature reserves and Boston College’s beautiful campus. 

This unique enclave also has its own stop on the D Line for commuters. Those who drive to work can also directly access the Massachusetts Turnpike, Route 9, and the Hammond Pond Parkway. So, although it doesn’t have a downtown area or city center, travelling to Downtown Boston and other urban centers is easy and convenient.

Elegant, upscale living

Most of Newton’s neighborhoods are registered historic districts with unmatched ambiance and charm. This peaceful setting is underscored by the lush landscapes within its borders. Residents often stroll or jog along the trails of the Hammond Pond Reservation and the Lost Pond Conservation Area, a sylvan sanctuary known for its unique terrain of forest and peat bog. 

For those with more cosmopolitan tastes, Newton provides wonderful options for shopping and dining. Shop for brand-name clothing, jewelry, and home décor at Piccadilly Square in Newton Centre and The Shops at Chestnut Hill or have a relaxing Sunday brunch at world-class restaurants like Aquitaine Bistro

A wealth of luxury real estate

Newton’s housing market has a reputation of having steep prices and tight competition – and for good reason. Many of the city’s historic homes – particularly those built between the 1850s and the 1920s – are impeccably preserved, with their gently sloping landscapes and glacial-deposit stones still intact. 

Newton homes also come in a wide range of architectural styles, such as Colonial, Victorian, Georgian, and Tudor Revival. But there are also spacious, contemporary homes in more recent residential developments.

In Boston’s local real estate market, it’s best to work with an expert. You don’t need to look far as Jay Jentz can bring you the home and the lifestyle you deserve.
