Forty The Ledges Road (not a typo) unfolds over nearly 2 acres, including an 8,745-square-foot mansion with a dining room fit for a banquet and not one, but two family rooms. It hit the sales market on Sept. 6.
The listing price was $6,500,000, making 40 The Ledges the priciest home for sale in Newton's many villages, $100,000 ahead of the 7,544-square-footer at 134 Chestnut Hill Road. The 6-BR, with six full bathrooms and three halves and with bones in the 1880s, last traded as recently as January 2012 for $5,500,000. Does a recent renovation justify the $1M bump? Or did the new buyer get it for nearer the last closing price? Stay tuned.
