The bones of the 13-room, 5,116-square-foot colonial at 8 Birch Hill Road in Newton’s Newtonville area date from 1891. The house has been scrupulously maintained and updated, though, and is on sale now for $2.795 million.
It comes with five fireplaces and a partially finished lower level, plus a sizable yard with a bluestone patio. There is the potential for seven bedrooms (!) and the house contains three and a half bathrooms.
Coldwell Banker has the listing, which assures buyers of a “cozy library.” Take a look.
