View as Map

Let's take a moment to indulge in some lust-worthy mansions in the Boston area, shall we?

Less than eight miles west of downtown Boston lies a cluster of villages known collectively as Newton. What can you find there?

This week's open house tour takes you to a brand-new 6,500-square-feet home on a secluded cul-de-sac; a renovated colonial chocked full with old-world charm; and a brick English Tudor with quirky architectural elements around every corner.

Whether or not you are impressed by the grandeur of these mansions, the listing prices are quite impressive in their own sense, ranging from around $1.9M to a whooping $4.1M-plus. Take a peek inside while you can.
