In the market for a single family home in the Boston area?

While “Newton” and “mansions” are usually mentioned in the same sentence, it’s also a great place to look for single-family homes priced below the stratosphere.

This weekend’s open house tour features houses that offer ample space you never knew you needed—not to mention different architectural styles such as Colonials, Tudors, and contemporaries.

Only seven miles west of Boston, Newton might feel like a world away and that could be a good thing. Get moving.
