Homes for Sale in Newton Highlands, Newton, MA

Newton Highland is a dainty neighborhood in the south-western region of Newton, MA. Commonwealth Avenue borders this community to the north, Beacon Street to the west, Boylston Street to the south, and Crystal Lake Beach to the east. New Highland’s district has always been a residential space, and it had the highest number of housing supply from 1874 to 1911. Newton Highland started to develop further because of the railroad service’s availability within the area. People began to come and go from the neighborhood, which slowly let other people know about Newton Highland’s beauty. Although it is small, it still houses 19th and 20th-century residences. The lovely town of Newton Highland is the historic center of Newton, MA. In 1986, the Newton Highlands Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places. This historic district starts from Lincoln Street, Woodward, to Hartford Streets. It also encompasses all of the blocks under Erie, Bowdoin, and Hartford Streets at the southern area of Lincoln Street. In 1990, the Newton Highland District was enlarged. It includes all of the commercial buildings found on Lincoln Street, right in the middle of Hartford and Walnut Streets.

What separates the houses from this town if compared to those houses in other neighborhoods is that they do not have the typical Victorian architectural design that most homes built from the 19th century have.

The typical price range of homes in the area is between $1.1 million to $4.5 million. Home builds include builds that feature three to six-bedroom with two to six-bathroom layouts.
