Henry Hodson House

We walked this neighborhood in Newton, Mass., last fall, and so much of this house was hidden by foliage that we had to revisit it before spring bloomed.

But guess what? Turns out their trees are in bloom all year long, so the full effect of this house facade is always hidden.

Lucky for us, it’s super cool from several angles, boasting awesome patterns and textures in one of our favorite hues.

By the mid 1880s, the Newton Highlands was becoming a bustling community, with Lincoln Street being well developed due to its proximity to stores, commuter railroad and churches. Built in 1886-1888, this house belonged to an elderly gentleman named Henry Hodson, and the house is named for him.

It’s got seven bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms and more than 3000 square feet. According to a 2014 real estate listing, its woodwork, hardwood floors and archways are all original to the house. It also has two living rooms, and multiple fireplaces.

It sold in 2014 for $1.06 million.
