Heartbreak Hill, Newton MA Boston MarathonHeartbreak Hill, Newton MA Location, Location. Any runner knows this stretch of road through beautiful Newton on the way to the finish line of the famed Boston Marathon.  A turn East onto Beacon Street off Centre Street begins the trek up.  The homes that line Beacon Street are beautiful and stately. The hill is not really a true hill, but the heartbreak is that it goes on for many, many, many blocks until you pass Boston College and head into Boston itself near Cleveland Circle.  At this point twenty plus miles into this world class marathon you may be running on fumes unless you are one of the many elite runners of this race each year.

114 Shornecliffe Road, Newton MA 02458

114 Shornecliffe Road, Newton MA 02458The slower runners, the runners who are completing their bucket list by running will have time to see the individual faces of the people of Newton and the homes in which they live.  Beautiful green lawns, powerful Colonial, Federal, Tudor homes slowly pass your view up this hill.  The hill is a problem for the sometimes runners because by this point your quadriceps are rebelling.  Lifting your legs for another stride becomes more difficult as the rise increases up Beacon Street.

Residents of Newton are blessed by the opportunity to run this route casually each day.  The main street has a parallel street that is used by the locals. It is perfect for running, walking, biking or just pushing a stroller along this route.  114 Shornecliffe Road, Newton MA 02458 is a short distance west of this street.  A quieter neighborhood in Farlow Hill, one of the three most desired neighborhoods in which to live in Newton.  These homes are large and have stood the test of time.  Shornecliffe was built in 1911 but it has been upgraded with the latest technologies and amenities. MLS #: 71746470, 6810 sq ft, 5 bed, 4.5 bath, 3 car garage and an immaculate Classical Revival architecture that includes both the formal and an addition that is a light filled open space area for today's living.

Jeff Dowler CRS The possibility of a quick sale boat has long sailed, but that is always true of this price point. I am looking for someone who loves this home.

Larry Lawfer - maybe after Easter the sun will melt away some of the snow and people will start looking at big homes in Newton - I went to Beaver Country Day for two years so I remember those lovely homes well.  They are such a joy to visit. I am crossing my fingers that the buyer will turn up soon.
