Living with the Millionaires, Newton MA. The Boston Globe ran some articles yesterday in their regional sections showing where all the Millionaires live. As is typical of the Globe, while their statistics shown were most likely accurate, they missed showing any median, a more important statistic. So Newton which is a larger town in population than Weston or Wellesley shows more millionaires, but that does not mean the average person in Newton is wealthier than those in Cohassett, or Westwood, or Weston or Boston’s Back Bay.
Newton has around 85,000 residents. It is a town made up of 13 villages with each village having it’s own distinct center and culture. They meld together perfectly, but they retain their individual flavors. The most desired ares for the
millionaires are three, Farlow Hill, West Newton Hill and Chestnut Hill. 114 Shornecliffe Road is in Newton Corner, right on the edge of Newton Center and sits atop Farlow Hill. The street grows more luxurious as it goes up. 114 Shornecliffe is near the top of the hill and this beautiful and elegant Classical Revival house sits above the rest. Out the third floor windows you see well south into neighboring towns in the distance. The windows are large unlike new construction windows and well insulated.
Upgrades to these older homes come in varieties of technology. This particular home is upgraded with new technologies like the Smart House system for running your utilities and media as well as a 3 car garage, not common with these older homes. Newton does have a great deal of millionaires and many of them live on this street, but you certainly won’t ever feel left out. This is a truly open community with a great deal of culture, diversity and range of professions. It is an inclusive community. Newton is readying for a 57 event Arts Festival during the entire month of May. The Newton Festival of the Arts is a collection of talent and diversity. It is truly wonderful Living with the Millionaires, Newton MA
