In one of the area's big sales, 129 West Newton St. in the South End sold on May 31 for $3,672,000.

The new owners of this home will enjoy 3,476 square feet of living space. It includes three gorgeous bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths.

This townhouse also has a lot of history. It was originally built in 1875 – just 10 short years after the Civil War.

The location has a feel of the suburbs, located on a relatively peaceful tree-lined street.

Entering into the home is like walking into another era with its wonderfully wide-open parlor with a beautiful sweeping staircase, soaring ceilings and gleaming hardwood floors.

The classic bow front living room has a nice gas fireplace, significant and dignified moldings and pocket doors leading to rear study. The study has an old world feeling to it with its dignified custom paneling, built-ins and a sunny bay window.

The street level features a spacious formal dining room, great for hosting plenty of guests. There is also a fabulous center-island kitchen with cherry cabinets, marble and stainless steel counters and a breakfast bar.

Sliding doors lead to lovely rear deck, a great place to enjoy the outdoors on those warm summer days and nights.

Downstairs is a great family room and mirrored exercise room to work off all the delicious food prepared and served up stairs. The level also includes a full bath plus a door to a parking area for two vehicles.

This home is definitely not stuck in the past. The 21st century is alive and well represented with a Creston lighting, sound and video system throughout.

The upper two floors include the full floor master suite with amazing marble bath plus two massive walk-in closets. The penthouse level offers two extra large bedrooms, full bath and plenty of closet space.

The new owners will also enjoy a roof deck with panoramic views of the always-wonderful city skyline and the area around them. This deck is accessible via a full staircase.
