This home was built for Elbridge Newton, a graduate of Tufts University who produced music textbooks as a music editor and resided at his home until his death in 1940. Elbridge is said to have been the agent who sold many of the lots along Westwood Road, likely due to his connections with wealthy individuals in Boston, Cambridge and Somerville.
The home is a transitional Colonial Revival, Queen Anne and Shingle style home. The cross-gambrel house features a conical tower at the side which has multiple stained glass windows. The amazing front porch is supported by Tuscan columns and has been restored by 2012 by the owners.
