Top 5 Most Expensive Homes in Needham, MA

Massachusetts: home to the best sport’s teams, most prestigious schools, and some of the most expensive real estate in the nation. You’ll find Needham just east of Newton, Massachusetts’s wealthiest city. With an average home price of over a million dollars, more than double the state average, Needham is far from overshadowed.

Always growing, Needham is packed with new construction homes. The first property on our list is one, and it’s move in ready. You’ll find a bonus in this list, a new construction home at the bottom of this post that you’ll definitely want to hear about, so stick around!

5. 44 Nevada Road

Price Tag: $2,295,000 

Built in 2019, this property is hosted by nearly a quarter of an acre of land. A level lot and a backyard with so much room for activities, invite everyone you know to your move-in BBQ and break out the ladder toss. Found in a renowned school district, this twelve-room home couldn’t be more perfect for a family. With twelve rooms, a fully finished lower level, and loads of natural light, this home is the perfect balance between luxury and minimalism.

4. 1622 Great Plain Ave

Price Tag: $2,295,000

You’ll find this contemporary colonial fits 5,250 square feet on almost half an acre of land, and still we see a driveway and sprawling backyard that could team up for much better BBQs. Where to start? Marble bathrooms with a shower spacious enough for water polo, or maybe the multiple fireplaces. If you’re tasked with picking your favorite part of this property, best of luck to you.

3. 389 Grove Street

Price Tag: $2,385,000

And I quote, “Sun-splashed, fireplaced living room with soaring ceilings and french doors opening to stone patio. Formal dining room with adjoining built in bar, spacious sun room overlooking stunning gardens, stone walls and pool.” Wait until you see the landscaping that the birds-eye-view drone shot couldn’t even capture all of, and maybe check out the interior afterwards. The stone bridge over the pond leads me to believe someone must have an affinity towards English gardens. Also towards spiral staircases, which we support wholeheartedly.

2. 150 South Street

Price Tag: $2,400,000

This home, get this, was once part of the N.C. Wyeth family compound! To say it’s “steeped in history” is one thing, but to see and feel it for yourself is another. Immense wealth and acute attention to the importance of beauty in our homes. Both are visible in the character of the family that brought this beast to life. “Beast” is the most accurate word, as it’s almost intimidating that such a feat was managed into becoming what we see today. Leaded glass windows. English oak wood reclaimed from a Beacon Hill estate. If your family hasn’t been generationally wealthy for the last couple centuries, this home will fool the best of them. If it has, you’ll feel right at home.

1. 1297 Central Ave

Price Tag: $2,500,000

If you’re going to click any photo on this list, make it this one. The Mary Poppins bag on our list, you might get lost in this almost 7,300 square foot estate. You can see the potential of this new renovation in the virtual tour, which is a journey when you have over an acre of land at your disposal. Twelve rooms, chef’s kitchen, a basement with nine-foot-higg ceilings, and a library. The photos, the tour… this property speaks for itself.

BONUS: 27 Belle Lane

Our bonus home is currently under construction. Custom designed by Michael McKay, sitting on 1.8 acres, you’re looking at over 8,000 square feet of living space. Fifteen rooms sitting heavily at the end of a private way cul-de-sac, this monolith is a testament to what success brings– like an in-home theatre, or maybe a library. No need to choose, this house has both, as well as an au pair suite, formal living and dining rooms, and almost as many garage stalls as there are bathrooms, and there are a lot of bathrooms. A stunning master suite, one of many bedrooms decorates the interior, and, not last or least, a bonus room above the garage waiting for further finishing instructions from whoever’s finds themselves lucky enough to sign for this titan. 

Clocking in with a Price Tag of $3,595,000, it would have topped our list if it were move in ready. Construction is expected to finish this year, 2020, and in addition to customizing the bonus room, buyers even still have time to pick colors, finishes, and amenities. 

All of these manors are currently for sale! If you’re interested in these, or any other properties, reach out to us here at Castles Unlimited. We’re eager to help and look forward to hearing from you!
