About Susan Mann

I am a social worker and my husband, Richard is a business man. I grew up in the greater Boston area and attended college at B.U. and Suffolk Univ. I have lived in Newton since 1969 and love the convenience and safety that Newton affords. Newton is known as the Garden City and for good reason. There are many flowering trees and shrubs throughout the city--It is a truly beautiful place. It is also a place where you can walk and run safely. Lately many bicycle lanes have been added. All this and so close to Boston. It only takes 15 minutes to get to Boston via the Express Bus which stops just one block from the property.

Because Rte 90 and 95 run through Newton you can also travel by car to either the beaches or mountains for scenic day trips very easily.

Susan Mann purchased this apartment in 1970

Why Susan Mann chose Newton

I love Victorian architecture and when I saw this property I fell in love. Typical Queen Anne design with period details. Angles and nooks and crannies, high ceilings, large windows and the feeling of space---priceless!!!

What makes this apartment unique

location and convenience are the true benefits. You can enjoy all the comforts of home and be close to the Arts, Historic places, Universities and the Ocean.

Also, my husband has installed interior Sound Proof Windows on all the windows in the house making the inside space like a museum.

Great House / Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

This is a "two-apartment" house (one up and one down), and this listing (and review) is for the lower apartment. I have stayed in the lower apartment twice, and it is clean, comfortable, well-appointed and in a great location. There is off-street parking in the driveway for at least one car per apartment. Getting to and from the airport is a breeze, as the entrance to I-90 is right around the corner. There is also a bus stop less than a block away for easy access to downtown, if you don't want to drive. Everything you need (grocery, coffee shops, dry cleaners, drug store) is right in the neighborhood, and it is perfect for people visiting students at Boston College. I have stayed in the upstairs apartment as well, and it is just as lovely and comfortable as the lower apartment with a tad bit more space. The owners always meet me at the house when I arrive, and they are great people. They have lived in this area for most of their lives, and they are extremely helpful in recommending attractions, restaurants and tips for getting around Boston. I highly recommend this wonderful rental!

Clean, comfortable

Was a bit far from where I was all day so I couldn't really appreciate the home since I got home late to sleep. Susan was very pleasant.

Loved the location, It was close to the highway and 10 min away to downtown Boston. So convenient!!

  • 5 of 5

The overall experience was amazing, Susan was polite, kind and lovely women and also her husband. The house was clean and so we'll kept with comfortable beds and nice furniture. Very peaceful neighborhood. I can't say anything bad, we were all pleased and if I return back to Boston will defiantly go back to this location.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

For historic building, house is kept and maintained amazingly. It's a pretty big one, with huge master bedroom with enclosed office space and another bedroom a little smaller, specious living room and separate kitchen with pretty new appliances. Backyard is a hit for morning coffee time and cosy evenings. Parking lot is a bonus. Last but not least, Susan and her assistant Peter were very accommodating in our requests.
