Property Remarks

Very unique, one of a kind house in a beautiful setting that will make you feel like you are away on vacation every time you come home! The 2 story passive solar construction with floor to ceiling windows brings the outdoors inside. You will never get tired of the view. Another "green" feature of the house is the solar water heater. This home has all amenities on the main floor with 3 more bedrooms and a full bath and library in the 2nd floor loft. There is also a main floor office space with its own exterior door onto the deck. You will love working in this kitchen that was completely redone in 2010. There is plenty of cabinet space even though there are windows where you would ordinarily have upper cabinets. The large island makes entertaining in this space very natural. You will enjoy spending time relaxing out on the wrap around deck. For peace of mind, there is a storm shelter room attached to the garage.

Newton's 19,500 residents enjoy small town living with easy access to all the amenities of the metropolitan area.

TRANSPORTATION

Major highways (I-135US-50US-81K-15), an airport, and the BNSF Railway make Newton a central location for easy transportation. Amtrak's Southwest Chief stops in Newton twice each day and provides passenger rail service towards Los Angeles and Chicago. The Amtrak station has an enclosed waiting area with accessible platform and wheelchair available.

Newton City/County Airport is located 2 miles east of Newton.

Spend a day exploring museums, stroll through some shops, see a show or walk along the bike path. 

Sand Creek Station Golf Course, praised as being the 24th best municipal course you can play in the Nation by Golf Week Magazine, is a links-style 18-hole public gold course with a bent grass playing surface designed by architect Jeff Brauer. Unique features include an active railway running through the course. Sand Creek borders four holes, and eleven custom ponds. 

HISTORY

Newton, the county seat, was a hub of the Santa Fe Railroad. Due to Newton promoter John C. Nicholson, the city was also at the crossroads of two major highways—81 and 50. The town founded in 1871 was named after Newton, Massachusetts, home of some of the Santa Fe stockholders.

The earliest settlers saw the movement of great herds of cattle to Abilene through the area that was to become Newton. The town became a dynamic railhead when the Santa Fe Railroad, building track from Emporia, met the Chisholm Trail. Longhorn cattle from Texas were shipped to the east coast from Newton between 1871 and 1873. With a mix of cowboys, saloons and brothels, Newton became known as “the wickedest town in the West.”
