Chestnut Hill Realty (CHR) celebrated the grand opening of Hancock Estates at Chestnut Hill luxury apartments with a gala ribbon cutting ceremony on July 31, 2018. In attendance at the event were Newton town officials, members of the business community, and the construction and design teams for the project. Comprising 88 elegantly appointed condo-quality apartment homes, occupancy levels for the spacious, sun-filled residences are well ahead of schedule. Residence features include high-end finishes, 10’ ceilings, hardwood floors, custom closets, keypad controlled lighting systems and spa-like bathrooms. Amenities include a concierge, secure package acceptance lockers, theater gaming room, community lounge, video conference room, activity room with kitchen, guest suite, fitness center, home office center and community garden. In honor of the project, the CHR donated $10,000 to two local charities - $5,000 to the Newton Schools Foundation, and $5,000 to Friends of Newton Tennis.
