Occupying an attractive setting in the heart of a residential neighborhood of gracious Tudor-style homes, this stately landmark is an architectural keystone of the surrounding area. Originally constructed in 1931 as a junior high school, Weeks House was beautifully rehabbed in 1984, retaining important historic features. The building, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, features 45 one bedroom apartment homes (34 of which are income restricted) and 22 two-bedroom apartment homes for older adults and persons with disabilities, and 8 spacious three-bedroom apartments for income qualifying families. Select units are adapted to accommodate individuals with physical disabilities and/or mobility impairments. Major updates in 2018 included a new roof, windows and exterior doors, as well as masonry repairs.

This non-smoking community, situated on beautifully maintained, landscaped grounds, includes an attractive lobby with a three-story sunlit atrium and tastefully appointed shared spaces for community gatherings. The property is adjacent to municipal recreational fields and tennis courts, and is less than one mile to the MBTA, shopping and dining in Newton Centre.
