Arthur F. Luke House is a historic house at 221 Prince Street in Newton, Massachusetts. The house, which is 2 1/2 stories high, is built in a rustic Craftsman style. It is topped by a hip roof with three cross gables across the facade. It has two fieldstone chimneys which provide a rustic effect. A verandah extends from the entry to the right side of the house, enging up in a pergola-type arbor.[2] The house was built in 1909 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]

Arthur F. Luke was senior manager of the National Tube Company and the son of James Luke (October 22, 1823 - December 14, 1899).[3]
