The George W. Eddy House is a historic house at 85 Bigelow Road in Newton, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story stucco-clad house was built in 1913 for George W. Eddy, a merchant, to a design by the noted area firm of Chapman & Frazer. It is Newton's finest example of Craftsman styling; its slate hip roof includes curved sections above paired windows, a detail that is repeated in dormers that pierce the roof. A shed-style roof along a portion of the main facade shelters a recessed main entrance, whose flanking sidelight windows contain leaded glass.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]
