The House at 2212 Commonwealth Avenue, in the Auburndale section of Newton, Massachusetts, is a rare local example of domestic Gothic Revival architecture. The two story wood frame house was built c. 1845, and is distinguished by its board-and-batten siding, oriel window, crenellated porch decoration, and bracketing in the eaves.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
