Newton Upper Falls is a village located on the east banks of the Charles River in Newton MA. Newton Upper Falls is bordered by Needham in the south and Wellesley to the west. It is located just a few miles outside of downtown Boston. The village is served by the Green Line, and has easy access to Route 128 and Route 9, which serves as a direct five mile drive to downtown Boston.
The village here has a lot of history, in fact Lower Falls has a Historic District. As I mentioned before about the village of Auburndale, you should be careful when buying a property located within a historic district because there are some added responsibilities and restrictions that one needs to know about before deciding to buy here. The house must be maintained to a higher standard and not changed (even the color of the paint-without permission from the committee) in any way. The property must keep with the style and detail of the period to maintain consistency with the other structures etc.
There are many multifamily homes in the area, condos and single family homes too. Prices for purchase or rentals tend to be lower in this part of Newton. I haven’t been really able to come to a definitive conclusion on why though. Maybe it’s the radio towers along the highway or the city truck lot and maintenance yard. But I lived in this area of Newton for over 3 years and found it to be a very nice home. People are very friendly, it’s close to the T and highways, parks too.
There is a Catholic Church on Elliot Street and the 59 bus will bring you to Newton Highlands or the Dedham Mall. Some great restaurants are dotted throughout Upper Falls, Dunn Gaherins Irish Pub, The Biltmore Bar & Grill, Green Tea and a number of other small sub and pizza shops.
Echo Bridge is also a great place to take a walk or have a picnic.
