http://www.NedMahoney.com - Originally a mill village on the Charles River, Newton Upper Falls is tucked into a potpourri of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century architecture and a major National Historic Landmark— Echo Bridge--over the Charles River's Hemlock Gorge. Today, a large portion of the village is protected as a designated historic district. A sampling of antique buildings throughout the neighborhood offers a genuine feel of the fabric of an early-Newton Upper Falls. Home to the Hemlock Gorge and Echo Bridge, a large aqueduct turned pedestrian walkway over the Charles River. It is said to be the only village that has retained its original name from when the area was founded in the 17th century. It has over 150 homes on the historic register despite its small area.
Charm and character abound in this early American colonial home with both Victorian and contemporary flair. Set among the tree-tops with incredible views of the Historic Echo Bridge and acres of conservation land, the Upper Falls Village of Newton Massachusetts is indeed a hidden jewel.
Despite all of its connection to the past, the property is ideally located just minutes from route 9, route 128 and the Massachusetts turnpike. Just a short walk to the Eliot Green Line T stop makes a commute by public transportation to Boston a breeze. Easy living in this comfortable setting also offers some outstanding neighborhood shops and restaurants.
