Allston Real Estate

Allston is a vibrant neighborhood in Boston bordering the Charles River and adjacent to the Brighton neighborhood, with which it is often combined. One of the most student-dominated zip codes in the city, Allston has no lack of hip restaurants and coffee shops to serve its 30,000 residents. The neighborhood also houses a number of music clubs and concert venues.

With the development of the Green District in 2014, Allston has slowly shifted from a student-friendly area to become home for more working professionals based on its easy commutes and relative affordability. The Green District includes three luxury buildings that are specifically designed to be eco-friendly as well as feature ultra-modern design. Lower Allston is the area north of the turnpike and is a quieter neighborhood, comprising young professionals and many members of the educational community because of its close proximity to Cambridge.

Housing stock ranges from brick apartment buildings on Commonwealth Avenue to wooden triple-deckers and single family and multi-family Victorian homes in Lower Allston.  Read more about Allston real estate.

More About Allston Real Estate

 Allston Location

Allston borders the Boston neighborhoods of Fenway/Kenmore, Brighton as well as the City of Brookline. Allston also follows the Charles River on the east and to the north with the City of Cambridge easily accessible via several bridges. The B Branch of the Green Line is the most visible commuter option, running through Allston along Commonwealth Avenue. The Red Line is accessible via Harvard Square and the Boston Landing Commuter Rail station is located in the neighborhood. Lower Allston offers access to Route 2, the Mass Pike, and Storrow Drive.

Allston History

The Allston community developed around railroad and livestock operations in the 1800s and is also home to many immigrant populations, including groups from Russia, East Asia, and South America. Much of Allston’s early railroad is in use today as the CSX Transportation Beacon Park Yard but all livestock operation ended in the mid-20th century. The neighborhood draws its name from the painter, Washington Allston, who lived and worked across the Charles River in Cambridge.

In the early 1970s members of the band Aerosmith occupied the second floor of 1325 Commonwealth Avenue and wrote and practiced many of their early songs together there.
