Uncover the Best of Allston Real Estate

The available Allston homes for sale reside in one of the more established Boston neighborhoods. Long the haven for a plethora of students each year, the community is especially popular to this segment of the population due to a close proximity to both Boston University and Boston College. This traditional association has given rise to the “student ghetto” nickname. "Allston Christmas" is also the name given to the days leading up the September 1st move-in day for many students. These are the days you'll find many students moving out to make way for incoming students. Numerous items will inevitably be left on the curb, free for the picking. 

This has changed in the past few decades. An influx of young working professionals and families has changed the character of the neighborhood to a degree. These new residents are less interested in renting homes for a semester or two and more interested in purchasing.

As a more established area of Boston, the northern portions of the neighborhood is epitomized by brick apartment buildings, many along Commonwealth Avenue. Many of these buildings have been remodeled and updated inside while preserving the historic character of the exterior. Allston condos in these types of buildings are the most common property type north of the highway.

Lucky and interested homebuyers can glimpse of early century Boston with one of the remaining Triple-deckers. These iconic buildings of a bygone era will usually feature an apartment on each floor, but many have been converted.

In the southern sections of the Allston neighborhood you’ll find a larger concentration of single-family homes. Many of these homes still retain a historic character like the rest of the community, showcasing a distinctive Victorian style. Although the character of the neighborhood is a bit older than some areas of Boston, redevelopment is on its way. Like any established city across the eastern seaboard, new construction and infills have crept into these more established areas.

The Thriving Allston Community Lifestyle

Named for painter Washington Allston, the Allston neighborhood's dynamic, young population of working professionals and students have attracted a vibrant and hip business community. Numerous trendy boutiques, cafes, restaurants and bars have sprung up to cater to this younger demographic. The community is a favorite for residents across the city - the neighborhood's murals and dynamic food scene is a huge draw!

Allston is also a great choice for the working professional and younger families. The downtown core of Boston is just a short commute away and Branch B of the Green Line runs right along Commonwealth Avenue with a stop in Allston.

The area is wonderfully bordered to the north by the Charles River. The beautiful waterfront area is a very popular hotspot, great for a morning run or an evening walk with the family. The riverfront area also features Artesani Park and Playground, which provides a wealth of outdoor activities for all ages, including sports fields and a playground.

With so much variety to offer, it’s easy to see why many homebuyers choose to make this lovely neighborhood their home. To start your real estate search in Allston, contact Terrier Real Estate today! Their Boston REALTORS® are here to help.
