224 Elliot Street, Newton Upper Falls
The owners of 224-226 Elliot Street have approvals to develop a living unit in a "barn" style, to be attached
to the existing house at 226 Elliot Street, Newton Upper Falls. The house at the front is an 1830s Cape
Cod-style house with early Greek Revival details at the entry. It has been extensively updated as a single-
family unit in 2004.
The Barn is to be constructed at the rear, to create the second of two units of a condominium complex.
Each will have its own exclusive use of part of the site. Each will have a separate parking area, and each
will have its own yard. The owner of each is responsible for the maintenance of the part of the property
(building and site) for which it has exclusive use. The buildings are in the "connected building" New
England style of the 1800s, in which a house at the front is connected to its barn in the rear by way of a
"little house" (here, the one-story ell). New garden plantings are by Newton garden designer Beth
Schroeder, making use of species in use in the 1830s in local gardens.
