Charlestown bowfront penthouse a Boston Brahmin bonanza

Is Beacon Hill beyond your budget?

Would the Back Bay break your bank account?

Would the South End soak your savings?

Is a bowfront penthouse in a historic neighborhood still your dreamboat?

Don’t give up the ship just yet.

Just check out the 880-square-foot, 2-bedroom Unit 3 at 88 Russell St. in Charlestown, where a mere $379,000 will treat you to many of the luxuries found in all of the above: oversized windows, gleaming hardwood floors, exposed brick walls, a woodburning fireplace, an updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a private deck with breathtaking city views, exclusive roof rights, in-unit washer/dryer, deeded basement storage, and more.

The living-dining room has many of the familiar features of a first-class Beacon Hill, Back Bay or South End home: a hardwood floor, a crown molding, ample light, a woodburning fireplace, an open floor plan, a pass-through to the kitchen, and two sliders to…

…your private deck, where the city of Boston unfolds before you and exposed brick walls bring a little Beacon Hill into your cocktail party, morning coffee or Sunday paper relaxation.

The pass-through to the kitchen is conveniently located over the kitchen sink for ease of after-dinner cleanup. Bull-nose granite counters, paneled white custom cabinetry, and new stainless steel appliances bring class to your cuisine.

The master bedroom takes full advantage of the bowfront for expanded space, light and elegance.

The sunny neighborhood of historic homes and friendly neighbors is surrounded by a rich array of amenities, including Edwards Playground, Doherty Park (designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, architect of Boston’s Emerald Necklace and New York’s Central Park), Clarence R. Edwards Middle School, and especially the Bunker Hill Monument, marking the site of the historic Battle of Bunker Hill on June 17, 1775.
