North End Home Blends History and Hip

5 Tileston Place, North End

A 2000 renovation of one of the North End’s few remaining 18th-century clapboard wood-frame houses, 5 Tileston Place is not only hip with history, but also mod with modern. Offered at $1,295,000, this 1,940-square-foot, 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath townhouse condo shows how cool colonial can still be.

Just look at what this old house has to offer: a private electric gate entrance, spacious and detailed rooms, eat-in kitchen, four working fireplaces — they sure needed them in those cold colonial times when no one had thought of central heating, which 5 Tileston Place also has, as well as central air, vac, and audio/visual intercom.

And look what it’s got down under: a family/media room (or home office) fully wired for cable and Internet, just like the rest of the residence.

And look what’s upstairs: a master bedroom that’s cozy and king-size at the same time, boasting a master bath with Jacuzzi and steam shower. The colonial-style louver wood shutters pay tribute to the house’s heritage and enhance the bedroom’s under-the-roof intimacy.

Dig those decks! The two decks have ample space for cocktails, cookouts and corporate functions but are sequestered by the coziness of the North End’s old narrow streets and alleyways, bringing history home again.

And Hub history is a heartbeat away. Right next door are the Paul Revere Mall and Old North Church, where two lanterns were hung from the belfry to alert patriots of the British approach by sea prior to Revere’s historic Midnight Ride to Lexington on April 18-19, 1775. More neighborhood history is steps away at the Paul Revere House and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground.
