Pleasant unit in peaceful neighborhood

Built in 1989 in the gambrel colonial style for which Charlestown is historically known, 7 Pleasant St. contains a 1,207-square-foot, 2-bed, 1.5-bath duplex unit that takes you back to colonial times with its architectural details, hardwood floors, private garden, historic neighborhood, and overall sense of the whole-house independence of Boston’s founding days.

That sense of independence is evident in Unit 7‘s first-floor living room. You have direct, sunny views of Pleasant Street through new thermal windows with old-fashioned plantation shutters, and your own woodburning brick fireplace, surrounded by a wood mantel crafted in fine colonial tradition.

That spirit of ’76 continues in the formal dining room with a deep red wall treatment, a chair rail, wainscoting, a chandelier, a crown molding and more plantation shutters.

The kitchen is colonial and contemporary combined, appointed with classic custom cabinetry, granite counters and state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances.

The carpeted bedrooms are at garden level for cozy warmth but still have plenty of square footage and ceiling height for a comfortable living-sleeping arrangement.

The private garden patio is generously built in with flower planters, paved with brick-hued terra cotta tiles for a Beacon Hill feel, and charmingly surrounded by a picket fence for that old home look.

Located in Charlestown‘s Gaslight Historic District, 7 Pleasant St. is steps away from some of the neighborhood’s most historic sites. Right down Pleasant Street is the Warren Tavern. Founded in 1780, it is Massachusetts’ oldest tavern, and was a favorite watering hole of the likes of Paul Revere, Benjamin Franklin and George Washington.

Right up Pleasant Street is the Bunker Hill Monument, the tall granite obelisk marking the site of the Battle of Bunker Hill on June 17, 1775. Also in the neighborhood are Element Day Spa, Tangierino Restaurant, Sorelle Bakery & Cafe, Tedeschi Food Shop in Thompson Square, Charlestown Nursery School, Bunker Hill Community College, and MBTA Orange Line subway service at Community College station.
