Suburban Living in the Heart of Charlestown
3 bedroom/3 bathroom townhouse
For buyers looking for a family-friendly city living option, Charlestown is an obvious choice for several reasons. Charlestown’s small 1 square mile footprint is conducive to a small town community culture where you get to know your neighbors and local business owners. Charlestown is also home to some of Boston’s best public schools like the Warren Prescott School, alleviating the concerns of some parents about the quality of the city’s public schools. Along with the quality schooling, come many recreational and cultural opportunities for both children and adults. The classic row homes in Charlestown are also very appealing in that they provide single family dwellings in a city dominated by two and three family homes or large complexes.
This historical home on Warren St. is a wonderful example of what Charlestown has to offer buyers. Built in 1837 in the Gas Light District, this townhouse has a single family feel with its private entrance. The home has been through a meticulous renovation and restoration. The owners worked to preserve stunning period details such as the wide plank pine flooring and four original fireplaces (including one in the bathroom!). At the same time, they upgraded with modern amenities including central air and a remodeled kitchen with a wine fridge.
The home features a traditional layout over 1800 square feet. The first floor includes the expected living room, dining room, and kitchen. Two bedrooms are found on the second floor and the third floor features the master bedroom and a loft office space. Each floor of the home is conveniently complete with a bathroom. You’ll also truly enjoy the outdoor spaces as the home boasts two decks and a half yard available for purchase–an almost unheard of luxury in city living!
Yet another desirable attribute of Charlestown is the ability to walk nearly everywhere you need to go. Some of the best shopping and dining in the city can be found on Charlestown’s streets. Literally one block away from this home is a wonderful Moroccan restaurant, Tangerino (www.tangerino.com). When you enter this unique spot, you’ll quickly understand why it has been voted both the “most romantic” and “most exotic” restaurant for ten years now. Painted a deep red color and flooded with dramatic draperies, you can’t help but be swept away into another world upon entering. The food is sublime, the belly dancers entertaining, and the vibe–truly special. If shopping is more your bag, don’t miss Olivia Browning in City Square (www.oliviabrowning.com). This little shop is THE place to go when gift buying. They offer uniqe gifts for everyone from kids to your grandparents. (I especially love their kitchen supplies and cooking accessories).
