Description: An antique in the Charlestown section of Boston, this brick townhouse was built in 1870. Its location on a quiet, dead-end just across the Charles from the city's financial and historic districts is ideal and the neighborhood is a combination of old Boston Irish and new upwardly mobile urban professionals.
The house, big for inner city Boston, has been modernized - there is central air and a bath on every floor - but it retains many of its original details. It has two working fireplaces and a master suite featuring floor-to-ceiling windows.
It also boasts a thoroughly updated kitchen with custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The basement has been fitted out as a media room, complete with bar.
