Charlestown Townhouse Shines – Boston Herald
Is the townhouse the unsung hero of real estate in Boston? For buyers looking for single-family square footage with less hassle, a townhouse offers both.
Occupying a prime location in Charlestown, 464 Medford St. was built in 2007 and Unit B is an immaculate condominium townhouse with all modern fixtures, space, a patio and – wait – a garage. Not only that, but the townhouse offers it all close to historic Bunker Hill, Charleston restaurants, and a jump to Boston and I-93.
The elevator-free unit could easily compete with any condo and single family home in Charlestown, offering 1,550 square feet over two floors. What does this mean in concrete terms? The townhouse benefits from an open floor plan on the first level while the upper level houses two generous bedrooms. And nothing seems crowded.
In the living room, a gas fireplace flanked by a pair of living room windows and a bank of three windows signify an abundance of natural light. Glass sliders on the townhouse’s private patio light up the modern dining room and kitchen. The latter has plenty of storage, an island for eating and stainless steel appliances. And, while it might seem trivial, the half bath here makes a difference – who likes to climb stairs?
An oversized master bedroom with high ceilings – another rarity in Charlestown – can easily accommodate a home office or reading nook. A guest bedroom with a large dressing room, another full bathroom and a laundry room complete the second level.
The opening hours are from noon to 1 p.m. on Friday and from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Saturday. The townhouse sale, in the market for $ 1,025,000, is represented by Tia Zaferakis with Jack Conway Cityside, 617-699-6268.
