5R Salem Street, Charlestown

If I asked you to describe a quintessential Charlestown residence, this would be it! You really couldn't find a more charming home -- inside and out. I hope you'll check out the pix and 3D tour!

Your sanctuary awaits!

Nestled back from the street at the end of a gated, gas lit and flower-lined walkway, this charming 19th-century brick townhome is a true urban oasis! Loaded with historic Charlestown character in a move-in ready package, this 3-level home features gorgeous pumpkin pine floors, exposed brick, stained glass, lots of built ins, and a beamed kitchen ceiling, not to mention a private enclosed patio with garden area AND an amazing roof deck with 360 degree city views. Laundry is in the basement, along with a new boiler and plenty of storage. Situated on a one-way side street right off Main with easy access to Charlestown’s many great restaurants, cafes, and parks. Whole Foods plaza is just two blocks away and the Orange Line T at Community College is less than a half mile.

So much to love about this vibrant neighborhood!

  • To name just a few of the many great local restaurants -- Figs by Todd English, Tangierino, Brewer's Fork, Pier 6

  • Grocery shopping couldn't be more convenient with Whole Foods just two blocks away (there's also a CVS and Ace Hardware there too)!

  • If you prefer your produce locally sourced, check out Charlestown's seasonal farmers market

  • Breakfast, anyone? Your neighbor Zume's Coffee House has you covered -- or try out the recently-opened Mister Q's Cafe

  • Drink your pints where George Washington and Paul Revere once did at The Warren Tavern -- the oldest pub in Massachusetts, dating to 1780

  • Great neighborhood walks through Monument Square's gas light district and the Navy Yard's waterfront

  • Bunker Hill Monument -- explore the museum or just enjoy the park

  • Easy bike and pedestrian access to the North End via the Charlestown Bridge, and to Cambridge via the North Bank Bridge from Paul Revere Park
