The original capital of the Massachusetts Bay colony, Charlestown is steeped in New England history and has a charming housing stock to match. Charlestown has been the site of massive gentrification since the late 1980s due to its proximity to the City and its incredible, intact 19th-century architecture. With streets lined with neat, Federal, and Victorian style townhouses, the feel is reminiscent of Beacon Hill, especially as you climb the gently sloping streets leading to the Bunker Hill Monument.
Charlestown revels in its waterfront, perched on the banks of both the Boston Harbor and the Mystic River. MBTA transit on the orange line makes the city an easy commute, as does the close proximity of 93 South. Boston’s Logan International Airport is just minutes away.
New, concierge-style developments like Parris Landing and Flagship Wharf stand near charming single-family homes ranging from 1,000 to 6,000 square feet. Densely populated, upscale, and urban, Charlestown is often exactly what young and middle-aged professionals are looking for.
