On the north side of Boston, Massachusetts, you’ll find a historic community called Charlestown. Charlestown sits on the banks of the Mystic River and Boston Harbor and has a deep Naval history and Irish roots. Among the many important landmarks you’ll find in Charlestown are the Freedom Trail, the Charlestown Navy Yard, the Bunker Hill Monument, and the U.S.S. Constitution. While the population has been traditionally Irish, young professionals and immigrants have joined the community contributing to its diversity. In fact, in City Square, and along Main Street you’ll see people of all ages at the restaurants and local shops.
Charlestown is a small and genuinely unique area within the big city. Like many other Boston neighborhoods, Charleston has a deep Revolutionary War history, having served as not only a meeting place for historical figures but also a battleground. As a result, the area is full of plaques and landmarks, in addition to the before-mentioned Freedom Trail. While the neighborhood doesn’t have the grit portrayed in the film The Town, it also hasn’t been entirely overtaken by high-earning young professionals, either. That said, families and young professionals do comprise a large part of the population. Furthermore, the area has an old-world charm that is comparable to Beacon Hill and Back Bay, yet the real estate in Charlestown comes at the fraction of the price of those neighborhoods.
Charlestown real estate consists of historic, brick, single-family homes, as well as modern condos with high-end finishes. There are also luxurious waterfront homes in Charlestown, as well as antique wood-frame townhomes on gas lamp-lit streets. Many of the small, historic multi-family properties in Charlestown have been recently converted to show-stopping, high-end condominiums. Additionally, it is one of the few remaining parts of Boston that has spacious two- and three-bedroom homes and condos at reasonable prices. That said, as a result of the diversity of Charlestown properties, there is a broad range of listing prices.
