This gilded parlor isn’t home to royalty, but it might as well could be. The regal residence for sale—found inside of a brick townhouse in Charlestown—is overflowing with elegant original details, from the entryway to the gourmet chef’s kitchen.

Upon entering, visitors can ascend the grand staircase (clad in raised panel mahogany wainscoting, of course) to find a total of six marble mantels, plaster ceiling medallions with chandeliers, cornice moldings, and other architectural delights throughout. There’s also a drawing room with a piano alcove, as well as a library and a formal dining room.

Outside, the brick courtyard is pleasant enough, but it’s the home’s roof deck that steals the show. The more than 300-square-foot deck showcases unparalleled views of the Bunker Hill Monument and the city skyline.
