At less than 1,000 square feet, this brick duplex manages to pack in several high-end amenities—and, of course, a healthy dose of historical charm. Built in 1790, the Charlestown abode was once part of an inn along a stagecoach route.

The home maintains original details like dark-stained wide-pine flooring, wooden shutters, and chair rail moldings. There’s a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, and during warmer weather, you can unwind on the private patio lit by the soft glow of gas lamps. The place boasts modern luxuries, too, like a Viking gas range, Miele refrigerator, and a Miele dishwasher in the kitchen. The property is topped off with a more than 500-square-foot walk-up attic for storage.
