In downtown Gloucester, with the harbor and commuter rail nearby, this townhouse from 1929 has original features that the hottest South End new-builds can’t replicate. With three levels, the condo has oak flooring, dark-framed windows, and standout built-in cabinetry throughout—even in the hallways. A stone fireplace and wood details are the highlight of the living room, and the kitchen has a butler’s pantry with original tile work. The second floor has a private master suite and study, and the third floor has two additional bedrooms with slanted ceiling and charming windows. A deck and hidden courtyard complete the property.
