On the Market: A Home for a Green-Thumbed History Buff
43 Park Street, Charlestown
Size: 2,219 square feet
Private garden space in the city is hard to come by—but this Federal-style abode circa 1840 boasts a patio, a potting shed, and a quaint garden with impressive plantings. Steps from the Navy Yard, the home is situated between a row of gas lamps and includes a laid brick parking area. The antique clapboard building maintains original features like wide pine floors and period moldings. Plus, there are five fireplaces throughout the four-level home—including in bathrooms. And although there are only two bedrooms, one loft with cathedral ceilings and a balcony isn’t half bad.
