On the Market: A Hidden Palace in the North End
The private roof deck is complete with a garden and views of the harbor.
93 Charter Street, North End
Size: 4,528 square feet
From the outside of this seemingly average brick building in the North End, you’d never guess a truly palatial residence awaits inside. The three-family home overlooking Copp’s Hill Burying Ground is a rarely available gem—and it’s on the market for the first time in eight years.
The corner building’s elegant owner’s residence offers a floor-through living and dining room complete with a wood-burning fireplace, an antique oak mantel, a private balcony, and 10-foot ceilings. In the kitchen and beyond, original joists from the building were salvaged and used to build shelves, cabinets, and built-in bookcases.
A generous master bedroom opens to a one-of-a-kind master bath, where there’s an antique zinc soaking tub, a skylight, exposed brick, and a walk-in shower. Above, a private roof deck boasts an irrigated garden and sweeping views of the harbor. With rental income from two units, you could swing $4.95 million, right?
