On the Market: A Former Worker’s Cottage in Charlestown
This rare single-family abode is steps from Bunker Hill Monument.
2 Pleasant Street Court, Charlestown
Size: 1,470 square feet
This single-family abode in Charlestown is quite the rare find. Tucked in a private alleyway near the Bunker Hill Monument, the home was built as a worker’s cottage in 1839.
Today, however, the two-bedroom house appears to be far from its modest beginnings. The kitchen boasts top-of-the-line appliances, including a Viking cooktop, an indoor grill, a Thermador electric oven, and a Miele dishwasher. The luxuries continue upstairs, where there’s a master suite that offers a clawfoot soaking tub and a marble shower.
Aside from its more modern bells and whistles, plenty of the home’s antique details remain. There’s an original hearth in the kitchen, as well as wide-pine floors, several wood-burning fireplaces, and beamed ceilings. A cozy living room offers a wall of built-in bookshelves, plus French doors that open to a home office. The property also offers a small deck and backyard, to be enjoyed when spring finally arrives.
