4 Wall Street, Charlestown
Price: $949,000
Size: 1,146 square feet
Bedrooms: 2
Baths: 2

Built in 1850, this former worker’s cottage is nestled on a quiet one-way street in Charlestown. The perfectly preserved little house for sale only has two bedrooms, but abounds with antique charm.

There’s character to be found in its exposed bricks and beams, pine floors, and hearth-like fireplace. The main living area boasts built-in shelving for bookworms, as well as a nook that fits a desk (or in case of the owners, a piano). An updated kitchen offers French doors that open to a rear patio. The outdoor space comes with raised beds for growing flowers and veggies, plus plenty of room for hosting garden soirées.

There is one catch on this neat little package, and it’s the price tag. It’s listed for almost $1 million, or $828 per square foot.
