On the Market: A Sparkling Charlestown Single-Family
A few blocks from the Bunker Hill Monument, this recently renovated home is equal parts chic and casual.
55 Green St., Boston
Size: 1,633 square feet
Shoulder-to-shoulder with its neighbors, this attached single-family serves up the camaraderie of condo living, but with the independence of a house fully your own. And this home recently underwent a thorough renovation, gracing its 1880 bones with refreshing finishes. Original banisters and antique, wide pine floors nod to the dwelling’s history, while the new additions of a giant waterfall-edge island made of marble, stainless Thermador appliances, a subway tile backsplash, and skylights make the kitchen glisten. While washing the dishes, you can admire the private back patio through the window above the sink. Completely fenced in, the current owners have used the patio for everything from grilling to urban gardening, even maximizing on the space by converting the fence into a vertical garden.
Past the bank of gray, floor-to-ceiling cabinets, a white shiplap wall takes over, running from the dining area to the end of the living room. The siding transitions the first floor from a hip, sleek look to a more casual, country vibe, complemented by a pair of plantation shutters flanking the living room windows. Across the top two levels, the design continues to blend relaxed and chic styles with muted color, French doors, marble fireplaces, and more window shutters. Though there’s no roof deck quite yet, there is the potential to add one—and take full advantage of its three-block proximity to the Bunker Hill Monument.
