Jennifer Schneider of Century 21 Elite Realty has listed this three-story, 1,476-square-foot single family home with three bedrooms, one full bathroom and one half bathroom for a new lower price of $819,000.

A single home in Charlestown is a rare find, but one with private outdoor space is indeed a treasure. Toss in location on a street affectionately referred to as “Small Town in the City” plus a brand new playground (William “Zeke” Marsden Playlot a.k.a. Cook Street Playground) at the corner and this is a package deal that seems too good to be true - but it isn’t.

Jennifer Schneider of Century 21 Elite Realty has listed this three-story, 1,476-square-foot single family home with three bedrooms, one full bathroom and one half bathroom for a new lower price of $819,000.

Fully fenced and exceptionally large, the sprawling outdoor space has everything: an attractive brick patio with ample room for dining and seating. Surrounding mulching beds are gardens (potted, raised bed or other) waiting to bloom. This urban oasis also has water and electricity.

Built in 1880, this single home has, of course, over the years undergone numerous changes. Today, however, this residence has many prerequisites for contemporary lifestyles.

The completely open concept main floor that runs front-to-back offers exceptional flexibility for every living space. The galley-style kitchen, for example, which is at the “back” of the house, has several options. One is to leave this sizable space with amenities such as black quartz countertops, attractive white cabinetry with under-cabinet lighting, stainless steel appliances, recessed ceiling lights and excellent pantry space as is. Another is to install a center island (with or without storage and/or seating); adding a peninsula works, too.

Even with those changes/additions, this rest of the “room” is large enough for a generously sized “formal” dining area and living room. A wide bump out in the dining area is an ideal spot for a server or china cabinet. A smaller bump out in the living room adds even more space.

This main level also has hardwood flooring throughout, detailed bump boards and a Bose in-wall surround sound system. Classic but compact radiators that are in almost every room add touches of character.

A half bathroom with a pedestal sink is on this level, too.

All of the twin bedrooms on the second floor are very large with excellent closet space. These are currently long singles, but creating bigger ones is a very doable option. Attractive hardwood flooring enhances the sleek lines in these rooms and three large windows in each room insures that natural light is plentiful.

An adjacent room works well as an office or even a nursery. However, another possibility is to remove the wall it shares with one bedroom to create a gigantic walk-in closet or “sitting” alcove.

Bead board wainscoting in the shared full bathroom on the second floor is a charming backdrop for an adorable mini radiator that reflects this home’s rich history. So is the black-and-white tile floor. The tub/shower combination is thoroughly modern.

Multi-glass paned French doors open to a huge bedroom (a king-size bed, nightstands and other prerequisite furniture fits comfortably) with a high cathedral ceiling and good-looking wood flooring. Loft-like space over the doors can be used for decorative displays. However, by going the dormer route, this level has excellent potential as a luxurious master suite.

The sleeping chamber/bedroom space is already very big, yet this level has plenty of room for extras. In addition to existing space for a walk-in closet, another area outside the bedroom is plumbed for a full bath.

In keeping with its status as a single home, a regulation basement for utilities as well as a washer and dryer is part of the package. So is additional storage.

There will be an open house from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, July 23.
