A beauty of a home in the South End recently sold, listed by David Mackie of Robert Paul Properties. 2 Saint Charles St. closed for $2,575,000 on Sept. 8.

This home, originally built in 1890, offers four bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths. With 2,450 square feet, there is no shortage of wonderful living space to enjoy.

This beautiful townhouse has just undergone a comprehensive renovation. It is designed to let the light shine in abundance throughout three sides of the home.

Saint Charles Street is a small, quiet and quaint South End street. There is an old world feeling to this area and it's sometimes easy to forget that this is a major 21st century international city.

The new owners will love the gorgeous hardwood maple flooring throughout the home in addition to the very high ceilings.

This is a place that feels bigger than it is. The first floor parlor level has a large open living and dining area. The large contemporary kitchen is a joy with its high gloss white custom cabinetry, Carrara marble counter tops and a gorgeous kitchen island with dark wood laminate. There are plenty of places to store all those dishes, pots, pans and of course, all the ingredients needed to create culinary masterpieces.

The second floor is where to find the master level with a luxurious master bath with a Duravit vanity, toasty radiant heated tiled floor, a beautiful soaking tub and the made-for-relaxing large glass walk-in shower.

Everyone will love the great family room on the garden level. It has a wet bar and study and leads to a beautiful, quiet blue stone patio and garden that offers a feeling of peace.

Enjoy the great outdoor on the wonderful rear deck off the parlor level.

The home includes new top-of-the -line Pella windows and doors.

There is plenty to enjoy in the South End. There are parks and a lot of interesting restaurants, unique shops and galleries. It is also home to one of the city’s most thriving artist communities.

The South End branch of the Boston Public Library is a very short walk down the street. Copley Square and Chinatown with all they have to offer can also be reached by foot.

It also doesn’t take much effort to hike over to the thriving Financial District and the Waterfront.

The South End neighborhood has an amazing history. It is built upon a former tidal marsh, a part of a larger project of the filling of Boston's Back Bay and South Bay. That project ran from the 1830s to the 1870s. Actual construction of the neighborhood is said to have begun in 1849.

The South End is noted for its many parks. There are 11 residential parks scattered throughout this neighborhood.

In 1973, the South End was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
