Learn More About the Charlestown Real Estate Market

Like many of the oldest neighborhoods of Boston, Charlestown real estate has experienced a pretty dramatic shift in the last few decades. Similar in style to nearby neighborhoods like Back Bay and Beacon Hill, there’s plenty of red-brick facades and colonial-era architecture. Many of these historic homes have been renovated so that they feature more modern amenities while still maintaining the historic charm of the exterior.

Unlike Back Bay and Beacon Hill, home prices tend to trend a bit lower - available Charlestown real estate is still highly sought after, so available homes don’t tend to stay on the market long. If this is the neighborhood you’re interested in, it’s beneficial to prepare yourself to be make a quick offer.

As Boston’s oldest neighborhood, it doesn’t get much more Boston than Charlestown. The community is positioned on a peninsula at the confluence of Boston Harbor and the Mystic and Charles Rivers. The neighborhood’s position just across the harbor from Boston’s downtown core makes it an especially popular choice for working professionals and younger families. The downtown area of the city is easily accessible via ferry from the Charlestown Navy Yard.

Charleston Neighborhood Highlights

The Charlestown neighborhood was originally its own town, founded as the first capital of the Massachusetts Bay Colony back in 1629. The community is centered around the Bunker Hill monument that also serves as the end point of the popular “Freedom Trail” through the city of Boston.

The neighborhood's most popular shops, bars and restaurants are all clustered around Main Street and City Square. Much like Back Bay and Beacon Hill, Charlestown is a popular choice for pedestrians, both local and tourists, for its gas-lit streets laid with brick. There’s also stunning harbor or river views from the waterfront. Boston’s National Historical Park provides scenic green spaces as well as historic buildings and the Naval Yard is usually home to the U.S.S. Constitution, the oldest commissioned ship in the US Navy.

Notably also, Charleston stakes a claim at being the home of the oldest bar in Massachusetts - Warren Tavern, named for a revolutionary war patriot.

With so much variety to offer, it’s easy to see why many homebuyers choose to make this lovely neighborhood their home. To start your real estate search in Charlestown, contact Terrier Real Estate today! Their Boston REALTORS® are here to help.
