Charlestown Real Estate

Charlestown is a historic waterfront neighborhood, home to Charlestown Navy Yard, as well as the Bunker Hill Monument, the site of a key Revolutionary War battle. It is the oldest town in the state and was the first capital of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, celebrating its history with a number of landmarks and plaques. The popular brick-lined Freedom Trail winds through Charlestown’s gas-lit streets. While Charlestown has strong Irish roots, its 19,000 residents today are a mix of young professionals and families drawn by Charlestown’s waterfront location and relatively affordable prices. The housing stock includes everything from contemporary waterfront condos with views of the skyline to more traditional colonial homes and clapboard triple-deckers. Only one square mile, Charlestown offers a tight-knit community feel, despite being close to Boston’s downtown.  Read more about Charletown real estate.

More About Charlestown Real Estate

 Charlestown Location

Charlestown is located on a peninsula north of the Charles River, across from downtown Boston. The neighborhood boasts access to two waterfronts –the Mystic River and Boston Harbor waterways. Charlestown is served by the Sullivan Square and Community College Stops on the Orange Line and is near the exit to the I-93 expressway.

Charlestown History

Charlestown lays claim to the oldest bar in Massachusetts, the Warren Tavern dating back to 1780. Named for Dr. Joseph Warren, a colorful patriot who helped orchestrate Paul Revere’s ride, the tavern is remembered for serving the likes of Paul Revere and George Washington. The bar now operates under the name “The Colonial.”

Charlestown continues to boast a substantial Irish-American population dating from the migration of the Irish people during the Potato Famine of the 1840s. Its stylish restaurants and comfortable pubs continue to play on this identity.
