Charlestown MA Real Estate

Neighborhood highlights: Real Estate, history, restaurants and more


Charlestown was a city in its own right until it was annexed by the City of Boston in 1874. It is located on a peninsula north of Boston proper running between the Charles River and the Mystic River with frontage on to Boston Harbor. 

A rich history pervades Charlestown with a sense of Colonial times.  The narrow, sometimes cobblestone streets and lovely squares like Monument Hill, speak of earlier settlements. Boston’s Freedom Trail leads to the north end of the city and past the Bunker Hill Monument. This granite monument was erected to commemorate the site of the Battle of Bunker Hill, one of the first engagements between the colonists and British soldiers.
 
Charlestown’s waterfront focuses around and through the Charlestown Navy Yard. First established in 1781 as a shipbuilding site, the navy yard was mainly used for supplies and repairs to the navy fleet. Part of the navy yard was established as a National Historic site and now houses the dry docked USS Constitution – America’s oldest remaining battle ship – and the neighboring museum or maritime history. In addition to the history, active current day affairs take place on the waterfront walkways, and in the luxury condos and restaurants located in the navy yard.
 
Charlestown’s proximity to Boston means easy walking into the North End, or a quick trip on the water shuttle for the airport or waterfront park area. Public transit also offers an easy ride on the Orange Line train or the 92/93 bus lines.
