This 4-BR, 3.5-BA on Prescott Street near the John Harvard Mall originally went on the market in May 2011 for $1,190,000, only to have the listing disappear the following month. Well, it's back nearly a year and a half later at $1,265,000, a more than 6 percent jump in asking. There is a housing boom on (the house, in fact, has basically doubled in price since its 2006 sale at $665,000). For that, one gets the chef's kitchen with double ovens; the master bath with radiant heat; the pumpkin-pine floors; four-source surround sound; a patio; and a deck. Check out the floorplans to see how these 19th-century Charlestown houses do it.
