Not every townhouse in Boston has to be a Victorian wonder suitable for an English earl's Irish son-in-law. No, some can be wonderfully functional, the sort that prospective buyers can look at and say to themselves, "Yup, rip that out first and add that next." The 2,455-square-foot brownstone at 15 Lawnwood Place in Charlestown is just such a townhouse. There is plenty of room for updates and rearrangements, and the dearth of ornate staging in the listing photos seems to suggest that that's a selling point. That and the four bedrooms and the 10-foot ceilings and the Zakim Bridge views from the roof deck and the finished basement. Those are pretty enticing, too.
