The bones of the 10-room, 3,266-square-foot townhouse at 60 Elm Street in super-historic Charlestown date from the mid-1840s. But the Victorian has been updated, with an interior that looks more contemporary than old-fashioned.
The house—which is on sale through Coldwell Banker’s Tracy Shea for $1,799,000—has three marble fireplaces, a back deck and yard, the potential for four bedrooms, and two and a half bathrooms. The fourth—and top—floor is essentially a loft unto itself.
About the price, too: It’s obviously not cheap, but it might be considered essentially average for downtown Boston right now. A January report that tracked closings in downtown neighborhoods such as Charlestown during the last three months of 2019 found the average townhouse sales price to be $1,790,441.
In fact, 60 Elm’s asking of $550 a square foot is actually lower than the $730-a-foot average from the end of 2019. What’d you think? Deal or no deal?
