Buying Luxury Charlestown
1 Laurel St., Charlestown Randy Robinson PHOTOS

This mid-19th century brick town house with peppy cobalt blue front door is on a charming leafy street, just steps from Bunker Hill Monument.

All four floors of this nearly 3,000-square foot single-family Victorian, which boasts a sunny back garden and rooftop deck with skyline views, has been refurbished with stylish, on-trend finishes.

The all-white kitchen — which has marble walls, a Sub-Zero fridge, a wine cooler, and a stainless steel La Cornue range with brass accents — is on the main level, adjacent to an open dining area and walk-in pantry.

The formal living room, lined with aqua-painted period paneling and centered on a wood-burning fireplace, is also on this floor.

The family room, complete with a custom bar with a tap, built-in bookshelves, and a balcony, is on floor No. 2.

A pair of bedrooms down the hall share a bath with a claw-foot tub. The glamorous master bedroom is on the third floor, connected to a walk-in closet and bath with a marble walk-in shower and freestanding soaking tub.

The finished basement works as a playroom or guest bedroom. Overall, statement light fixtures, lacquered walls, splashy wallpaper, and colorful interior doors with faceted crystal knobs make this a fun, move-in-ready forever home.
