Bunker Hill Home Near Monument

Tucked off Bunker Hill’s Monument Square on a gaslamp-lit private way in beautiful and charming Charlestown, this 3 bedroom/2.5 bath single family home enjoys a sunny corner exposure and parking for one small to medium-sized car. The main level features an open living room with gas fireplace with handsome white mantel, crown molding, and gleaming, walnut stained hardwood floors; chef's kitchen with cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, and stainless appliances, including gas range; and dining space with glass slider to a large private deck. Two generous bedrooms, each with corner exposure, and a well-appointed full bath with Jacuzzi tub w/tile surround, make up the second level. A spacious and loft-like master bedroom is located on the top level and features double closets and a full bath with glass enclosed shower with limestone surround and stone-topped vanity. The finished lower level offers a playroom/media room space, a half bath, storage, laundry center and direct egress to parking. Two zone central air and heat. Fully refurbished recently. Beautifully furnished (photos accurately depict the furniture as of December, 2018). We keep this house so our family of five living in Ethiopia most of the year can look forward to a summer sanctuary in one of central Boston’s most desirable areas, and make it available to fellow academics and others who will treat it and our neighbors respectfully the rest of the year. Minimum lease in Boston is 28 days. Credit and Background Check required.

About Me
I am an ophthalmology professor developing Mass Eye and Ear's global surgery program. My family and I live in Ethiopia most of the year, and only use our house during about four weeks in July/August, and occasionally at other times when it is unoccupied.
