Rare Single-Family Home for Sale in Boston’s North End

Carmela Laurella of CL Waterfront Properties LLC is marketing a special property at 5 Tileston Place, a pretty courtyard off of Tileston Street in Boston’s North End Neighborhood, accessible only by foot or bike.

Tileston Street is a short road filled with local history, that starts at Salem Street near the Old North Church and ends on Hanover Street, near St. Stephen’s Church. It runs parallel to the Paul Revere Mall, where the famous statue of Paul Revere on his horse is located.

It is rare to fine a single-family home in the North End, but this is one of them. This home has three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, an eat-in kitchen, granite counter-tops, a gas cook surface, a family room, a large utility and storage room, architect-designed storage cabinets, a balcony and a roof deck. The list price is $995,000.

Celebrity Sightings on Quiet Private Lane

The present owner says he often sees athletes with the Boston Bruins or the Boston Celtics in the neighborhood, and he has seen the Stanley Cup many times. He also sees famous movie stars who visit the North End when they are in town. But, he says that even when there is a saint’s feast parade on Hanover Street, it is quiet and private on his lane.

A cast iron decorative gate marks the location of Tileston Place a few doors down Tileston Street, near Hanover Street. The brick walls and clapboard residences around it block excessive noise and provide a pleasant respite from the activity of the North End.

Hostas, miniature boxwoods, ornamental grasses, a Japanese maple and other plants soothe the spirit. At the end opposite the gate on Tileston Street is the brick wall of Paul Revere Mall.

Completely Renovated in 2000

In 1998 a developer sought permission to remodel 5 Tileston Place and replaced the wiring and plumbing, added recessed lighting to the public rooms, put on a new roof and made the home almost like new when it was completed in 2000.

He also added a second wood- frame clapboard building next door that contains two condominiums. These are the only three residences on Tileston Place.

Two entrance doors, each with its own stoop, face the courtyard. The one closer to Tileston Street is the formal front entrance. The second, just as in the suburbs, opens to the kitchen.

Through the front door a shallow storage closet gives space to hang coats. Beyond it, a staircase leads to the upper floors, and down the hall, stairs descend to the family room and the utility room. To the right from the front door a wide doorway opens to the living room.


Gorgeous Living Room with Fireplace & Built-In Bookcases

The living room has a wood-burning fireplace and a niche to hold firewood. A long window seat is under the windows on the front wall. Built-in, architect-designed bookcases are at each end of the window seat.

Kitchen with Scavolini Cabinets & Pantry

The Scavolini kitchen cabinets include a pantry with a chromed carousel inside. The carousel rolls forward and turns so that either side can be accessed easily. Opposite the pantry, a large area provides plenty of space for a table for casual dining.

There are also a vented range hood and a garbage disposal. The granite counters are mottled gray, black, brown and cream and look good with any color.


3 Bedrooms, a Family Room, 2.5 Bathrooms, Utility Room, and More

A half bath off the lower level family room also holds the washer and dryer. The utility room is also off the family room.  The full bath on the second floor holds a Jacuzzi soaking tub.

The third floor comprises the master suite, which includes a large sitting room with a fireplace and a Juliet balcony. The en suite bath includes a steam shower. Another full staircase leads to the head house and roof deck.

Luxury Home Features and Amenities

All of the windows in the house feature custom interior wooden louvered shutters. Amenities include a central vacuum cleaner, gas central heat, central air conditioning and an audio/visual system that allows people using it inside and out to be seen and heard. There are retractable scroll screens on all doors. The master suite wall unit and closet and the second floor closet are all by California Closets.
