To live a ½ mile away from one of New England’s most beautiful beaches is something anyone would consider life at its most perfect. Perfection however, is something that comes not only from great surroundings, but also from finding the finest place to settle in and live the beach life in comfort and peace. That stunning and gorgeous beach is Charlestown Beach, one of New England’s best-kept coastal secrets, and that perfect home is the spacious Colonial at 24 Craig Street in Charlestown.
24 Craig Street is a newly constructed home on an immaculate, spacious lot just off of Charlestown Beach Road. At its current stage of construction, the home is fully studded and plumbed and waiting for someone to make it their own. Finding a newly built home that is unfinished is a rare treat for the potential homebuyer looking for versatility and a chance to configure their dream home to their own standards and personality.
One of the most exciting elements of 24 Craig Street is its placement in the Charlestown By the Sea Association. The Charlestown By the Sea Association provides its member residents with private beach parking and exclusive launch access, docking and kayak storage off of Green Hill Pond. These kinds of perks provide a sense of community, exclusivity and fun that make the most of living a mere five-minutes walk to the beach.
Outside, 24 Craig Street is immaculately constructed with a totally maintenance-free exterior, newly installed well and septic tank and fenced-in, private backyard. The up-to-date design and layout of this Colonial style home makes it an area standout.
Inside, the layout of the home is just as beautifully designed. Entering through a gracious two-story foyer under a cathedral ceiling, the first floor opens to a formal dining room to its left and a private study to its right. The spacious kitchen area provides abundant space for cabinets and storage and flows seamlessly into a spacious living room with sliding French doors leading out to the backyard. Because the interior is unfinished, the openness and options for these rooms is endless.
A full bathroom with a walk-in closet sits between the kitchen and attached two-car garage. An additional backdoor entrance also opens out from the garage.
Upstairs, two master bedrooms provide spacious privacy and further options for the homeowners to personalize the space to their own specifications. Both bedrooms have generously sized walk-in closets. Each of the two bedrooms also has their own sizable, luxurious full bathrooms, both with a stand-up shower and whirlpool soaking tub. A conveniently placed washer and dryer space also sits on the second floor, between both bedrooms.
Also on the second floor, an additional bonus room opens up over the homes garage, adding even more versatile space perfectly suited for a home office, playroom or whatever the homeowner could desire.
It’s the versatility and openness of 24 Craig Street’s design that truly makes it a once in a lifetime buying opportunity for potential homeowners. Its rare to find a newly built home is such an established, beachfront community like Charlestown By the Sea, and even more rare to find a new home that is an empty slate waiting for someone to make it the home they’ve always dreamt of.
24 Craig Street is listed for $495,000. For more information on 24 Craig Street, contact Realtor Patrice Fenton with Randall Realtors at 401.364.5249 or email her at Patrice@randallrealtors.com.
