Charlestown was conceived as a community of townhouses designed to reflect a traditional colonial atmosphere. The random variations in house styles and architectural detail, the setback effect and the placement of units within the community were studiously considered to eliminate the look of “sameness” common to city row-houses and so many suburban housing developments. This concept has been successful, for the general appearance of Charlestown has attracted many buyers and has had numerous imitators in the area since the first unit was completed in late 1966.
