Hi Selwa, no this property in Charlestown is strictly what they call raw land. It needs approvals to build from all the necessary venues.

As you probably know it is in a flood plain which would mean that it needs an upscale onsite wastewater treatment system. Any other questions, just contact me. best, Ginny Gorman
