I have only been in one town house in Boston and it was the most beautiful town house on Earth, hands down. The place had been lived in by an elderly couple for a long time until they passed away and they painted the most amazing (what is the painting term for something painted on a wall?) of Biblical scenes everywhere. They were absolutely breath-taking. It takes a certain kind of person to be able to live there. The place was renovated and well-kept too. Some friends of my parents lived there when I saw it, and the people they sold it to painted over everything It seems like the kind of place to be preserved and wait for the right owners, but I guess they wanted a townhouse, not a work of art.
