The Charles Wood House is a historic house at 34 Chestnut Street in Stoneham, Massachusetts. It is one of the most elaborate Italianate houses in Stoneham. The 2.5 story wood frame house was built c. 1875 for Charles Wood, but its occupation remains unknown. Its basic plan is an L shape, but there is a projecting section on the center of the main facade that includes a flat-roof third story turret, and the roof line has numerous gables facing different directions. There are porches on the front right, and in the crook of the L, with Stick style decorations, the cornice features heavy paired brackets, some of its windows are narrow rounded windows in a somewhat Gothic Revival style, and the walls are clad in several types and shapes of wooden clapboards and shingles.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984, where it is listed at 34 Chestnut Street.[1] The property is also a contributing resource to the Nobility Hill Historic District, listed in 1990.[2]
