News dropped last week that Ryan slayer Tom Brady and small-town girl Gisele Bundchen had price-chopped their Back Bay penthouse by $400,000 (the couple have been trying to sell it, on and off, since 2009). Even with the chop, though, its tag rests at $10.5 million, placing it in very rarefied company: only one other Boston condo currently on the market is asking over $10 million.
At 6,000 square feet, the condo at 776 Boylston Street (a.k.a., the Residences at the Mandarin Oriental) is also larger than Tom and Gisele's place and has at least one more full bathroom; though it has the same number of bedrooms (3) and the same dictatorial views of the Charles and of Back Bay.
So what does 689 more square feet and one more bathroom cost you in Back Bay: $2 million, for a grand asking of $12.5 million—more than twice the average listing price for the neighborhood and easily the highest condo asking price in Boston right now. Hail, hail!
