$750K Off Back Bay Manse Edwin O'Connor Owned

On Halloween, we told you about the palatial Marlborough Street townhouse once owned by Boston chronicler Edwin O'Connor (go get his novel The Last Hurrah, go now!). Recall:

· It was asking $13,500,000.
· It last traded in 1967, when O'Connor sold it.
· It has 10 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms (3 partial) over 4 floors and 11,118 square feet.
· The bones of the building go back to 1905.
· It has a garaged parking space and a basement for storage.
· It is a girthquaking 33.5 feet wide, and the original brick/limestone facade remains.
· The original detailing, including mahogany doors and columns, remains as well.
· It has an elevator.

It also has a tremendous price-chop: $750K as of the week before Thanksgiving (these things always sneak in under the radar, eh?). The 5.6 percent drop still leaves it with a formidable $12,750,000 tag, which places the townhouse amongst the priciest half-dozen listings in Boston (the Ames-Webster Mansion is tops at $18,000,000 after a $5M price-chop).

· Listing: 10 Marlborough Street [R.M. Bradley & Co.]
· $13.5M Back Bay Listing 44 Years in the Making [Curbed Boston]
· Back Bay's Ames-Webster Mansion Now $5M Off [Curbed Boston]
