We're on a new-listings kick, and this curious Back Bay beaut popped across our transom just now: Listed just last week by Meridian Realty, it's got 10 fireplaces, a "huge roof deck with hot tub," and a master bedroom suite big enough for a sitting area and a jacuzzi and steam shower. Also! It's got its own "servants quarters," which probably helps explain the 7 bedrooms and 8 baths (2 partial). Interestingly, the servants quarters are rather sizable (interesting to us, we guess). According to the listing, the "main quarters" are 4,500 square feet; if the entire place is just over 8,000, that leaves roughly 3,500 feet for the butlers, maids, footmen, etc. Yours for $8,500,000.
