Beacon Hill's Sunflower Castle Sheds 105,000 Petals

The most adorable house in all of Boston is that much more within your reach: Beacon Hill's Sunflower Castle chopped its price Monday by $105,000. Recall that the 3,246-square-foot, 4-BR, 3.5-BA Queen Anne went on the market in early September for $4,600,000, with much remarked-upon fanfare due to its quirky design and unusual-even-for-Boston pedigree: Its third floor had been the studio of watercolor artist Gertrude Beals Bourne, who lived in the house with her husband, architect Frank Bourne. She rendered the space about a century ago in a piece called the "The Artist's Studio—Sunflower Castle" (and there are sunflower carvings under the house's eaves, natch?). All that, and exposed beams, now for $4,495,000.
