The 7-BR, 4.5-BA, 5,275-square-foot house at 18 Traill Street is one of Cambridge's sharpest modernist exclamation points. And why not? It was designed by Harvard architect Walter Bogner, he also of the recently Birkhoff House nearby on Fayerweather. Despite that (or because of?), 18 Traill has now seen two massive price-chops in just the last four months: One of $500,000 in June; and another late last month of $300,000. The spread, including two-car garage and gardens, can be yours for $2,950,000 (still one of the priciest listings in the People's Republic).
