Regular readers know that we are enthralled by the townhouse at 10 Marlborough Street. Not only is it a knockout stylistically and scope-wise—33.5 feet of frontage; 10 bedrooms; nine bathrooms; more than 11,000 square feet total of living space; garaged parking and basement storage; and elegant finishes dating from the tail end of the (last) Gilded Age—but it's got a literary pedigree to boot: Boston chronicler Edwin O'Connor owned it until 1967. His buyer is selling it, and has already dropped the asking by a cool million to $11,750,000. It passed 400 days on the market on Sunday. Might the price drop again? A little more and it's all ours (not really).
