The floors of this capacious condo in Beacon Hill simply cry out for sliding about them in white socks. The former artist studio, lofty enough for five bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, plus direct elevator access and as many as five parking spaces, hit the residential market for the first time in late June for $4,750,000. The 4,035-square-foot spread is now $755,000 cheaper, one of the biggest price-chops of this dwindling year. It needs renovations, so the new $3,995,000 tag is just the tip of the financial iceberg. Still, space is at a premium hereabouts.
