Sit down for this one and swallow your coffee lest you spit it out: the 50-room, 28-fireplace Ames-Webster Mansion at 306 Dartmouth Street is under a sale agreement. What's that mean? Someone (or thing) has agreed to buy the 26,000-square-foot palace in Back Bay that's been on the market for more than 1,000 days. That does not mean it's a done deal. Far from it. Nor does it mean it's under agreement for the latest asking price of $18,000,000. There is, however, according to the MLS, an anticipated closing of January 2013. Stay very tuned.
