The Skinny: The luxury reach of Back Bay is long. It stretches all the way from the monied bleed-in to Beacon Hill to the borderlands with Kenmore, west of Mass. Ave., where you'll find this resplendent 7-BR, 3.5-BA townhouse. It's not just the high ceilings or the French doors or the 1,000-square-foot roof deck or the chef's kitchen (or the two deeded parking spaces!). No, that's standard in Back Bay luxury, we should think. It's the garden-level unit that could, per the listing, rake in as much as $28,000 a year in rent. As we put it earlier this year, it was almost like putting a price tag on your in-laws, as the unit was pitched as a "nanny/in-law" space with a separate entrance and everything. Awkward?
