$3.8M Brookline Duplex Has Brush w/ Art History, No Fee

Where: 27 Colchester Street, Duplex
Price: $3,800,000
Square Footage: 6,066

The Skinny: Not much of a baby anymore, this Brookline manse, not after more than 100 days on the market. Still, it got a tight write-up in The Globe Magazine over the weekend because of its history, so it's newborn in a sort of public-perception way. The daughters of Edward Darley Boit lived in this house, though John Singer Sargent's famous painting of them (at right, the original's in the Museum of Fine Arts) was done in Paris. The house is now two condos, including a 5-BR, 4.5-BA duplex by way of the second and third floors. That condo has 12-foot ceilings, mahogany doors, and seven fireplaces, plus exclusive use of the yard. And its foyer has two niches for those tall blue vases pictured in the famed painting. There's no condo fee, but no garage for either unit.
