Well, then. A couple of weeks ago we told you about the duplex at 165 Commonwealth Avenue that had hit the market for the first time in 16 years and how it looked like the kind of regal place fit as a setting for a British murder mystery or a spoof on the foibles of the aristocracy (such as that Monty Python sketch where Oscar Wilde meets the Prince of Wales). The 3-BR, 2.5-BA, 2,653-square-foot spread was asking $2,820,000 back then in those halcyon days before Bobby Valentine went off on Kevin Youkilis. As of yesterday, though, it's asking $125,000 less. Stained-glass skylight and deeded parking space still included.
