Commonwealth Duplex Hits Market for First Time in 16 Years

We can't quite decide if the living room of this Commonwealth Avenue condo is the perfect setting of a British murder mystery or an old Monty Python sketch about the foibles of the aristocracy (like the one where the Prince of Wales visits Oscar Wilde). Either way, there's something charmingly English about the 2,653-square-foot spread from 1879, a time when indeed English design sensibilities were influencing the American uppercrust (we called it Gilded, they called it Victorian). It's on the market for the first time in 16 years, and offers 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a stained-glass skylight, 2 walk-in closets, a chef's kitchen and a deeded parking space. Yours for $2,820,000.
