This 5-BR, 3.5-BA Beacon Hill townhouse hit the market just five weeks ago asking $3,350,000. Now, with a $355K price-chop on May 2, it joins the ranks of the biggest Boston price-chops of 2012 so far. Built in the 1820s by Cornelius Coolidge, in his day a sort of Donald Trump of Boston real estate, the three-story, 4,238-square-foot townhouse retains many of those early 19th-century flourishes, particularly in the mantels and windows. There's also a garden out back and a sun-deck off the top floor.
