When last we stared agog at the Benjamin Mansion on Beacon Street, we were noting the heated rooftop lap pool during the last heatwave. Now we come to tell of the biggest price-chop in the Hub this year (a year chock-a-block with big price-chops). The 8,450-square-foot house dating from the John Quincy Adams administration was asking $14,950,000 until mere days ago. Now it's asking a full $1M less. For that mere $13,950,000, you get it all: the heated lap pool and surrounding deck; six bedrooms; nine baths total; eight working fireplaces; three powder rooms; a large elevator servicing all six floors; a media room; a library; a gym; and, sacrosanct of all, deeded parking. We're told, too, that the listing has switched to the purview of superbroker Tracy Campion, who has a little experience in these luxury matters.
