10 Marlborough's $1M Shave: Last Hurrah for Storied TH?

This could just as easily be a PriceChopper, y'all, but it's Tuesday, so... The magisterial townhouse at 10 Marlborough Streetwhich hit the sales market for the first time in 44 years last October for $13.5M, only to see its tag slashed by $750K two months later—has chopped its price again, this time by a cool mill. The $11,750,000 tag will get you a girthquaking 33.5 feet of frontage; 10 bedrooms; nine bathrooms; more than 11,000 square feet total of living space; garaged parking and basement storage; and, finally, a little bit of Boston history, as it was once owned by novelist Edwin O'Connor, who traded it in 1967 (those buyers are selling it now). O'Connor, among other neologistic accomplishments, coined the term "the last hurrah." Might this price-chop be that for 10 Marlborough? 'Tis the way of things in Boston's luxury real estate.
