Cuts Aside, Back Bay Hearths Still Going for $750K a Pop

The listing for this grand dwelling at 29 Fairfield Street, overlooking Commonwealth Avenue, boasts a "flexible floor plan" and, apparently, the cost to own it is flexible as well: The asking price dropped by $150,000 over the weekend, down to a far more relatable $2,250,000. For that pittance, you get a 3-BR, 2-BA, second-floor property with direct elevator access. Built in 1876, the 2,006-square-foot abode is the very definition of stately—did we mention the Ionic, fluted columns in the living space? Two off-street deeded parking places are included, and the building's brick exterior screams quintessential Back Bay. For cold winter nights, there's also a trio of fireplaces– why, at the current price, that's a mere $750,000 per hearth. — Rachel Lebeaux
