Back in February, we called the 18-foot ceilings in this Four Seasons penthouse the "ultimate 1 percenter status symbol." Occupy Wall Street and all that jazz—we pride ourselves on staying au courant. Well, those windows, plus an eat-in kitchen, a formal dining room, three bedrooms, four bathrooms and a private three-car garage, have traded for $7,350,000 in one of the biggest Boston deals of our fading summer. The new owner will also be responsible for the $10,250 in monthly condo fees (not including heat, hot water and AC).
The 4,022-square-foot unit in the Four Seasons (undoubtedly one of the Curbed Boston 76) had been on and off the market for at least two years, reappearing last winter priced at $7,950,000 and originally listed for $8,950,000. 'Tis the way of things now in the city's luxury market: price-chops often mean sales. The unit last traded way back in 1990 for a measly $3,307,000.
