We've been typing a lot about churches lately—as in the converted kind or, in the case of the old Blessed Sacrament off Hyde Square, the soon-to-be-converted kind. We've written about 492 Beacon Street before, too, the old Mount Vernon Church that closed in 1978 and that was born again, after a hellfire, as the Church Court condos. Now comes the good word (we'll stop) that there 3-BR, 2.5-BA triplex there has cut its asking by $149K to a still-formidable $1,050,000. The 1,660-square-foot spread offers an open layout with vaulted ceilings and big closets, plus one garaged parking space and two private entrances. The six-figure price-chop, then, might be nothing more than a precursor to a sale. It's been known to happen in luxury Boston.
