WARNING: This may consume much of your working day: Broker Michael DiMella has compiled an engrossing map of the 120 most expensive home sales in the history of Boston. Yup. Some you've heard of, like Tom Brady's two mammoth trades or basically the entire top 10, which is dominated by Louisburg Square and the Mandarin Oriental (many of the addresses, too, you might remember from our Curbed Boston 76 map). There are also delectable statistical tidbits, like that prelapsarian 2008 was the busiest year for ultra-luxury sales, with 28 at an average price of $7.1 million. There's also the smallest, the biggest, the priciest by square foot... it goes on and on. Just remember: We warned you.
