The five-story townhouse at 115 Commonwealth Avenue in Back Bay has bones going back to the Civil War and a more recent history as five rental units. Not anymore: It is once again to become a single, private home. The townhouse traded in September 2012 after just 50 days on the market for $10,600,000—or a rather hefty $1,421 a square foot—after it was listed as a 7-BR, 6.5-BA, 7,461-square-foot spread. The news that it's to be a single home places it, then, amidst the most expensive Boston home sales of 2012 (time to update our heatmap!).
