Back in May, we marveled at the 4-BR, 3.5-BA townhouse at 167 West Brookline Street in the South End, calling it a mix of modern and classic. The 3,972-square-foot spread with bones in the 1860s had been asking close to mid-seven figures.
In a deal that closed Tuesday, 167 West Brookline Street went for exactly what it wanted: $3,500,000. The on-the-dot trade buoys a recent trend in Hub housing (the condo market in particular but it applies here): more sellers getting what they ask, and not a farthing more. The townhouse with two parking spaces last traded back in August 2010 for $2,000,000.
