The scrumptious townhouse disappeared from the sales market in late February, right around the time it was rented for $40,000 a month.
Recall that the 8,450-square-foot townhouse first went up for grabs way back in February 2010, for $14,950,000. The price then dwindled by a cool million (and the listing brokerage changed twice) before the Benjamin Mansion dropped off the sales market altogether and became quite likely Boston's priciest rental in modern history. As of Friday, it's again for sale with that same $13,950,000 tag.
What's one get for that (or for $40K a month plus $40K security deposit)? A heated lap pool and surrounding rooftop deck; six bedrooms; nine bathrooms (six full); eight working fireplaces; three powder rooms; a media room; a library; a gym; Public Garden views; deeded parking; and a large elevator servicing all six floors. Stay tuned.
