Not since early July, to be precise, when both 78 Beacon Street and 130 Commonwealth Avenue dropped on the same day.
Now we have 22 Chestnut Street, a 8,239-square-foot townhouse dating from 1823, with seven bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms, plus a four-car garage (heated, naturally), a sunroom, an elevator and six fireplaces. It has not traded since September 1992, when the price was $2,500,000. Today? It wants $10,500,000. And it just may get it.
