When last we trained our gaze upon the splendorous townhouse at 23 Chestnut Street, it was asking $4,250,000. That was in March 2012, when the listing was just days old. Then the listing was disappeared/reappeared nine times, including a final disappearance in December, when the price was still what it originally was nine months before. It also switched brokerages not a few times, and has now come back with Sally T. Brewster at Brewster & Berkowitz.
And it's reappeared for that same $4,250,000. For that you get a 4,176-square-foot, 4-BR, 4-BA townhouse with 14-foot ceilings and a marble mantel dating from 1809, when the place was built (there are thoroughly modern touches like central air and an elevator to all four floors). The townhouse last traded in October 1995 for $1,350,000; and it sits across the street from one of the most expensive listings in Boston right now: $10,500,000 for 22 Chestnut (which, mind you, is twice the size of its neighbor).
