The 6,130-square-foot Second Empire took barely a month to trade.
Sixty-six Sparks Street—with five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, a home officer with a separate entrance, a third-floor billiard room and a two-car garage (not to mention one-third of an acre of Japanese-style gardens—traded for a cool $5,000,000 in a deal that closed Tuesday. The mansion just off Brattle Square had been on the market a mere 33 days through John Petrowsky and Christian Jones of Hammond, and was originally listed at $3,700,000 (did someone say bidding war?). It's easily the biggest home trade in Cambridge this year. And, though 2013 has several months left, we don't think anyone will catch it. (Plus: Get this: 66 Sparks last sold way back in October 1988 for $1,100,000.)
