The Sunflower Castle at 130 Mount Vernon Street has far and away one of Boston's most unique residential exteriors (it's interior, we're told, is not so much to look at). The 3,246-square-foot Queen Anne also has one of the choppiest asking prices in town.
Recall that the house, once the home and studio of watercolor painter Gertrude Beals Bourne, hit the sales market in September 2012 for $4,600,000, only to see that price slashed by $105,000 a month later. The asking dropped by a further $496,000 in January; and now it's down another $500,000 to $3,499,000 under new listing broker Tracy Campion. Let's see what happens.
