Well, maybe it used stronger language. Either way, the scrumptiously apportioned triplex across from the Public Garden just zapped its price tag by quite a bit.
The 4-BR, 4.5-BA, 3,857-square-foot condo, which unfolds over 88 Beacon Street's high parlor, mezzanine and second-floor levels, plopped on the market in late May for $9,000,000, listed by Robert Cohen. Within two weeks, the price had dropped by a cool million, still more than enough to place it amongst the priciest condos on the Boston market (for a while, in fact, it was the priciest).
It still resides in rarefied company, don't get us wrong: Its new tag of $7,600,000 makes it the third-priciest condo available in the city, behind only a madcap 3-BR at the Mandarin Oriental ($13,500,000) and a 5-BR monster at One Charles Boston ($9,775,000). How long it maintains that rank, only time shall tell (it last traded six years ago this month for $5,500,000). Stay tuned.
