The 5,512-square-foot Queen Anne at 73 Seaver Street in the Fisher Hill neighborhood of Brookline hit the sales market in April 2011 for $3,750,000.
The 7-BR, 4.5-BA spread, complete with a conservatory overlooking Japanese gardens, then disappeared from the market the same month, only to reappear a year and a month later for $3,250,000. Four months after that (stay with us) the price was chopped further to $3,125,000. Then, this past July, the listing was removed. All this happened amid a backdrop of lightning-quick home sales throughout the Hub.
Well, as of last week, 73 Seaver is back on the sales market, this time for $3,010,000. It's got its fifth broker since that original listing in April 2011 (William Raveis). Whether the oft-listed manse has a chance of trading at just north of $3M remains to be seen. It was last sold way back in 1993, and the sales price then seems to be shrouded in clerical secrecy. Stay tuned.
