When it closed for $14,500,000 in March 2013, the 26,000-square-foot, 50-room, 28-fireplaced Ames-Webster Mansion at 306 Dartmouth Street was the priciest home sale in Boston history ($14.5M was a lot of money back then). It was being used commercially at the time, but details soon emerged that the buyer, a Saudi sheikh, planned to return the building to its roots as a mad-crazy-awesome private home or perhaps split it into two homes for himself and relatives. A reader writes in on the always-discreet Curbed Boston Tipline that a sign is now up at Dartmouth and Commonwealth saying the mansion is on the market again. Plus, it appears to be undergoing a massive renovation. For-sale sign. Renovation. Ideas? Let us know.
