Forgive us, but we missed the three-year anniversary of 56 Beacon Street's market debut. The 8,684-square-foot townhouse, with five bedrooms and eight bathrooms, dropped way back in the last week of January 2011. What was it asking? $12,500,000.
More than 1,120 days later and the townhouse with a four-car garage, a dining room capacious enough to seat 14 comfortably, a master suite that consumes the entire third floor and an elevator to all five levels is still asking $12.5M (or roughly $1,430 a square foot). The aged listing should take hope, though, from another Methuselah: The Ames-Webster Mansion at 306 Dartmouth Street sold last year for an epic amount after 1,030 days on the sales market. Light a candle.
