The fabulously capacious combined-unit Penthouse 1 at Cambridge's Bay Square has been on the sales market for more than seven months. The centerpiece of the 2,868-square-footer is what the Hammond listing dubs a "Majestic Turret" overlooking the great room and surrounded by banks of windows. If the vus from there don't do it for you, there's also a balcony (for when it's warmer, we know). There are also four bedrooms and four full bathrooms.
The whole shebang last traded two recessions ago in August 2000 for a mere $585,000. This go-round it originally asked $2,550,000 in July 2013. Now, after a couple of price-chops it wants a mere $2,195,000. Stay tuned.
