So... Way back in early March, when the weather was about the same as now, the penthouse at 96 Beacon Street hit the sales market for a cool $13,000,000, making the 6,337-square-foot spread with Esplanade and Public Garden views the third-priciest listing in all of Boston.
As of late last week, the 4-BR, 4.5-BA penthouse had found a buyer. A source confirms that the taking price was the same as the asking: $13,000,000. Which makes it one of the most expensive home trades in living Boston memory; and certainly a contender for priciest sale of 2014 (the only contender even close is the recently traded Mason House). Joshua Golden of Luxury Residential Group represented the buyer and Beth Dickerson of Gibson Sotheby's represented the seller.
Oh, and as for its sales speed, that should not surprise you in the least.
