The posh 5-BR, 2.5-BA duplex at 33 Marlborough Street in Back Bay last traded as recently as March 2012 for $4,250,000. The 3,685-square-footer, with bones in the 1870s, direct elevator access and two garaged parking spaces included, has just hit the sale market with what we think is an ambitious asking, even in this Thunderdome of a Boston condo market.
Unit 1 at 33 Marlborough wants $5,399,000—or $1,465.13 a square foot to be exact. That's a full $1,149,000 more than it got just two years ago. Stay tuned.
