The penthouse triplex at 304 Commonwealth Avenue closed recently after barely 100 days officially on the market (though fewer than 60 from listing to contract). The 4-BR, with two full baths and two partial ones as well as a baronial roof deck with a kitchen tricked out with a pizza oven, was asking $7,395,000.
Listed by Cabot & Co.'s Shelagh Brennan, the 4,120-square-foot spread in the 35-foot-wide Clark Weld House closed for $7,350,000. Yes, down from the asking. But! The final taking comes out to $1,783.11 a square foot—or the 31st priciest condo traded in Back Bay in the last five years. And! It's likely an all-time record for that block of the neighborhood bounded west and east by Hereford and Gloucester streets. Madness.
