The squat house at 14 Brattle Circle near Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge looks like it should come complete with a stubbly banjo player arcing tobacco juice into a clear plastic cup. But what'd we know? The 1,741-square-foot, 3-BR, 3-BA, which has quite the capacious basement level, dropped on the market in mid-April for $825,000. We have it on fabulous authority that 12 buyers bid for the spread.
The same authority says that the house dating from the 1940s has closed for $1,250,359—or $425,359 over asking. Cambridge is no stranger to such closings. Still.
