Chanel No. 6 or the Mandarin Oriental: Where Would You Buy?

New, 7 comments

Real Estate Deathmatch is a new Curbed Boston feature pitting two different homes from the same neighborhood against each other. We arm you with the facts and you imagine you have the money to purchase one or the other (come on, play along). Which would you buy? Polls open all weekend; results Monday. The contenders:

Address: 6 Newbury Street, #301
Price: $7,900,000
Size: 3-BR, 4.5-BA
Square Footage: 5,600
Things You Should Know: This is the last unit available at the new development that includes a two-story Chanel shop on the lower floors. It is a floor-through and would come, we imagine, with a hefty renovation bill. Still, it gives you the luxury of tricking out things just the way you want them.


Address: 776 Boylston Street, #W-10A
Price: $6,900,000
Size: 3-BR, 3.5-BA
Square Footage: 3,609
Things You Should Know: This Mandarin Oriental spread is a full $1M cheaper and almost 2,000 square feet smaller than its opponent. But! It comes with no renovation costs (built in) and access to five-star hotel services.
