Everyone knows the Cambridge housing market is a madhouse now, what with all the over-asks and the super-duper low inventory (not to mention the opposition to new development). But the city seems to have ascended to an entirely new benchmark of madness: There are right this second 50 homes on the market asking more than $1,000,000 each. They include both condos and houses.
The most expensive of the lot is the single-family manse at 99 Irving Street just east of Harvard. The 7,025-square-footer, with six bedrooms, five full baths and two partial ones, wants a full $4,750,000. As you might expect, it comes with a sprinkle of history: It's next-door to the late Julia Child's longtime home.
The least expensive of Cambridge's many million-dollar homes is a 2-BR, 2-BA condo off Clement Circle, which has a short sale pending. (What's a short sale? Through here!) Like others among the 50 elect, the 1,970-square-foot unit asking $1,060,000 and sporting a blurry dearth of interior shots has found a buyer. So, yes, Cambridge currently has 50 million-dollar-plus homes officially up for sale; but they're going fast.
