The fabulously scrumptious townhouse at 261 Shawmut Avenue is the most expensive new listing in the always-hot, always-enviable, always-not-insufferable-not-at-all South End. There's a lot to like about it: 3,563 square feet; four bedrooms, including a full-floor master suite; three and a half bathrooms; a bluestone patio; and plenty of natural light. The 12-room townhouse comes with a permit for on-street parking, too (but not with the espresso machine pictured). The whole shebang wants $3,495,000. It last traded in June 2011 for $2,050,000. Stay tuned.
