The heavily hardwood-ed townhouse at 22 Joy Street in Beacon Hill first hit the sales market on Halloween 2013 for $2,700,000. The tag for the 3,096-square-foot, 10-room spread with private roof deck and courtyard must've spooked potential buyers: The price started dropping steadily in the spring of 2014, all the way down to $2,399,000 by September. The chopping finally did the trick, apparently, as the sale of 22 Joy Street closed last week. The townhouse traded for $2,050,000 after an official 447 days on the sales market. Maybe it was the lack of parking? Bostonians love parking.
