Got $8,500,000 and then some? You're in luck: the 8,269-square-foot brownstone at 117 Beacon Street in the Back Bay-Beacon Hill borderlands has gone up for sale and it's clearly in need of some TLC. The Keliher Real Estate touts the opportunity to restore the 1890s building to its Victorian luster or to convert it into two grand condos. There's even room for a garage big enough for four cars and an approximately 1,000-square-foot roof deck. It's currently 14 rooms total, with seven full bathrooms and five fireplaces; and the listing photos, though a bit fuzzy, ooze with a kind of hidden elegance that might be better revealed given a little elbow grease and tons and tons of cash.
