What a ride 130 Commonwealth Avenue has had in the last few years. It sold for nearly $10M in mid-2013 after asking as much as $12.5M. Shortly thereafter, it took a turn as Boston's priciest rental, asking as much as $43,000 a month (and turning down an offer of $28,500). And, since late 2013, it has been one of the most expensive listings up for grabs in the entire city, asking as much as $13.9M. Well, it appears that 130 Comm. Ave. is ready for yet another act: There is a contract out on the 9,908-square-foot, 12-room mansion with five fireplaces, a private elevator and a 2,200-bottle wine cellar. The limestone palace listed by Gibson Sotheby's William Montero was last asking $13,400,000. Stay tuned for the closing price.
