That stretch of West Cambridge's Fayerweather Street between Huron Avenue and Brattle Street 'tis no stranger to big deals. And yet. The deal for the 4,707-square-foot Victorian-era abode at 22 Fayerweather is unique. Why? The 14-room, seven-fireplace house first dropped on the sales market in May 2014 for $3,725,000. The price tag then dropped steadily from there, all the way to $3,275,000. That's where it rested until it traded in a deal that closed earlier this month.
In the end, 22 Fayerweather went for $3,150,000. That's a full $575,000 off the original asking. That's a lot, especially in a Cambridge market that usually trends in the opposite direction—and wildly so.
