130 Commonwealth Ave.: Boston's Biggest Sale of 2015 So Far

After an official 560 days on the sales market, the girthquakingly gorgeous townhouse at 130 Commonwealth Avenue has sold. Listed by Gibson Sotheby's William Montero, the 9,908-square-foot palace in Back Bay features flourishes such as a 2,200-bottle wine cellar, five fireplaces, a private elevator and an amazing six parking spaces. Yet, no buyer did it readily find. Recall that the limestone townhouse had sold for nearly $10M in mid-2013, after asking as much as $12.5M. It then 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, 130 Commonwealth had been one of the most expensive listings up for grabs in all of Boston, asking as much as $13.9M. It was last seen asking $13.4M. The sale of 130 Commonwealth closed on Feb. 26 for $11,600,000. Even with the long wait and the price-chops, the trade is far and away the biggest one in Boston so far this year. The similarly long-listed townhouse at 410 Beacon Street, which traded for $8.5M in early January, is the only thing that comes close.
