The 11-room, six-fireplace townhouse at 118 Marlborough Street in Back Bay last traded way, way back in June 1996 for $1,450,000. It has since been majorly renovated, those changes leaving behind a stately manor with flourishes such as a library flanked by both a parlor and a dining room (all on the second level of the five-story property). The 4,959-square-footer also comes with an 800-square-foot roof deck and four freaking parking spaces. There are four and a half bathrooms and five bedrooms. The whole shebang wants $5,500,000 through Keller Williams. We should also point out the chair-back in the first listing photo above. It's over on the right. Who or what is that supposed to be? Your best guesses welcome.
