The Hottest City on Earth(TM) has not been known of late for its price-chops. Rather, its gigantic sales and over-asks have made the headlines. Now here comes the sole penthouse duplex at 25 Atherton Street in Spring Hill to upend Somerville's reputation a bit. The 2-BR, 2-BA with around 500 square feet of storage(!) has been on the sales market for not even a month and it's already $50,000 off. Unit 34 now wants $799,000 for its 1,500 square feet and two deeded parking spots. The spread has not traded since way back in October 2003 for $485,000. Stay tuned.
