One of the longest-listed and most expensive (and rather beautiful) properties in Boston has finally traded. Recall that the 17-room, eight-fireplace, two-decked townhouse at 56 Beacon Street in Beacon Hill first hit the sales market in January 2011 for $12,500,000. That price soon started falling steadily, all the way to $11,900,000, as the 9,559-square-foot palace dropped on and off the market. By the time it returned yet again in late March with broker Tracy Campion this time, 56 Beacon was asking the same $11.9M as before, albeit with fewer listing photos. It was then removed April 27 pending a sale. That sale closed Tuesday. It's over. The townhouse, which comes complete with an elevator to all levels and a four-car heated garage, traded in the end for $11,500,000 after a grand total of 1,161 days officially on the market. A heckuva final tag, yes, even with the price-chops; but not enough to make 56 Beacon Boston's biggest deal of 2015. Better luck next time.
