Penthouse K at 128 Beacon Street in Back Bay hit the sales market in early June asking $4,695,000. The seven-room, nearly 3,000-square-foot spread had a lot going for it: direct elevator access; a skylight in the foyer; bay windows; a gas fireplace; two garaged parking spaces as part of the deal; and a private roof deck with city and Charles vus. Such accoutrements drew buyer interest immediately and the penthouse went to contract soon after its listing. A deal for it just closed, though there's a twist.
Penthouse K ended up trading for $4,665,000—or some $30K off the asking. Hmm... We're starting to see a trend in luxury Boston real estate. You?
