Three years of renovations have left the 6,383-square-foot townhouse at 225 Beacon Street with flourishes such as a sun-drenched main staircase and a brand-new elevator to all six floors to render those stairs obsolete. The spread also retains touches from its Victorian-era youth, including marble fireplaces, and nods to modernity such as two parking spaces out back. Two-twenty-five Beacon is new to the market, too, wouldn't you know? The 12-room townhouse wants $7,900,000. Interestingly enough, that jaw-dropper of a tag makes 225 Beacon only the 11th-priciest home on the Boston market right now. It's been that kind of year. Happy Tuesday.
