The 17-room, 5,743-square-foot shingled single-family at 17 Francis Avenue along Mid-Cambridge's bitterly ironic Professors Row is new to the market. It dates from just after the turn of the 20th century and includes six bedrooms as well as a two-car garage. More importantly, we think, 17 Francis' tag makes it the priciest new listing in all of Cambridge. The house is asking $2,925,000. To put that in perspective, that is slightly more than half of the asking for Cambridge's most expensive listing right now, the $4,575,000 2 Blanchard Road.
