The 3,736-square-foot townhouse at 17 West Cedar Street in Beacon Hill dropped on the sales market in mid-June. It had last traded for $1,525,000 way back in April 1997—or approximately 160 years after it was first built. Since that trade, it had been completely renovated and left with flourishes such as humidification and sound systems as well as a hot tub out back. There's also an elevator, central air and a wine cellar. The nine-room, four-fireplace spread found a buyer fairly quickly and we've been speculating since the summer about its closing price. In the end, the townhouse dating from 1836 went for its exact asking price of $5,195,000.
