The 1,410-square-foot Unit 3 at 105 Marlborough Street in Back Bay traded in August 2014 for $1,175,000 and then underwent an extensive renovation. That redo left it with a more open layout as well as a floating steel staircase to a private, 600-square-foot roof deck. The kitchen was also significantly updated as was the main bedroom, which includes a walk-in closet with retractable stairs to a 240-square-foot storage space. Neat. The whole shebang went up for sale in mid-December for $2,295,000 and a deal for it just closed. Unit 3 in the end went for $2,205,000, or $90K off the asking, which surprises us. Does it surprise you?
