The eight-room carriage house at 77 Chestnut Street in Beacon Hill thundered onto the sales market in mid-June 2015 for $10,500,000. The 6,550-square-foot spread dating from 1899 offered flourishes such as Juliet balconies off the sunken living room, a private roof deck, four bedrooms, six bathrooms (three full), and a media room.
But what really gave pause was the house's promise of parking for up to six cars in its private motor court. What's more, a wood-paneled elevator is available from said motor court to whisk visitors to the upper floors of the five-level pile, according to the Robert Paul Properties listing.
Now that amenity and the rest of 77 Chestnut are that much closer within reach. The price earlier this week came down a cool $900,000 to $9,600,000. At just over $1,465 a square foot, the carriage is now a veritable steal by Boston luxury standards.
