Includes six fireplaces and 25-foot-long dining room

The 18-room, 6,134-square-foot Italianate mansion at 1 Berkeley Street in Cambridge’s Harvard Square last traded in 1998 for about $3,700,000 in today's dollars. It’s back on the market now through Coldwell Banker for $4,875,000, joining a veritable cavalcade of recent mega-listage in the People’s Republic.

The house, which dates from the 1850s, features a sky-lighted staircase, six fireplaces, five full bathrooms, and a 25-foot-long dining room beneath a coved ceiling. There’s also a library with plenty of built-in shelves and a door to side porch to boot.
