Blockbuster Back Bay maisonette spans two buildings

New, 5 comments

Includes 40-foot living room

With a tag of $9,950,000, Unit 1-3 at 200-202 Beacon Street is one of the most expensive listings in Boston right now. And for good reason.

The 5,410-square-foot, nine-room spread spans two Back Bay buildings and three floors, starting at the garden level.

It includes a 40-foot-long living room and a library; the potential for six bedrooms; a main bedroom suite that itself has the potential for a library (and already has a kitchenette); a roof deck; four garaged parking spaces; and Charles River views.

Unit 1-3 is also a rare example of a maisonette in Boston. The quasi-single-family setup is common in cities such as New York and London, but hasn’t really taken here.

This particular rarity was a collaboration between New York-based interior designer Bunny Williams and Boston-based architect Guy Grassi. Beth Dickerson of Gibson Sotheby’s has the listing.
