Given its age and location, there is a lot to recommend the 5,165-square-foot, 11-room townhouse at 381 Beacon Street in Back Bay. Its bones date from 1869 and it rests almost smack-dab in the middle of one of Boston’s tonier neighborhoods.
It also has quite a bit of heft: That square-footage, three and a half bathrooms, the potential for five bedrooms, and a parking court out back for at least two cars. There is also a roof deck.
But then the Campion & Company listing mentions “multiple wet bars” and it’s easy to see why the asking price is $6.49 million. Right?
