Just by dint of its location—in West Cambridge, just to the edge of the Harvard Square area, and near the Fresh Pond Parkway—the Queen Anne Victorian at 8 Traill Street was going to carry a monster tag even by Cambridge standards.
But the 16-room, 8,264-square-foot house dating from 1893 dropped January 30 for $10.8 million. That is $1 million more expensive than the next-priciest Cambridge listing at 8 Hubbard Park Road.
The Traill Street expanse includes flourishes such as nine fireplaces and Palladian windows for lots of light. There is also a three-car garage and nearly half an acre of land. Have a look-see. Leading Edge’s Myra von Turkovich has the listing (as she does for 8 Hubbard Park too).
