A penthouse at One Dalton, the luxury condo and hotel tower completed in Back Bay last year, has sold for $34 million, according to a deed filed January 10. It’s believed to be the second-priciest home sale in Boston history.

Still, it’s well off the $40 million asking price that One Dalton developer Carpenter & Company had sought for the two-story, 7,300-square-foot spread. But who’s quibbling? The penthouse is one of the highest homes ever completed in Boston. That’s because it’s atop a tower stretching 61 floors and 742 feet (699 feet at its highest habitable spot).

One Dalton’s 215-room, Four Seasons-operated hotel portion opened in May, and the 160 ultra-luxury condos that start on the 26th floor are rolling out now. As of January 10, the average sales price of the 84 units that had sold in the tower was $5.7 million, per the Globe’s Tim Logan. They have ranged from $680,000 to the tens of millions.

As for the buyer of the $34 million penthouse, that's hidden behind an LLC for now. And, as for the most expensive home sale in Boston history, that would be the $35 million trade of a Millennium Tower penthouse in 2016. That unit is on the market again for $45 million. Act now.
