The federal-style townhouse at 6 Louisburg Square in Beacon Hill dates from 1840, and retains signs of that provenance throughout its 7,494 square feet. That includes the nine fireplaces, the molding, and the hardwood floors.
The age isn’t all good, however—something 6 Louisburg’s listing through Campion & Company is frank about. The townhouse “is awaiting a custom renovation to transform it into the masterpiece it once was.”
First, though, there’s the matter of the bill. The townhouse is asking $10.5 million as of the weekend. The tag isn’t that surprising given Louisburg Square’s reputation as one of Boston’s toniest enclaves and the sheer size of the townhouse itself.
In fact, it might even be considered a song. There’s another similarly sized townhouse at 17 Louisburg Square that’s asking $20.5 million. What’d you think?
