The 13-room, 5,814-square-foot colonial revival at 237 Marlborough Street in Back Bay is now asking $10.9 million.

That titanic sum makes the townhouse dating from 1899 merely the 10th most expensive residence for sale in Boston right now. (The most expensive is a $45 million penthouse at Millennium Tower that’s been on the market nearly 500 days.)

The Marlborough townhouse has five full bathrooms and the potential for four bedrooms. There are also two decks and two laundry rooms, and the tag covers garage parking. There’s an elevator to every floor too.

And, to put the asking tag in more perspective, the median sales price for a townhouse in downtown Boston was $1,311,500 during the final quarter of 2019, according to appraiser Miller Samuel and brokerage Douglas Elliman. Gibson Sotheby’s the Carucci Group has a the 237 Marlborough listing.
