10 Whales Beyond Boston! Think Versailles... and the Red Sox

View as Map

Almost exactly (don't you hate that phrase) a month ago we reveled in the amount of mega-listings in Boston. Now, as Whale Week 2013 concludes, we decided to turn our gaze beyond Boston proper, to the surrounding towns and cities, and take stock of their big-time price tags. What'd we find? Everything from the priciest listing in Somerville (a relatively modest $795,000) to a Milton estate modeled after a chateau at Versailles. Mon dieu.

53 Francis Avenue

Copy Link

The 5-BR, 5.5-BA 6,314-square-foot manse rests along what used to be commonly called Professors' Row near Harvard. It's asking $3,950,000, and is the priciest listing on the Cambridge market right now.

Davis Square Lofts, #2C

Copy Link

This 2-BR, 2-BA, 1,314-square-footer lies (lay? has lain?) just off the Minute Man path, with plenty of exposed brick and beams. It wants $795,000, and is the priciest Somerville listing showing up on the MLS right now.

1014 Boylston Street

Copy Link

This more than 2 acre estate in Chestnut Hill includes a 9,715-square-foot mansion with six bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. It has a tag of $8,400,000. Gobsmacking, yes, but it was chopped by $500,000 just a few days ago. (This puppy really needs a formal name, by the way, something with "abbey" or "manor" in it. CORRECTION: It does, our fault: the Balemore Estate.)
