Boston's 10 Most Expensive Homes for Sale Right Now

View as Map

'Tis August and the dog days of summer are set to settle upon us like a house guest who won't leave. Let's dig into the month, though, with a stone-cold romp through the 10 most expensive homes for sale in Boston right this unseasonably cool second. The long-listed Benjamin Mansion tops the run-down and the aged 56 Beacon listing is there, too, but some relative newcomers make appearances as well, including the penthouse at the Burrage Mansion and a combined unit at the busy, busy Heritage on the Garden. Cool.
