'Twas a wowza year in Boston real estate, and there's no better illustration of that than a run-down of the priciest house sales (for a run-down of the priciest condo sales, click here). These titanic deals start with the record tag paid for the Ames-Webster Mansion, which the new owner plans to adapt to residential use, and dwindle to a cut-off of $4,325,000. A couple of caveats before we get to the fun: These are all sales that closed in the calendar year ending midnight Tuesday; and they all involve deals for residential use, even if the property in question (like the Ames-Webster) was/is being used for something else like offices or apartments.
