It's Whale Week 2013, wherein we look at Boston's high-rolling-est real estate. And what better way to deep-dive into that then to chart the 25 most expensive condo and single-family home deals in the city's history? You may recognize some of the whales here—Mass. Governor Alvan Fuller, John Quincy Adams, a certain quarterback on early off-season—and some of the whale addresses they fancied.
And you may also pick up on the repeats in this top 25: As is the way in nature, whales beget whales, with some addresses selling really high one year, only to outdo that price later on. In fact, the two biggest home trades in Boston history happened at the same many-terraced Mandarin Oriental penthouse. Anyway, enjoy the whale watching!
