My Notes

Edit
Penthouse #5 is a luxurious and meticulously renovated 3,100 + sq. ft. three bedroom, three bath plus family room residence located in a historically significant (McKim, Mead and White circa 1886) established luxury sunny side Commonwealth Avenue mansion with ELEVATOR. This exquisite two level condominium offers many features, including two expansive terraces, two back to back GARAGE parking spaces and a two story skylit entrance foyer. Though elegantly contemporary in architectural design and amenities, the current owners hired a renowned Belgian design firm to recreate an old world ambiance using materials such as reclaimed antique French oak, Blue Heaven stone from Belgium and 18th century marble tiles and marble sink. This magnificent and outstanding residence offers spectacular views of the Boston skyline, Prudential Center and Commonwealth Avenue.  More Less

Market guide

Zillow predicts Back Bay home values will fall 2.2% next year, compared to a 1.6% increase for Boston as a whole. Among Back Bay homes, this home is valued 391.7% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 33.5% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Back Bay, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 21.1% lower than in Boston, and 59.4% lower than the national average. This lower local number could help Back Bay home values rise more quickly than other regions in Boston.
