From the Herald: Ensconced at 374-380 Commonwealth Ave. since 1913, the private club has an agreement to sell part of 380 Commonwealth Ave. to Boston’s Sea-Dar Real Estate Inc., which wants to build an addition and add five condos in the building. “We’re selling what we deem as an underutilized portion of our Comm.

After a major renovation, the townhouse mansion at 74 Beacon Street, overlooking the Public Garden, is back on the market for $13.95 million.

ASB Real Estate is paying about $91 million for 333-335, 342 and 352 Newbury St. and nearby 801 Boylston Street, totaling 51,249 square feet, or about $1,780 per square foot.

With a location and digs like that, we have a feeling Roman is going to like Boston. This Zillow link has a full slide show. Photo via [...]
Technically, it’s called the Mason House, the 11-bedroom townhouse at 211 Commonwealth Avenue now up for sale for $14.99 million (not to be confused with $14.9 million). Still, with the sale being handled by Jonathan Radford at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, maybe the townhouse should just be pitched as the Amadeus House, considering how its [...]

No sooner than posting the item below, we picked up a print copy of the Boston Courant with the lead headline: “Fisher Reconsiders Beacon Dorm Plan.” Apparently, the storm of neighborhood controversy has forced the school to reconsider putting new dorms at 115 and 139-141 Beacon Street, each holding 43 beds for students (115 is [...]
