Despite all of the sad news in regards to the real estate market, one Boston real estate sale is making news and lifting hopes. Selling for $15.6 million, a single-family home in Weston earned the titles of “most expensive home purchased in Weston” and “most expensive Boston real estate sale in Greater Boston in 4 years”. Though this sale may be a great deal larger than what you are looking to buy or sell in Boston real estate, it should be somewhat encouraging that a sale of this magnitude was made despite the harsh housing market. This 15,000-square-foot palatial house was custom-built on 7.7 acres and offers views of the Blue Hills. It includes 6 bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms, 8 fireplaces, wine cellar, billiards room, landscaped gardens, a tennis court, pool, and a pool house. This large piece of Boston real estate was sold by Mark and Diane Goldman to Stephen V. Kenney—trustee for 75 Doublet Hill Realty Trust. The house had been on the Boston real estate market since last spring. Apparently, the offer was made and accepted last year and the closing day was March 31, 2011. The home was purchased by the Goldmans in 1996 for the sum of $1.7 million—according to records acquired by The Warren Group. It was last assessed for $9.4 million. This sale attests to the fact that there is still demand when it comes to high-end Boston real estate.
