Location: Boston, Mass.
Price: $6,500,000
The Skinny: Occupying two floors in a 1863 Back Bay townhouse, this luxurious duplex measures nearly 4,000 square feet, adorned with plenty of historic detail, with views over the Charles River to Cambridge. It last sold in 2004 for $3.5M, but now the apartment is back for $3M more. That's right, $6.5M, which is a big markup, especially since the market tanked in the interim. Still, the luxury finishes and history add up to one desirable unit, as do the two garage parking spaces and a pair of private balconies overlooking the river. The sprawling condo houses four bedrooms and 4.5 baths and currently sports an Asian-influenced design aesthetic.
