In one of the city’s poshest neighborhoods stands a four-story brick residence that stays true to its French Second Empire roots but with a few modern-day twists, including a yoga room and a glass stairway to the roof deck.

The 12-room home at 285 Marlborough St. was the priciest sale in Greater Boston last week, going for $6,700,000 on March 1. The listing agent was  Michael Carucci of Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty.

The home was built in 1899 and has six bedrooms, five full baths, and two half baths. On 0.07 acres, the home comes with four deeded direct-access parking spots.

The 4,820-square-foot property features high ceilings, period molding, and in-law apartment with a private entrance. A library with an en-suite bath shares the second floor with the master suite, which also boasts a fireplace, a windowed seating area, and a hidden walk-in closet.

The third floor is home to two bedrooms, two baths, and a yoga room. A glass staircase ushers residents to a private roof deck offering views of the Boston skyline.
