A 6,100-square-foot unit in the “No. 6” Newbury Street Residences building, so named because it is above the Newbury Street Chanel store, sold for $11,480,000 on May 6, as Curbed Boston first pointed out.
That puts it into the top tier of pricey Boston pads.
Though we still don’t know exactly how much the Millennium Tower penthouse sold for, it was listed for $37.5 million, most likely making it the biggest home sale ever in the city.
Leaving aside the Millennium Tower, 6 Newbury Street, Unit 3, is a few million dollars under Boston’s previous record sale, which happened last November when 300 Boylston Street, Unit #1005-1006 sold for $15.4 million dollars. A condo in Back Bay’s Mandarin Oriental sold for $12.5 million in May of 2015.
The single-floor unit at 6 Newbury Street has four bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half bathrooms. It also has direct elevator access, floor-to-ceiling windows, an open concept living/dining room, and wine storage. It’s steps from the Public Garden and all the shops on Newbury Street.
The building was constructed in 2012 and was one of the iconic street’s first new constructions in many years. All the units were sold as shells so that the buyer could put his or her personal touch on the project.
