Boston’s second-most-expensive home, located at the top of a 61-story tower that opened on Dalton Street last summer, sold Friday for $34 million.
The first of three Four Seasons One Dalton penthouses closed at around 1:18 p.m., according to a deed filed in Suffolk County. The name of the buyer wasn’t publicly disclosed, but The Wall Street Journal reported that Dell Technologies founder Michael Dell had one of the three penthouses under contract in 2017, according to The Boston Globe.
The two-story, 7,300-square-foot penthouse sold for $6 million below asking price. Developer Richard Friedman told the Boston Globe he couldn’t disclose the buyers identity, and real estate grantee Amy Moody McGrath of Goulston & Storrs couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
The Boston Globe reported that 84 units had closed sales as of Friday — a little more than half of the building. More units are under contract, including one of the two remaining penthouses.
“We’ve exceeded our expectations,” Friedman told the Boston Globe.
Many of One Dalton’s buyers are local, although roughly a third of the sales deeds, like the one filed Friday, have been shielded by trusts or LLCs that can protect a buyer’s identity. But the Boston Globe reports that many units appear to be owned by local business leaders, executives, doctors, and academics.
One Dalton penthouses, located on the 55th floor and above, include “cascading staircases, soaring ceilings, and a double-height terrace with outdoor fireplaces, creating an incomparable indoor/outdoor living experience,” according to OneDalton.com. “An abundance of natural light, skyline views, and private balconies provide the perfect setting for every occasion and everyday pleasure.”
