$1M Price-Chop; Winnie the Pooh's Pied-à-Terre

It's Friday, and that means it's time for Curbed Cuts: all the latest neighborhood news from our sister site Curbed Boston.

BACK BAY - The magisterial townhouse at 10 Marlborough Streetwhich hit the sales market for the first time in 44 years last October for $13.5M, only to see its tag slashed by $750K two months later—has chopped its price again, this time by a cool mill.

CAMBRIDGE - Winnie the Pooh has moved back into his Cambridge pied-à-terre. The beloved bear, who resides primarily in Sussex, England, lost the home next to Harvard's Science Center rather abruptly two months ago when it was chopped to pieces. At the time, it was reported that Pooh was house-hunting elsewhere in the People's Republic, though he appears to be enamored of the location of his once and future home. A new roof, door and signage can be found now at the stump of the old tree.

SOUTH END - The 10-block lot at 275 Albany Street in the northeast corner of the South End began its developmental life as a plan for a 408-unit hotel. Life changes: The lot will now host 220 apartments and 325 hotel rooms in two buildings, with the apartment building being 18 stories, unusually high for the area.

BACK BAY - The 4,083-square-foot, 2-BR, 2.5-BA penthouse at 100 Beacon Street has a master bedroom suite, 24-hour doorman service and valet parking for two vehicles, as well as extra-high ceilings and windows on all four sides. That's nice and all, but head upstairs for the real 360-degree view: a private, landscaped rooftop deck with stunning cityscape and river vistas. As you've probably already guessed, the asking price, like the roof deck, towers over most in the city, at an eye-popping $10.5 million.
