Boston’s Most Expensive Rental Home asks for $40K per month

Andrea Divirgilio / September 20, 2012

The Benjamin Mansion at 74 Beacon Street is one of the grandest and elegant buildings on historic Beacon Hill, a 19th century downtown Boston residential neighborhood situated directly of the Boston Public Garden and the Boston Common. This magnificent residence boasting granite façade, elegant copper and slate roofs, a brick rear exterior, and stunning roof deck with swimming pool has actually been renovated to a degree rarely seen. Elegant on all 6-levels, this single-family attached residence with 8,450 square feet of splendid indoor living space, which earlier came on the sales market for $14.95 million, and later got deepest price cut of full $1 million, is now on the rental market for whopping $40,000 a month, to become Boston’s most expensive rental home. However, this rental price seems suitable for this Boston’s staggeringly exquisite 6-floor mansion that offers amenities like a heated lap pool, surrounding roof deck, 6-bedrooms, 9-baths, 8-working fireplaces, a large elevator, gym, media room, and wine cellar, to name a few.
