So how nuts are home prices around here?

Well check out the top ten sales of 2012, which range from $12.5 million for a 15,000-square-foot Back Bay townhouse overlooking the Public Garden down to a $6.2 million Weston mansion compound.

The list, drawn from MLS listings, was sent over by Coldwell Banker, which has bragging rights on six of the top ten deals.


  • 103 Rolling Lane, Weston, $6,500,000: Weston mansion overlooking Weston Golf Club. This "chic, beautiful home" features "privately sited romantic beauty," whatever the heck that means. I like the word "chic" though.
  •  36 Love Lane,Weston, 6,250,000: Better love it for $6.2 million. The write-up is over the top."Enter through stone pillars on a long tree-lined drive and arrive at a beautiful Shingle Style Estate secluded on four lush acres in a premier southside location."
  • 15 Claridge Drive, Weston, $6,250,000: Ho hum, another Weston mansion with a silly write-up: "Impressive European-inspired manor amid 3.74 park-like acres on private cul-de-sac. Old World craftsmanship in understatedly elegant design by noted architect Thomas Catalano."
