The latest real estate news from Curbed Boston, right this way...

BACK BAYThe Mason House at 211 Commonwealth Avenue chopped its price by $1,000,000—the biggest Boston price-cut of 2013 so far. Still, the mansion, with a new tag of $15,500,000, remains the priciest in the city.

BEACON HILL—What's the ultimate condo amenity in Boston? How's about a guest cottage? This spread at 20 Chestnut Street asking $4,300,000 advertises just that off the garden.

SOUTH END—The developer of 275 Albany Street has scrapped the hotel component of the two-building project. It will now be comprised totally of apartments (as many as 380 total) and retail as well as parking.

FORT POINTDetails are out on the latest developments in the neighborhood—319 A Street and 327-337 Summer Street. They are to be a mix of apartments and office spaces, with many of the apartments bucking the micro trend in Southie.
