In August, the 5-BR, 2-BA colonial at 54 Grampian Way in Dorchester dropped on the sales market for a rather precise $997,999.
That asking was enough to position the gorgeous house dating from 1885 to be the most expensive single-family home sale in Dot history—it just had to go for over its asking a bit.The price quickly came down, though, by late September to $949,000.
Then, on the last day of that month, 54 Grampian disappeared from the market.It then returned in early November for $899,000 through Gibson Sotheby’s, and quickly went to contract.Now we know the closing price: $897,000—or, roughly, $100,000 off its original asking. Still. Gorgeous.
