'Singular' Daniel Burnham-Designed Mansion Asks $8.95M


All aboard! We're headed to the North Shore, where "Kenilworth's signature home" awaits. Designed by renowned architect and urban visionary Daniel Burnham, the broker copy isn't playing loose with the facts when it dubs the grand mansion "one of the North Shore's finest homes." But even that kind of architectural prestige hasn't been enough to score a buyer. We're guessing it has something to do with price. Real estate in the realm of $8.95M ($883/sq ft!) seldom flies off the shelf. The stunning 7/7 home has been on the market for nine months and we've yet to see price chop. Inside, the tasteful renovation pulls in plenty of vintage charm, along with a media room, library, and a home gym. Set on a over-sized lot with gardens, coach house, and a fountain, the 11,000-square foot home is also replete with hardwood floors, fireplaces, wine cellar, and an outdoor pool. It sold for $4.5M back in '05, so this adventure hopes to net a tidy sum.
