Well, it's official. Halcyon House, the house that was the most expensive one for sale at the time it went under contract just sold for eleven million— one and a half million less than its ask of $12.5M, which technically brings it down to the second most expensive listing at the time of contract, since there was one on Benton Place for $12M (since that time there's been another one listed for $16M that we reported yesterday). Halcyon House has had a series of price chops from its original price of $30M. But the most interesting thing about this sale is that the buyers are the same people who bought Evermay (for $22M), a media-shy couple who made it big in the pharmaceutical industry. Since they have decided to turn Evermay into a base for their non-profit, all the neighbors want to know what is going to happen to Halcyon.
