Time for the elves to clear out of 38 Grove Street? The townhouse was revamped to c. 1851 standards (which apparently means nine marble fireplaces, five marble bathrooms, and two marble powder rooms) after a buyer picked it up for $6.9 million. The list price when it first hit the market last summer was $15.9 million, and the house has now officially sold. The final price: $14 million. Not as close to the original ask as the rumors led us to suspect (and in fact the place was PriceChopped long after it was reportedly in contract). Props on that negotiation, anonymous buyer.
