The 7,575-square-foot, five-bedroom, five-bathroom and two half bathroom home on Marlborough Street was last sold in 2016 for $12 million. It was completely redone by architect Ronald Payne of Payne Collins Design Inc., interior designer Paula Daher, and the Feeney Bros. development team to create what is essentially a brand new home.
“The property was a complete gut renovation. It’s an absolutely magnificent home,” said Tracy Campion, of Campion & Company Fine Homes Real Estate. “It is in mint condition. which is unusual for a whole townhouse, especially in Back Bay.”
The home is owned by Jeffrey S. Bornstein, the vice chair and chief financial officer of General Electric Co., according to property records.
Mr. Bornstein is in the process of buying a smaller home in the Seaport area, according to a spokesperson from GE.
The renovation also has another rare luxury for the neighborhood, a two-car garage and more outdoor parking. “That you can drive into the garage is unusual alone in Back Bay, and then you can take the elevator to all six floors,” Ms. Campion said.
The family-oriented home has an open kitchen and family room on the second floor, as well as a family room on the top floor, which leads to a terrace with a hot tub and city views.

The home has high ceilings, an open layout, and is located on the sunny side of the street, according to Ms. Campion. Other features include smart home technology, a sound system, new electrical and plumbing, a formal parlor, a wood-paneled library, a dining room with wet bar and a sweeping staircase, according to the brochure. There’s flexibility on the third and fourth floors for living arrangements.
The brick-and-sandstone home was built in 1892 by John Lyman Faxon, who also designed Rollins Chapel at Dartmouth College and the Hotel Victoria in Boston, among other projects, the brochure says.
The home was originally built for Frederick Bradbury, a turn of the century banker and treasurer of the Potter Drug and Chemical Company, according to Ms. Campion. It once belonged to Lawrence Curtis, a golfer who founded the United States Golf Association in 1894, according to the brochure for the property. The home was converted into a lodging house in the 1950s and fell into disrepair. It was damaged in a fire in 2011, before the recent renovation restored it to its single-family status.
“Usually when you sell a home there’s wear and tear, but this is in perfect condition and done in beautiful taste,” Ms. Campion said.
