The mansion was on the top 10 in the world, behind Dubai, Monaco, London and Paris.
There were 1,064 new listings for luxury condos for the second quarter of the financial year, the highest in five years.
For the first time, the number of listings for residential property in New England grew by 2.4 per cent over the same period.
