This property in Brookline is on the market for $18 million.

A Brookline mansion is up for sale with an asking price of $18 million, making it one of the most expensive properties to hit the Boston market in the past decade, according to the property’s real estate agent.

With four bedrooms and six full bathrooms, the home sits at the end of a gated driveway on 3.7 acres in Brookline near The Country Club. Built in 2006 and designed by local architect Adolfo Perez, the 9,094-square-foot mansion has six fireplaces and a Zen garden. Its four-car garage and outdoor swimming pool are heated.

“It’s been quietly on the market. There have been just a couple of showings,” said Debbie Gordon, the Coldwell Banker agent handling the sale. Whoever acquires the property, she added, will live “just around the corner” from New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

The mansion was assessed last year at $7.8 million, and property taxes for this year come to more than $89,000.

Its owner, Doug Sharon, is a managing director with Morgan Stanley. He and his wife have moved to Miami, according to Gordon.

Other high-priced homes to hit the market in recent years include a Cohasset mansion currently listed for $22 million. In 2011, a Wayland estate was offered at $25 million, but there were no takers. It was later acquired by the lender in a foreclosure.

In 2001, a Brookline mansion sold for $18.5 million in a private sale.
