This colonial in the Roslindale neighborhood is the largest home in our survey and has a very reasonable cost per square foot. OK, not as reasonable as we found in Atlanta or Pittsburgh, but nowhere near what we found in New York or San Diego. There's a full bath, formal dining room with a pantry and enclosed front and back porches on the first floor. On the second floor, there are three bedrooms and a study. The third floor has two more bedrooms and a sitting area. Additional features include stained glass and hardwood floors. There's also a detached one-car garage.
