Juliet has her choice of balconies in this three-floor Victorian-influenced home in Wolcott Square, a short walk from both Hyde Park’s Readville commuter rail station and the Neponset River Reservation. Recently finished, the home emphasizes communal spaces and has an airy feel with its 10-foot ceilings as well as hardwood floors throughout.

The first-floor living room features six large bay windows. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and dark granite counters. The adjacent eating area is warmed both by natural light and by a gas fireplace with a red brick mantel.

The second floor has a second living room with its own gas fireplace, an entertainment center nook, and one of two large balconies. The two bedrooms on this floor are mirror images with good closet space and bay windows. There is a family bath with a shower. The third floor has two bedrooms, including one with the second balcony that can accommodate a small table and two chairs. Storage space lines the walls of both bedrooms. There is a large laundry room with half-bath on the first floor. The basement is unfinished.

Listing broker Michael Hunt of the Tierney Realty Group in Hyde Park will hold an open house from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Sunday.
