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.
