The Skinny: A reader wrote in to say we should cover recent home sales "in Boston's perimeter neighborhoods, where mere mortals can afford to live." More than fair enough. We give you this 3-BR, 2-BA, 110-year-old Colonial in West Roxbury with gorgeous oak floors throughout and a picturesque fireplace in the living room. Fit for a mere mortal, yes, but spacious enough for your average deity wanting a break from the whole Beacon Hill-Back Bay-South End circuit.
