The nine-room, 3,016-square-foot Victorian at 25 Peter Parley Road in Jamaica Plain's Egleston Square hit the sales market in mid-July looking very much like it belonged in mid-September. The 4-BR, 2.5-BA has the look of a farmhouse about it, especially with the rustic red exterior. The original late-19th-century fireplaces and wainscoting don't hurt, either. As it happens, a deal for 25 Peter Parley closed just as summer was unofficially ending and fall beginning. The house was originally asking $879,000. Twenty-five Peter Parley in the end went for $919,000. That is a full $40K over the asking and thoroughly bucks a trend in the wider Boston housing market.
