The Century 21 Commonwealth listing for the eight-room, 2,398-square-foot colonial at 5 Huntoon Street in Dorchester’s southern reaches describes the pile as akin to Hogwarts in Harry Potter or the castle in the King Arthur tales.

Parts of the circa-1890 property certainly do look positively medieval or at least deliberately baroque thanks to some formidable woodworking.

The house with a finished attic, a two-tier deck, a two-car garage, and the potential for four bedrooms is currently asking $799,000.
