The farther out you get in Boston, the more you get housing-wise—at least a lot of the time.

Case in point: The 1,951-square-foot colonial at 29 Denton Terrace in bucolic Roslindale, one of the city’s southernmost neighborhoods. The house dating from 1920 includes four bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a sunroom and a large patio out back. The house retains its original hardwood floors, and the kitchen cabinetry pops.

Even with all of this, 29 Denton is asking $649,000—or $332 a square foot—through Insight Realty’s Steven Musto. The median sales price for detached single-families in Boston in January was $655,000, and the average price per square foot was $413, according to the latest figures from the Greater Boston Association of Realtors.

So this one kind of falls right in the middle and along the mean. What’d you think?
