Mouth-watering might not be the adjective you’d think to use to describe a piece of real estate, but this property’s listing agent begs to differ: “It’s like a beautiful cake you almost don’t want to cut into,” says Don Benoit of this Dorchester Victorian with Arts and Crafts accents. He’s referring to the embellished architecture that helps it resemble a multi-tiered confection, but also the charcoal gray exterior with buttercream trim and strawberry corbels.

As appealing as the street view is, it’s fully worth cutting into. Luminous gray walls flow from the foyer into the dining room, centered by a spherical pendant light from Design Within Reach. Through the doorway into the eat-in, honed terracotta-hued tiles on the floors contrast glossy white subway tiling on the walls. Another sweet element is the window seat with hidden storage that’s nestled in between a couple of banks of built-in shelving. And, after you prep something to eat on the marble countertops, you can take it through the back door over to the condo’s shared deck, where a few steps lead down into an organic veggie garden and fenced-in dining area.

The bedrooms shine too, from one chamber with yellow sponge-painted walls, to a rounded den housed in the residence’s turret. Another bedroom, in the southeast corner of the third floor, has been converted into an artist’s studio. The sunshine pouring into the creative space in the early mornings and afternoons is just the icing on the cake.
