This three-bedroom Arlington house is full of ­angles, bright colors, and distinct window views. The 1925 home was renovated by architect owners, who created an array of unique spaces including a window seat, ­inset display shelves, and an office loft. Located on a leafy suburban street, the house is green with white shutters, and has a white-picket fence and small covered deck.

Rounded front windows ­offer a preview of the interesting character inside the home. The entrance leads to a large open space that includes the living and dining rooms and has a cathedral ceiling, hardwood floors, and rounded picture windows. Above the front window, a nine-panel, stained-glass window accents the room. The main room leads to two bedrooms as well as the kitchen, another open space with an attached family room overlooking the well-maintained back yard. The kitchen includes granite countertops and an eat-in island. There are maple cabinets, stainless steel appliances and more color: bright blue tile above the stove and decorative colored glass above the picture window looking out to the backyard and mahogany deck.

The attached family room includes a round wall with large windows and working fireplace. Stairs lead to a bonus room currently used as a child’s bedroom and the second-floor master bedroom that has the house’s second fireplace. From the bedroom, there’s a second set of stairs to a small loft with space for a desk. Off the kitchen, a finished basement provides enough space for a couch and a flat-screen television.

The owners recently found mold in one section of the basement wall and had it professionally remediated. Shawn Flynn of Redfin is the listing agent. An open house is scheduled for 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday.
