A winding driveway, surrounded by rhododendrons and trees, leads to the shingle and brick house architect Ralph Williams designed for his family in 1963. A wide entryway opens into the main room, an open space with towering 18-foot ceilings, brick and bamboo flooring, and a massive window that floods the house with light. The room includes a fireplace faced with bricks in a herringbone pattern.
Just past the fireplace is the large master bedroom with access to a small greenhouse. One wall is given over to a deep closet. A private door leads to a showered bathroom, with mahogany paneling, updated sink, and Italian tile flooring. Off the main room is the dining area with sliding glass doors leading to a small patio. The updated galley-style kitchen has creamy white granite counter tops and backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and cherry cabinets with glass doors. A pantry and a large laundry room are around the corner. A short hallway leads to a large rectangular room, once used by Williams as his office, with beamed ceilings and carpeted floor. The second level has two bedrooms off an elevated walkway that are separated by a full bath. There is a two-car garage. The property covers 1.5 acres at the top of a small hill. John Mahoney of Streetcar Realty in Norwood is holding an open house Sunday from noon to 2 p.m.
