With its unusual angles and dimensions, this home provides a surprising canvas for the current owner, Joanie Faiella Glynn, to show off her painterly skills as a muralist. The walls of the dining room are finished in a striking marbling technique, while in the living room, one wall sports a mural of an English country manor, and another faux marble painted in and around the fireplace’s wooden mantelpiece. In the kitchen a trompe l’oeil window looking onto a pastoral scene is painted on one wall.
The dining room also has unusual features: a window seat with stylish window treatments, a cathedral ceiling with three skylights, and a bank of sliding doors that lead to a large deck. The living room also has high ceilings, and behind pocket doors is the kitchen, with granite counters, recessed lighting, a small eating area, and large pantry.
The second level has two good-sized bedrooms, both with parquet flooring, and a full bath between. On the next level is an office with built-in cabinets that Glynn uses as a studio because of the natural light from the skylights. The final level has the master bedroom, a full bath, and a den. The floors are parquet and each bedroom has exposed beams, large windows, and adequate closets. The house sits in the back of a 1-acre lot. Listing broker John Miele of Jack Conway in Hanson is holding an open house Sunday from noon to 2 p.m.
