A broad farmer’s porch provides a welcoming tone to this renovated bungalow a short walk from the Needham Junction commuter rail station. Upgrades include new windows and reconditioned fir floors. In the fireplaced living room, three-quarter height wainscoting still graces the walls. Two built-in china shelves with glass windows are in the adjacent dining room.

The kitchen is a long rectangle with distressed-look shelving, a granite counter, and a breakfast nook with extra large windows. Appliances are stainless steel. There is a half-bath. The first-floor master is spacious, has good closet space and its own full showered bath. An adjacent bedroom is small and currently used as a nursery. The two second-floor bedrooms are irregularly shaped, but each offers a private nook, good closet space, and original built-cabinets. One has a window seat. The basement is mostly unfinished but for the laundry room. Current owners have installed a French drain system. Ceilings are 9 feet.

Lois Baho of Jack Conway Real Estate in West Roxbury is holding an open house noon to 2 p.m. Sunday.
