Once a two-family, this house is now a fully renovated free-standing single-family with sunny rooms, off-street parking, and a small lawn. French doors just inside the entry lead to the living room with a shiny black gas fireplace. The dining room has a chandelier and leads to the kitchen, with its birch cabinets above dark countertops, stainless steel appliances, and an eating area with a checkerboard linoleum floor. A door leads to a patio and backyard. A full family bath completes the first floor.

The master suite dominates the second floor. The bedroom draws natural light from two corner windows. A hallway, lined with closets, leads to a gorgeous bathroom with a deep tub, separate steam shower, and double vanity. The second bedroom is large. A third room is a small office or bedroom. A bath has been converted into a laundry room.

The third floor is attic space converted to two bedrooms with sloping ceilings. The property includes a shared driveway and a parking area that fits four vehicles. Mary Collins of Century 21 Annex Realty in Quincy is holding an open house noon to 2 p.m. Sunday.
