The living room tells the tale of this Cape home built in 1810 but expanded and renovated since: The floors are wide planked pine from the 19th century while ceiling lights are of the modern recessed variety. There is an original working brick fireplace, three large windows, and a small built-in cabinet. The dining room has a built-in china cabinet, planked flooring, and a period appropriate chandelier. A full bath, located between the living room and kitchen, has a claw-foot tub.

The airy kitchen, which was added on, has a brick fireplace, center island, oak floors, and a door to a brick patio. A long hallway has a laundry tucked in its closets and leads to a spacious master suite that was added in the 1960s. The room has great natural light and two closets, and a full bathroom.

The remaining two bedrooms on the second floor of the original house are reached by a narrow staircase. They have low ceilings, original planked floors, a single window each and need freshening. The house is near the MBTA’s Weymouth and West Hingham commuter rail stops and is also a short walk to Bare Cove Park. The house has central air and a septic system sized for four bedrooms.
