The master suite in this Queen Anne Victorian isn’t so much a bedroom as it is an aerie with views of the Charles River. It takes up the third floor of the tower that juts out from the front of this updated house in the Island neighborhood. The suite includes an office with a skylight, a full bath, and a sitting area along with bedroom space. The suite has built-in shelving, and a ceiling fan in the 18-foot cone-shaped ceiling.

The first floor has a formal living room with towering 10-foot ceilings and the long windows that make Victorians so sunny. Sliding French pocket doors lead to the formal dining room, which has a fireplace with carved wooden mantle. Both rooms have crown molding. The galley-like kitchen has long, black counters, cabinets with doors topped by windows and is adjacent to a family room. There is also a half bath.

The wide staircase features a large window with bull’s-eye glass panels, and the second floor has three bedrooms, each of which has a good-sized closet and numerous windows. Flooring is the original knotty pine. The family bath has a shower with subway tile surround and Nantucket wainscoting. The basement is unfinished. The fenced yard has a paving stone patio area and small grassy patch. There is a three-car driveway. Listing broker Hans Brings of Coldwell Banker in Waltham is holding an open house Sunday from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
