Positioned behind a wall of Roxbury puddingstone, this towering Victorian stands out with distinctive dragon-scale shingling, dormer gables, and a broad entry porch. Off the long front hallway is a formal dining room with bay windows, original oak wainscoting, a glass-front built-in china cabinet with bull’s-eye oak trim, and a fireplace with oak mantel. The living room has an elaborately carved oak mantel around the fireplace, an original mirror, and bay windows. The kitchen has a newer wood burning stove, but does not have an eating area and needs updating. The butler’s pantry has glass-fronted cabinets. Floors are original oak and ceilings are 10 feet.

Tall ceilings and oak floors continue on the second floor, where three bedrooms and a full showered bath flow off a wide transition space. The master has a bench under shallow bay windows and a walk-through closet/dressing room that links to the second bedroom. Each of the other two bedrooms have walk-in closets and all three have fireplaces. The final two bedrooms and a full bath are on the third floor, which also has an office. There is a full unfinished basement. The house sits on nearly all of the 3,830-square-foot lot.

Deborah Bernat of Hammond Residential Real Estate in Wellesley is the listing broker.
