With curved, red roof shingles and a tan stucco exterior, the Spanish Mission influence on this West Roxbury home is obvious from the street, and it only gets more intense inside. The walls on the first floor are a creamy textured craftex offset by gumwood wainscoting, crown molding, and window trim stained a rich brown. In the hallway, a fake fireplace is overlooked by a bridal staircase that draws light from a stained-glass window. The L-shaped living room has shallow bay windows. Floors are oak.

The kitchen is updated with white cabinets and granite counters. The second-floor hall draws light from French doors to a Juliet balcony. The master has an updated bath, a double closet, and a chandelier. The two children’s bedrooms have good closet space. The family bath has original subway tile walls and flooring. The yard includes a patio with a wisteria-draped pergola, a fountain, and fruit trees. There is a detached two-car garage. The basement, with half bath, is unfinished.

Carol Meehan of Hammond Real Estate in Brookline is holding an open house from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Sunday.
