From the street, this house is a pleasing, rambling Cape with a long farmer’s porch and a smattering of dormers. Yet at the rear of the house has a Victorian-like tower that has on each of its three levels an alcove with bay windows that look onto the North River. The first floor has a large kitchen with a granite-topped prep island, an eating area, and living room with a stone fireplace. The floors are oak. A large three-season room with knotty pine paneling is off the kitchen. A full bath is adjacent to a first-floor bedroom.

Down the hall, a stairway leads to a large bedroom, with showered bath, above the two-car garage. On the second floor, the master suite has a massive bedroom space, large closets, skylights, and a private deck with river views. The bath has a whirlpool tub and separate shower. The bath also connects to a child’s bedroom. The above-ground basement has a kitchenette, a bedroom, full bath, and family room. The large backyard slopes gently to the river. A path leads to a wooden dock in the river. Elaine Shea of Success Real Estate in Norwell is the listing broker.
