This updated century-old Victorian, with high ceilings, seamlessly incorporates a contemporary wing with its own soaring cathedral ceilings. A covered side porch leads to the foyer. Off the foyer is a large office with bay windows, carved fireplace mantel, and wallpaper made of maps. The large living room also has a carved fireplace mantle, this one marble, as well as bay windows and broad crown molding. The formal dining room has a glass-front china cabinet, chandelier, bay windows, and access to a side porch. Adjacent is the new wing with a galley-style kitchen, black soapstone counters, and cherry cabinets overlooking the modern family room with eating area, fireplace, and recessed lighting. There is a bath.

On the second floor, there are back-to-back baths: one with a large shower and the other a clawfoot tub. The master hosts a king-size bed and double closets. The children’s bedrooms both have good closets and are comfortably sized. All windows are updated, customized to original designs. Flooring is original oak. The backyard is fenced and has a patio of paving stones. The unfinished basement has a cedar closet.

Listing broker Beverly D’Agostino of Century 21 Commonwealth in Winchester is holding an open house from noon to 1:30 p.m. Sunday.
