A winding driveway, lined with a wooden fence, leads to this Tudor home resting deep in a 3-acre lot bordered by conservation land. There are apple, pear, peach, and cherry trees along with blueberry bushes. The first-floor living room has birch paneling, a fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and access to a sunny three-season porch. The formal dining room has the same paneling and a custom chandelier. Both rooms have French doors leading to an in-ground pool and the sprawling yard, which includes a fenced dog run and koi pond. The updated kitchen includes a professional quality six-burner gas stove, Corian counters, a granite prep island, and cherry cabinets. There is a half bath.

An expansion added a large family room with wood stove. The second-floor master has Australian cypress flooring, a walk-in closet, and a full bath. The two children’s bedrooms vary in size and have large closets. The family bath has a showered tub and double vanity. A breezeway connects the house to a three-car garage, which includes a one-room apartment with a Juliet balcony that provides winter views of the Scituate reservoir. Propane is used for cooking; oil for heating. Listing broker Jackie Braga of Braga Associates in Scituate is holding an open house Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m.
