The views of White Pond out nearly every window, the private dock jutting into the kettle pond, and the terraced hillside with a cookout area help explain why this house has been in the same family for 46 years. The downside, though, is that much of the house could use refreshing as the decor includes some drop ceilings and dark paneling, and the septic system has to be modernized.

But inside are reminders of its terrific pond perch. The combined living and dining space has views of the hillside leading to water’s edge, while the decks and several rooms on the lower level also look onto the pond. The master bedroom comes with a private, screened deck and has a wall of closets, a cathedral ceiling, and three triangular windows.

The lower level includes a family room, full bath, and utility room and is reached by a metal spiral staircase. An addition built in the 1980s includes a room with a pool table and screened-in deck. Outside a long, wide stairwell leads through mature trees to a cookout area and then down to a set of benches and 50 feet of waterfront that comes with property. The lot is bisected, with a two-story garage on the other half.

Listing broker Cherie Murra of Acton Real Estate Co. in Acton is holding an open house Sunday from noon to 1:30 p.m.
