Once a ranch, this home was remade into a center entrance Colonial with a sunny interior from its large windows and the decorating touches of abstract artist Jo-Ann Boback. The entryway opens to a formal living room with recessed lighting and fireplace with a stainless steel frame and Venetian plaster mantel. Flooring is original oak stained near-black, a counterpoint to the light colored walls. The updated kitchen has white oak cabinets, dark granite counters, and a double-deck prep island looking out to a sun-splashed eating area. Opposite is the formal dining room.
On the second floor is the master bedroom, which has double closets. The family bath has a tub with shower and pedestal sink. There is an unfinished walk-up attic. Part of the basement is finished with a carpeted play area, small office space, and a cedar closet. A two-level deck overlooks the fenced backyard, which has a patio sheltered. There is a one-car attached garage. Listing broker Doreen Yianacopolus of Anderson Treacy Real Estate in Stoneham will hold an open house Sunday from noon to 2 p.m.
