The entry to this three-story home in the Bellevue Hill neighborhood has wood flooring that alternates between blonde oak and dark brown mahogany, a design touch echoed in the first-floor living spaces. The formal living room has 9-foot ceilings and windows everywhere. The dining room has a chandelier, fireplace, and bay windows. The kitchen has an updated cooking area with oak cabinets and a prep island with granite counter. The butler’s pantry has a long counter, full sink, cabinets, and a bank of windows. The mudroom now serves as the laundry, and has a half-bath.

The second floor has a spacious office and a full, showered bath with wainscoting. The master bedroom has oak floors, a walk-in closet, parquet flooring, and a second, smaller closet. The second bedroom comfortably fits two twin beds and has a deep closet.

Separated by the stairwell and a built-in book shelf, the two bedrooms on the third floor are good sized, with one window each, a closet, and ceilings shaped by the exterior roof. The lot has a U-shaped, flat backyard that includes a patio grill area. There are two off-street parking spaces. There is central air conditioning.

Listing broker is Diane Capodilupo of RE/MAX Achievers in West Roxbury.
