With a side-by-side refrigerator the size of Tuukka Rask and two granite-topped prep islands, the kitchen in this renovated Colonial was designed for cooking for large family gatherings. Formed into a long rectangle, the kitchen has European cabinets above granite counters, two dishwashers, and a large gas stove with a grill. The dining room has one wall with mirrors, a chandelier, and a built-in china cabinet. The family room has bay windows and a working fireplace.

The second-floor master is large, has a nook for a desk, and door to a small deck with water views. There is a separate walk-in closet with sitting area and laundry room. The family bath is tan marble with a whirlpool tub and shower. The two children’s bedrooms are good sized. The third floor, which has two bedrooms and bath, is covered wall and ceiling with Nantucket beadboard with a beach-weathered appearance. The driveway ends at a two-car garage. A brief walk leads to Short Beach. Listing broker Caroline Ligotti of Otis and Ahern will hold an open house Sunday from 1 to 2 p.m.
