Located at the quietest end of a dead-end street, this 1950s ranch defies expectations, offering airy spaces with curved entryways between large rooms. Radiating off the wide foyer is the spacious living room, which has a fireplace with a soaring mantel made of rough-hewn stone and picture window. The dining room has a unique chandelier and a built-in china cabinet, and leads to a large office in the rear of the house. The kitchen, with the original cabinets and a dated air, is a long rectangle with windows above the sink, eating area, pantry, and a mudroom. Counter space is considerable.

The three bedrooms are clustered on the right side of the house. The master has double closets with mirrored doors, and its own private bath with a shower. The children’s bedrooms each have good closet space and natural light from two large windows. The family bath has an updated showered tub. The basement is partially finished as a family room with a full bath, and offers access to the rear deck and small sloping yard. There is a two-car garage underneath the house that needs new doors. Flooring is oak and the windows on the main floors are updated.

Debby Geheran of Century 21 Commonwealth in Wellesley is holding an open house Sunday from 12:30 to 2 p.m.
