Architect Eleanor Raymond’s long career included designing the first American solar home as well as this house, with its 10-foot ceilings, walls free of crown molding, and a curving staircase evocative of the era when it was built, 1936. The main foyer leads to the rectangular living room with a fireplace and a rear wall given over to a large plate glass window surrounded by smaller rectangles of glass. The view is of a canopied terrace.

The formal dining room looks out to the backyard and a swinging door leads to an older kitchen with white cabinets, eating area, and prep island. A den completes the floor. The second-floor master is awash in natural light, has a working fireplace, a large walk-in dressing room, and private bath with soaking tub and separate shower. The children’s bedrooms have good closet space and natural light. The largest has a built-in vanity flanked by closets with mirrored doors. The family bath has a showered tub. There is a two-car attached garage and a full basement, and the lot includes a walking trail winding through mature growth of Eastern redbud, jack in the pulpit, wake robin, and trout lily. Habitat, a 93-acre Mass. Audubon wildlife sanctuary, is a neighbor.

Patti McTague of Hammond Residential Real Estate in Belmont is the listing broker.
