    A porch fit for rocking chairs welcomes visitors to this updated Colonial in a neighborhood of single-family homes within walking distance of the Ashmont MBTA station. The heart of the house is the sun-splashed kitchen with long counters of white granite flecked with grey highlights, white cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and a picture window overlooking the covered deck. The formal dining room has a chandelier, a slider to the deck, and a built-in china cabinet. The comfy living room includes a cast-iron wood burning stove.


    The second-floor master has two windows and a double-sized closet. One of the two children’s bedrooms is toddler sized, and the second includes nice closet space. The single bathroom on the second floor is fully renovated and includes a showered tub and the laundry room. Flooring on two main floors is original hardwood and the ceilings are about 9 feet. The attic is now a spacious carpeted guest bedroom, with two skylights. It is reached by a stairwell in one bedroom. The house sits in the center of the corner lot. The yard includes grassy play space and a separate two-car garage. The basement is unfinished.

    Listing broker Brian Kenneally, of Kenneally-Ovesen Group Re/Max Leading Edge in Newton, is holding an open house Sunday from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
