25 Old Plain St., Marshfield
Style: Dutch Colonial
Square feet: 3,076
The windows are large and wide, the walls are crowned with dentil moldings, and built-ins are everywhere in this gracefully updated Dutch Colonial that has a wraparound mahogany deck. The foyer opens to a formal living room, with a gas fireplace and bay windows. A pocket doorway connects to the unusual-shaped dining room that has a built-in china cabinet with a glass door, and French doors that lead to the deck. The kitchen is fully updated with granite counters, birch cabinets, granite slab prep island, and stainless steel appliances. There is a half-bath. But for the oak in the kitchen and foyer, flooring throughout is original maple, stained a light blond.
The second-floor master is spacious with a large closet and a window seat flanked by shelving. The one full bath has a tub with a shower. The third floor has another bedroom converted from attic space, with ample storage and a built-in desk. A basement office looks out to backyard through above-ground windows.
The house sits at the front of a 1.6 acre lot that includes mature copper beech and white pine trees, and a large out-building that ends at the North River.
Listing broker Elaine Lefever of Success! Real Estate in Marshfield is holding an open house from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday.
