The rear deck of this log cabin-style home has views of Charles River marshland and an intermittent ribbon of water that permits paddling to the river. Located on a private road with just a smattering of other homes, this house has an open floor plan and knotty pine paneling, large skylights, exposed post-and-beam trusses, and towering ceilings. There is a dramatic rock-faced wall, two stories tall, behind a wood burning stove. A dining area leads to the kitchen with white cabinets and appliances and long laminate counters. A separate family room has a working fireplace, ceiling fans, and access to the deck.


The master suite is located in the second-floor loft. The bedroom has a sitting area and double sized closet. There are two small Juliet balconies off the master.

Another bedroom is down on the first floor and has an adjacent full bath. The lower level includes an office and French doors to a ground level patio. There are also two workshops and a cedar closet in the partially finished lower level. Hope McDermott of Hope McDermott Real Estate in Dedham is the listing broker. John R. Ellement
