Call it a teen suite, man cave, or maybe a fortress of solitude. Whatever the name, there’s a bedroom in this Belmont Hill Colonial that holds a surprise. In a rear corner, past the en suite bath with the green-marble counter and the sleeping area, is a wooden corkscrew stairwell leading to a loft with a built-in entertainment center — a media room retreat.

This double-decker bedroom is just one of the many highlights in this expansive home, including a pink bedroom so large (612 square feet) that it easily accommodates two queen-size beds. Four of the home’s six bedrooms, including this one, have en suite baths.

Also on the second floor, the master suite has a fireplace framed by two windows, as well as two walk-in closets, a marble bathroom with a glass shower enclosure, double vanities, and an oval tub underneath a bank of windows overlooking the backyard and Mass Audubon land.

There is plenty to see, however, on the first floor, where every room is large, the ceilings are roughly 10 feet high, recessed lights are everywhere, and crown molding is abundant.

The kitchen, with maple cabinets, connects to a breakfast area nestled in a curved bump-out with windows that look out to the backyard. Here, natural light pours in from skylights. You can also enjoy your morning coffee and a woodsy view from the sunroom/music room, which has French-door access to a patio.

The living room offers a wet bar and has walls covered with richly veined oak paneling. There is a built-in entertainment center at one end of the room, a gas fireplace at the other, and doors to the second patio. The family room also has a fireplace. This one burns wood and has a marble mantel. The highlights of the dining room are the built-in cabinetry and marble serving station.

The basement is finished, adding roughly 1,900 square feet of living space, and has an exercise room, sauna, entertainment space, a laundry room (there is also one on the second floor), a half bath, and a cedar closet.

The brick home, which sits on 0.93 acre, has an attached two-car garage.

Listing broker Mark Ohanian will hold an open house on Sunday, Jan. 31, from 1 to 3 p.m., and on Sunday, Feb. 7, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
