With a blue Mansard roof and three arched exterior windows, this four-bedroom stucco house stands out on its lot abutting the Walpole Country Club. An estate sale, the entire house has been updated, but its 1970s format survives. Stairwells and railings are original rough finished wood, stained dark brown. The front entry presents a two-level open plan underneath an 18-foot ceiling with partially exposed beams. There is a sunken living room, which includes a brick-faced wall and a fireplace. Above there is a new kitchen with Ikea fixtures, white cabinets, and granite counters.

A metal corkscrew stairwell leads to a study overlooking the lower level. A large media room has sliders to a roof deck. The bedroom space is large with a Juliet balcony and walk-in closet. The private bath has Italian tile, a double vanity, and large shower. An original parquet stairwell connects to the first-floor hallway lined with windows. There is an inground pool. The three smaller bedrooms radiate off the hallway. Updates include a ductless electric heating/air conditioning system. There is a two-car attached garage.
