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.
