From the outside, this home appears to be a modern suburban Dutch Gambrel with attached two-car garage, but the interior bespeaks an earlier time with its post-and-beam construction. The rough-hewn beams are stained dark brown, a dramatic counterpoint to the textured white plaster ceilings. Underneath an airy ceiling, the kitchen features cherry cabinets and granite countertops. A six-sided island with electric cooktop looks toward the dining area with a fireplace framed by exposed brick mantel and doors leading to a multilevel deck.

Around the corner, the family room has its own fireplace and is a large rectangle that ends in a half-moon bank of windows overlooking the backyard. There is a first-floor office.

The post-and-beam design continues to the second floor, including the master which has a ceiling defined by the Gambrel roofline. The master has double closets and a private spacious deck overlooking the backyard. The two other bedrooms are of different sizes.

The full bath on the second floor has a tub with a shower, and a heated floor. The partially finished basement has wainscoting, recessed lighting, and carpet. The house is on a 1.26-acre lot a short distance from the Blue Hills Ski Area. Audrey Blanchard of Century 21 C & S Properties in Stoughton is the listing broker.
