This single-family home in a city eager to host a casino has an unusual design for a raised ranch: The living room has an airy 15-foot cathedral ceiling clad in fir planks. Broad square windows allow abundant light and the room also has a two-story brick wall working fireplace. The kitchen has a retro cachet: Tan Formica cabinets, made by the cabinet-maker homeowner and original to the house, sit above new sparkly granite counters. There is a breakfast island and a comfortable eating area.

A metal spiral staircase positioned between the kitchen and living room leads to a second-floor family room. Down the hall are the three bedrooms. The master has a double-sized closet, a skylight, coffered ceiling, and small private bath with a shower. The family bath is updated. Downstairs there is a fully equipped summer kitchen in one large room with a wood burning stove. There is a full bath. A door leads to a fenced yard with patio. There is also a two-car garage. Listing broker Filippo Mastrocola of Welcome Home Properties in Lynnfield is holding an open house Sunday from noon to 2 p.m.
