This painted lady in Dorchester’s Clam Point neighborhood has undergone a faithful restoration. The formal dining room has a bank of large windows and an embossed ceiling that suggests tin. The fireplace is carved oak. In the main entry and the turret — known locally as the witch’s hat — floors and wainscoting are original oak under high ceilings. Major rooms have chandeliers. The updated kitchen has a six-burner stove, stainless appliances, cherry cabinets, double sink, and a prep island with sink. Adjacent there is a bath with a claw-foot tub and shower.

The second-floor master in the turret is large with a fireplace and closets with built-in cabinets. The two bedrooms are large and have good closet space. The bath has a double vanity, a claw-foot tub, and a separate shower. Adjacent there is a laundry room with a sink and folding tables. The third floor is a two-bedroom au pair/in-law suite with full, but dated, kitchen and bath. There are decks off each floor. Listing broker Pat Tierney of Tierney Realty Group in Hyde Park is holding an open house from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday.
