Sprawling American foursquare in Quincy Center

A hand-painted mural depicting the rural childhood of a former owner graces the hallway of this American Foursquare in Quincy Center. Off the hallway is a living room with a working fireplace framed with oak paneling that includes hidden cabinets. The adjacent formal dining room has a glass-fronted china cabinet and hidden cabinets. The kitchen is galley-style with updated appliances and a small breakfast area. A four-room office suite, a holdover from when the house was owned by doctors, and a half bath complete the first floor.

The four bedrooms on the second floor are spacious. There is also a full bath. The master is large and has a renovated bath with a double vanity, whirlpool tub, and separate shower. The fifth bedroom is on the third floor, still clad in original pine paneling and has two built-in single beds and a tiled bath. The finished basement has red cedar quarter log paneling and a separate workshop and half bath. The property has two garages. Sharon Maher of Maher Realty Group/Keller Williams in Westwood is holding an open house Sunday Dec. 2.
