This story is from BostonGlobe.com, the only place for complete digital access to the Globe.
This house began as a barn but now is a three-story home with a third-floor master suite with original exposed beams that dramatically frame the space. The carpeted suite has a huge walk-in closet, skylights, and a bathroom with a whirlpool tub, separate shower, and double vanity sink.
On the second floor, the four other bedrooms are large with smaller closets. There is also a full family bath. The hallway has a large built-in dresser and library space with built-in bookshelves.
On the first floor, the kitchen has black granite counters, glass fronted cabinets, and stainless steel appliances including a double oven. One step down is a sunny eating area. The front parlor has a working fireplace and leads to the living room. French doors lead to the formal dining room with a chandelier and built-in cabinets. The rear of the house is one large, octagonal shaped room with an unpainted plank wood ceiling. The room overlooks the yard with a freestanding playhouse and a slate patio connected to an in-ground pool by a terraced, slate walkway. Broker Janet Pratt of Pratt Realtors in Canton is holding an open house 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday.
