Once a two-family, this square Colonial in a quiet family neighborhood was stripped to the studs and reinvented as a four-bedroom single-family with blonde oak floors warmed by natural light in every room. Off the grand entry is an office, now a pastel blue, behind double French doors. On the left is the living room with gas fireplace with a white mantel flanked by large built-in book shelves. With an open floor plan, the dining area leads to the large kitchen, which has black granite counters and white cabinets, a prep island, and stainless steel appliances. Outside is a yard with patio.

On the second floor, the master is at the front of the house and has a large closet with built-in shelving and a walk-in closet with more shelving. The master bath has a cherry double vanity and a large, all-body shower with glass doors and a seat. Two other bedrooms each have two windows and large closets with built-in storage. The family bath has a double vanity and a showered tub.

The third floor hosts the family room with skylights joining four windows to pull natural light in, and the large fourth bedroom. The basement is unfinished. The house is steps from the Glover Elementary School. Jennifer Collins McKinney of Collins McKinney Real Estate in Milton is the listing broker.
