Dover ranch fully remade

The two dormer windows pushing above the roofline give a hint — only a hint — of how completely this ranch was rebuilt just this year. The original low ceilings and small rooms were replaced with cathedral ceilings and dormers that drench the first-floor space with natural light. Inside is arrayed along three wide plateaus: on one level is the living room, with working fireplace and 13-foot ceiling; one step up is a foyer with a half-bath; yet another step up is the dining room and kitchen.

The kitchen has granite counters, breakfast island with sink, stainless steel appliances, and a double door to a massive deck. Down the hall is the master bedroom with 12-foot ceiling and skylights, full bath with double vanity, and its own door to the deck.

Two other bedrooms vary in size. The fourth bedroom is in the finished basement, which also has a full bath, a fireplace, and good natural light. The house, on a 1-acre lot, has five garage bays under the deck. Mary Crane of Century21 Commonwealth in Needham is holding an open house Sunday from noon to 1:30 p.m.
