3600 N. Trail Circle, Boise 

Two white globes dangle from the low-sloped roof's edge, illuminating the front walkway in retro fashion and gently hinting at the modern update this 47-year-old ranch home received-recently.

American walnut flooring flows from the front entrance into a living room with a low-angled ceiling, where a wall of plate-glass windows is shaped to follow the roof's gentle upward peak. Centered below the peak is a wide, stacked-stone fireplace stretching upward to form the room's focal point.

The open, European-influenced kitchen is outfitted with sleek cabinetry and customized appliances, all finished in the same ivory hue. Polished black granite countertops and a backsplash of oversized Italian tile visually cut a thick horizontal slice through the room's classy, off-white palette. The pair of white globe pendants hanging above the room's center work island echo the light fixtures above the front walkway.

In the expanded master bedroom, one entire wall is upholstered with white linen while another is painted with Ralph Lauren's suede paint in a soothing taupe tone. The effect is womb-like.

The master suite, the main living areas and a bedroom are arranged at ground level. A family room and junior suite are located in the basement.

Pros: Unassuming brick facade hides a stylishly modernized interior with more features than I have words for.

Cons: Hallway laundry nook instead of laundry room.

Open house: Saturday, Dec. 19, 2-4 p.m.
