In Dorchester’s Ashmont neighborhood is The Carruth, a five-story condominium that is literally just steps away from the MBTA’s Ashmont Red Line stop and bus station.

The first floor is given over to commercial space, including a coffee shop, restaurant, and office space. This fifth-floor unit opens onto the dining area. A galley kitchen sports high-end appliances, and an electric cooktop stove with prepping area on either side of polished black stone. Cabinets are a light blond veneer.

The master bedroom has large windows and its own thermostat. The second bedroom has sliding doors that open onto a Juliet balcony.

The bathroom includes a soaking tub with light brown tiles. Sandwiched between the two bedrooms is the living room, which draws large amounts of natural light from windows that nearly fill the exterior wall. The unit has its own parking space in the well-lighted basement garage. The entire building is environmentally friendly, including solar panels. Larry Gettings of The Real Estate Group in Dorchester is the listing broker.

The Carruth will have an open house Sunday from noon to 2 p.m.
