> PROS This home’s 1834 heritage is apparent in the great pumpkin-pine boards on the second-floor landing and the well-worn painted treads in a second staircase by the kitchen. The back door opens to a mudroom, which leads to the family room, with pristine wood floors, new exposed beams, and white walls. The master is surprisingly big. An office is on the first floor.
> CONS There’s no garage (but there are architect’s plans for a combined garage/barn).

Walls are freshly painted. The kitchen has oak cabinets and decent green Formica counters. The dining room has a corner china cabinet and low, horizontal wainscot. Vintage black and white tile in the full bath is in good shape. A new detached four-car garage has a finished space for a studio above. > CONS Parquet floors in the kitchen and half bath need to go. > CONTACT Betsy Kaden, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Weston, 617-538-7916, betsykaden.com
