LAST SOLD FOR > $355,000 in 1998

Andrea McDonough, Bushari Group Real Estate, 617-733-1238,

PROS The soothing master bath, with gray slate tiles on the floor and walls, has an oversize spa tub looking across the yard to the reservoir, a huge shower with smooth rocks on the floor, and a pretty leaf-patterned door to the bedroom. The home is contemporary, with soaring ceilings and loft-style space upstairs. The first-floor master bedroom has a walk-in closet, lots of windows for water views, and access to the hot tub on the big deck. The living room’s stone fireplace has a pellet stove. CONS It’s time to remodel the upstairs full bath.

LAST SOLD FOR > $739,000 in 2007

Mary Collins, Century 21 Annex Realty, 617-593-7758,

PROS The graceful spa tub in the spacious master bath was made for Calgon moments; there’s also a steam shower, a double vanity, and lots of storage. Shaker cabinets, ample granite counters, and attractive lights adorn the big kitchen. There’s a second-floor laundry. Two bedrooms, with charming painted floors and great angles, are on the third floor. Outside is just as good: parking for three cars, plus a patio and fenced yard. The cedar exterior has a recent — and attractive — three-color paint job. CONS One bedroom has plenty of room for bureaus but no closet. The second full bath, while quite nice, is on the first floor.

LAST SOLD FOR > $1.1 million in 2007

Christina Perdiki-Lord, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, 781-367-4042,

PROS An arch frames the doorway into the pretty master bath with a big glass shower and, set into the corner, a double vanity with gray-green granite top. The master bedroom has a fireplace and walk-in cedar closet. Step down from the updated kitchen to the family room, where the focal point is the stone fireplace. Off that, there’s an office with direct access to the driveway and a half bath. The walk-out basement has a sink and cabinets, plus two rooms. Custom window treatments are staying. CONS Some baths have new vanities but outdated flooring and other fixtures. The patio is cement.   — Vanessa Parks
