Chuck Petitti, Century 21 Commonwealth, 617-969-3200, commonmoves.com

PROS This yellow house sits at the end of a cul-de-sac, abutting a patch of conservation land, on property where there used to be a barn that went with a nearby house. The kitchen has white cabinets, tan granite counters, and stainless appliances in a wide-open floor plan. On the second floor are two bedrooms with good closets, a full bath, and laundry. The master suite, with a walk-in closet (somewhat limited by roof angles) and bath with oversize shower, occupies the third floor. There’s AC and gas heat. CONS A first-floor closet has an odd step up. The backyard could use some landscaping.

Ann-Charlotte Hogstadius, RE/Max Destiny, 617-875-5052

PROS This mod-looking building, with big square windows and a flat roof, is expected to be ready for occupancy in early spring, giving buyers the chance to pick some finishes like wall colors. Four condo units are being built here, on the site of an industrial building once used by a sculptor: two condos in front, two in back. This unit has one parking space in a heated garage. There’s a tiny finished basement. The third-floor master has access to a deck. The exterior is fiber-cement siding. CONS The heated garage is included in the square footage.

Christian Iantosca, Arborview Realty, 617-543-0501, arborviewcompanies.com

PROS There’s not much you could want in a house that you won’t find here, from the attractive low-maintenance exterior (fiber-cement siding, composite rails) to the great woodwork, high-end kitchen, and integrated sound system (with wall outlets for docking your iPod) inside. The second floor has two bedrooms with en suite baths, while the master suite, with soaking tub and steam shower, is on the top floor. A single-family home was torn down here, making room for six units (with various prices) in three buildings. This condo fronts the street. CONS There’s no garage, though there is a driveway.  — Vanessa Parks
