LAST SOLD FOR $407,000 in 2003

Betsy Graziano, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, 508-498-6608, betsygraziano.com

PROS Sitting on a cul-de-sac next to conservation land, this 1974 Gambrel got a major overhaul in 2003, including a low-maintenance front porch and rear deck, both quite large. A wall was removed to open the kitchen — with white cabinets and stainless appliances — to the dining room. In the renovated baths, you’ll find great vanities. In the family room, a fireplace with a wood stove. In the master, a walk-in closet and plenty of light. Another 642 square feet of living area, with three distinct study areas for kids, is in the basement. CONS A patch of floor in the foyer needs refinishing. Buyers may want to change wallpaper.

Peter Flori, Orione Realty Group, 617-212-8426

PROS A developer has returned this 1910 Gambrel from a two-family to a single-family. The roof, siding, windows, plumbing, and wiring are all new, while original details such as an arched doorway, pocket doors, and lovely staircase remain. The kitchen has cherry cabinets, stainless appliances, and granite. Baths are nicely updated. Unusual for its era, this home has a family room at the back. There’s a second-floor laundry. CONS There is a driveway, but parking is prohibited in front of the house.

LAST SOLD FOR First time on market

Ken Morrell, RE Solutions Group LLC, 978-538-0411

PROS We don’t always like to see teardowns, but, wow, this new Gambrel is great. Overlooking the Sudbury River, it has fabulous views. The home, though big, feels livable, not overwhelming. Nice touches: a second-floor laundry, mudroom with cubbies, great baths, fiber-cement siding, and the staircase is set back and angled from the handsome front door. The kitchen, with custom cabinets and Viking appliances, is wide open to the family room, with a stone fireplace flanked by built-ins. The master suite has a soaking tub, generous shower, and two walk-in closets. CONS The backyard isn’t flat.   — Vanessa Parks
