Marcy Richardson, William Raveis, 617-513-2242, marcyrichardson.raveis.com

PROS This unpretentious 1920 farmhouse has had many updates, including a new roof, windows, siding, and furnace, plus refinished floors. Charming details include bull’s-eye rosettes, an unusual and pretty newel post, and an inlaid border in the dining room floor. The amount of closet space is incredible for an old house; the bright front bedroom has three. The yard, bordered by trees, is nice and flat. The garage fits two cars, but not side by side. CONS The kitchen, while enormous, is old. The cement walkways and decking at the side entrance look a bit tired.

David Federico, Devlin-McGregor Realty, 339-236-2801

PROS This reproduction farmhouse, with an open wraparound porch common on this style of home, is still under construction. There’s a small dining room at the front of the house, but the majority of the first floor is taken up by the rooms people tend to use most: the kitchen and family room. The family room has a fireplace and slider to a deck overlooking the big, flat yard. Upstairs, the master suite is unexpectedly large, with a fireplace, two big closets, and bath with a great tile floor. CONS The woodwork and doors are fine but standard contractor grade. The first-floor laundry is on the small side.

Liz Bone, Macdonald & Wood Sotheby’s International Realty, 781-258-7111, macdonaldwoodsir.com

PROS This handsome house is down the street from Landing Road Beach, with deeded access to Kingston Bay. The living room feels open, with two double doorways flanking a nonworking fireplace with a dainty mantel. One leads to the family room, where there’s a cozy bricked corner with wood stove. The other leads to the dining room, which has a sweet little screened porch off it. The wide-plank floors are gorgeous. The master bedroom, with six windows, is quite big for a home built in 1884. There’s a back porch and outdoor shower. CONS Buyers may want to update the kitchen. There’s no garage.  — Vanessa Parks
