PROS In North Andover, the parent town of the “Andovers,” this Colonial, built in 2000, is near the old heart. The crown molding in the dining room, dotted with metal studs, is gorgeous. The eat-in kitchen has hardwood floors, pretty Arts and Crafts-style cabinets, and a slider to an L-shaped deck. The master suite is capped with a tray ceiling and has walk-in closets and a whirlpool tub. The basement offers a fitness room/playroom and workshop. The backyard is flat, has a picket-fenced courtyard, and a view of a hill perfect for sledding. CONS The steep driveway could be unnerving in the winter.

LAST SOLD FOR First time on market

PROS True to its Royal Barry Wills design, no space was wasted in the layout of this stylish 1985 Cape. Much of the home features beautiful woodwork, including in the family room, which has built-ins, beam ceilings, and three French doors to a screen porch. The first-floor master suite offers a picture window seat and two walk-in closets. The other two bedrooms and an art studio are on the second floor. A rock-lined heated pool is the unobstrusive focal point of a backyard bursting with perennials. CONS The house smells musty.
