  • SQUARE FOOTAGE 1,900

  • LOT SIZE 0.34 acre

  • BEDROOMS 3 BATHS 1 full, 1 half

  • PROS Apple and almond trees dot this side-street property. On it, a modified Cape, built in 1950, has a side entrance with a vaulted ceiling and recessed lights — part of the eat-in kitchen. The space offers a clean look, with white appliances, plantation shutters, and a deep sink. The dining room and living room feature recently refinished fir floors and built-in cabinetry. An addition in 2000 included a family room and, in the basement, a bonus room that offers more living space. The bathrooms have pretty, colorful basket-weave tile. One bedroom features an en suite office space, and another has two sizable closets and a hardwood floor. There’s a fenced-in aboveground pool with deck in the side yard. CONS Some sliding closet doors need readjusting.

  • SQUARE FOOTAGE 6,622

  • LOT SIZE 5.54 acres

  • BEDROOMS 8 BATHS 4 full, 2 half

  • LAST SOLD FOR $1.5 million in 1997

  • PROS The dining room with its original slate floor, tall bow window, and 15-foot-wide fireplace is the go-to room in a house full of must-sees. Constructed in 1747, this Greek Revival farmhouse offers eight fireplaces (two in the formal living room), built-ins everywhere (see the dark-paneled library), and hidden modern amenities, like a wet bar. A family room (one of two) has French doors to the bluestone patio and shares a large space with the eat-in kitchen, which has a granite island and a blue tile floor. The property features an eight-stall barn, courtyards, an apple orchard, pear trees, and a large shed with an exercise room. CONS A bathroom could use updating.
