PROS Customized cedar shingles and original details — including leaded stained-glass windows, columns in the foyer, and intricate molding on the fireplace mantels — make this 1920 Queen Anne Victorian stand out. Both the living room and the dining room, which are separated by pocket doors, have a fireplace. There are colorful ceramic tile floors in the kitchen and second-floor bathroom. The master has a large walk-in closet. The fourth bedroom is on the third floor and comes with its own full bath and a walk-in closet. An additional 200 square feet of living space in the basement features a fifth bedroom with a full bath. The roof and heating system have been replaced. CONS The cracked walkway and some other aesthetic elements need attention.

PROS The mansard roof isn’t the only high point of this 1890 Victorian. A 2010 addition expanded the kitchen, creating an open-concept space adjacent to the family room and offering an eat-in area with window seat. The kitchen features French country-style cabinetry, honed granite, stainless appliances (including a Wolf stove), a farmer’s sink, and a large island. The home has a mix of wood floors throughout and a laundry area on each of two floors. The master, part of the addition, offers dormer windows and an en suite bath. The other bedrooms have 10-foot ceilings with dormers. A second-floor deck overlooks the expansive yard. CONS A side-entry screen door doesn’t close properly.
