  • 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.

  • LAST SOLD FOR $497,000 in 2004

  • 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.
