BEDROOMS 3 BATHS 1 full

LAST SOLD FOR $295,000 in 2013

PROS This 1933 bungalow sits prim and proper within walking distance of Weymouth Landing’s shops and commuter rail station. A cozy enclosed porch leads to a good-sized living room, but the bright, updated kitchen is the real center of the home. From there, you can access the main bedroom at the front of the house, a smaller second bedroom, and a dining area with sliders to a generous back deck. Upstairs, a finished attic holds a carpeted third bedroom and sitting area. The fenced-in backyard is large and level, with a storage shed and two-car garage. CONS Choppy floor plan lacks the open, flowing layout common to most bungalows.

BEDROOMS 3 BATHS 1 full

LAST SOLD FOR $370,000 in 2015

PROS Set on a tree-lined street, this 1930 bungalow boasts charming Craftsman details, like exposed rafter tails in the eaves, as well as modern wonders such as central air. Enter into the living room, where a gas fireplace is framed by swoon-worthy built-in bookshelves and window benches. The open layout spills into the dining room and kitchen beyond — revamped with cherry cabinets, granite counters, and stainless appliances. A gleaming new bathroom with sea-glass tile accents sits between the two first-floor bedrooms. Stairs in back lead to a fenced-in yard and a partially finished basement with laundry and the third bedroom. CONS No garage or deck.
