PROS Enter this 1918 bungalow through a small sunroom set up as an office. To the right is a bright, larger-than-expected living room, open to the dining room at left. Past a bedroom and updated full bath is the eat-in kitchen, with a bay window. Off the kitchen, a good-sized den with a closet is currently used as a bedroom, making the home feel larger than its legal two-bedroom status. From there, stairs lead to the finished attic, where a large bedroom has deep closets. The backyard is small but fully fenced. In the basement are a new washer/dryer and full bath, and access to one-car garage. CONS Older kitchen cabinets, no dishwasher.

The second story holds three bedrooms and a full bath, plus an office with stairs to the third floor, where two more large bedrooms share a new half bath. CONS House is under agreement.
