    > PROS This home’s 1834 heritage is apparent in the great pumpkin-pine boards on the second-floor landing and the well-worn painted treads in a second staircase by the kitchen. The back door opens to a mudroom, which leads to the family room, with pristine wood floors, new exposed beams, and white walls. The master is surprisingly big. An office is on the first floor.
    > CONS There’s no garage (but there are architect’s plans for a combined garage/barn).

    > PROS An estate sale, this Gambrel is being sold “as is,” which, as it turns out, is not bad. Built in 1941, the home has good bones. There’s nice trim work and solid doors. Walls are freshly painted. The kitchen has oak cabinets and decent green Formica counters. The dining room has a corner china cabinet and low, horizontal wainscot. Vintage black and white tile in the full bath is in good shape. A new detached four-car garage has a finished space for a studio above. > CONS Parquet floors in the kitchen and half bath need to go. > CONTACT Betsy Kaden, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Weston, 617-538-7916, betsykaden.com

    > PROSA two-sided gas fireplace provides a focal point in the living room and kitchen of this split-level ranch. On the living room side, the fireplace has an unusual mantel and another wall is made up of built-in shelves and cabinets, with room for a TV. The master has its own bath. On the lower lever, the family room’s back wall has built-ins for a home office. There’s also a bath, guest room, and much storage on this level. > CONS The kitchen and full bath are due for a face lift.
