PROS Think of this single-family at the new 13-home Concord Riverwalk as the anti-McMansion. Inside, the feel is contemporary cottage, with the living and dining rooms open to each other. The kitchen has maple cabinets, quartz counters, and unusual Vermont-made lights. The master bedroom, with bath, is on the first floor at the back, with a door to the deck. The homes here are intentionally close together and share a multiuse community building and garden. CONS If you believe good fences make good neighbors, it’s not for you.

PROS This street, with lovely old homes, encircles a grassy parcel known as Crane Park. The house has a big L-shaped enclosed porch, with the side portion leading to a rear deck. There’s a fireplace in the foyer. The living room is quite large. Original details include impressive woodwork, six-panel doors, and a stained-glass window in the dining room. The third level has two bedrooms and a tiny half bath. The kitchen has newer cabinets, stainless appliances, and a big eat-in area. Lots of great paint colors. CONS The vinyl siding doesn’t do this home justice. The kitchen work area is tightly configured.

PROS A path between two houses leads back to this home, which has a surprisingly big, nicely landscaped yard. It’s across the street from Carson Beach, glimpses of which are visible. Inside, the owners took down walls to open up the first floor and added a second story. The main floor includes an updated kitchen and full bath. Upstairs, the master suite’s bath and closet are large. There’s a low-maintenance deck out front, outdoor shower in the back, and solar panels on the roof. CONS There’s no off-street parking.
