    Richard Giglio, Keller Williams Boston Metro, 617-861-3613, davidsonboston.com

     PROS The blue front door extends a happy welcome to this 1890 home, which is set far back between two other houses. It has good light, with lovely old six-over-six windows. Some rooms have wide pine floors. A 1980 addition out back has a family room with cathedral ceiling, wood stove, and sliders to the small fenced yard with a brick patio. The full bath upstairs has been done over, with a pedestal sink, bead board, and skylights. Brace work in two of the bedrooms is exposed, and, in the master, it’s painted bright green. CONS The kitchen doesn’t have an eat-in area, but there is a dining room.

    Kerrin Rowley, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, 781-749-4300, nemoves.com/kerrin.rowley

    PROS Located in the Glad Tidings area, this 1870 farmhouse has been nicely updated. A side entrance leads to a pretty kitchen with plenty of storage. Rooms here are distinct and intimate, which lends a certain grace. Two of the bedrooms on the second floor have surprisingly good closet space. On the third floor, you’ll find one big bedroom and a smaller room directly off it. Floors have character, the living room fireplace is unique, and a sun porch overlooks the yard. CONS With no closet, one long, narrow bedroom is more suited to an office.

    Tara Coveney, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, 617-823-9781, nemoves.com/tara.coveney

    PROS It’s special enough to be located at World’s End, and once inside, much about this 1898 former carriage house is unique and substantial. Extensively renovated, this house has an expansive foyer with built-ins, a massive fireplace, warm wood floors, an incredible sun porch, and exposed beams in the kitchen, living, and dining rooms. Green kitchen cabinetry and Carrara marble counters, while not an obvious choice, work well here. The setting is beautiful. Want more? Lights go on automatically when you open pantry, laundry, and closet doors. CONS A turret area upstairs is unfinished (but plans exist). — Vanessa Parks
