PROS A cute house with new kitchen and high-ticket updates like roof and electrical at this price? Yup. Built in 1900, this home is darling. The living room is set off from the foyer with French doors, and a built-in cupboard adorns the dining room. The kitchen has new white cabinets and, except for the range, new appliances, plus a pantry/laundry. Two of the three bedrooms are fairly small, but in the walk-up attic, there are two rooms (finished but with rough-hewn painted floors). CONS Closets are small, and the porch steps could be replaced.

PROS This is a home for a family with kids: Located near the end of a cul-de-sac, it has a partially finished basement and a big treehouse in the backyard. The kitchen, with maple cabinets, granite counters, and appliances with a mix of finishes, has a slider to the deck and is wide open to the big family room, with fireplace and vaulted ceilings. The master bedroom has a generous walk-in closet, and two other bedrooms have double closets. The windows are tall. There’s an oversize two-car garage. CONS The nearby highway is noisy. There’s a wide variety of carpet colors throughout the house.

PROS The views of the Neponset Reservoir behind this contemporary home go on forever. The majority of the rooms in the back of the house have views, but the most spectacular are from the master bedroom and a sunroom, now used for dining, off the family room. The first-floor master has a wall of angled windows, walk-in closets, a gas fireplace, and great bath. There’s a first-floor office and laundry. The basement has a rec room and bath. Storage is plentiful. CONS Though the kitchen has granite counters and stainless appliances, the dark oak cabinets are circa 1980s. Some baths are due for an update, too. — Vanessa Parks
