    David Drinkwater, Grand Gables Realty Group Inc., 781-545-3155,

    PROS This expanded Cape feels relaxed and inviting. One of two additions created a first-floor master suite, with its own deck and a big bath. There’s a skylit sitting room and loft off the suite. The kitchen has white cabinets, green granite counters, a double wall oven, and two-drawer dishwasher. Two bedrooms and a remodeled bath are on the second floor. The yard is great, with a brick walkway, pretty white fence, and decks. A beach, lighthouse, and community center are within walking distance. CONS New owners may want to update the bath off the kitchen and replace the floral carpet in the master.

    Patty Jackson, Jackson Ltd., 781-659-4411,

    PROS This house exudes classic good taste, from the landscaping to the rich (but not loud) paint colors. Entering from the oversize three-car garage, there’s a utilitarian but lovely space, with a half bath and laundry. The kitchen has a panel-covered fridge and dishwasher, a great pantry, and an island separating it from the family room. The master suite has been renovated. The finished basement, with wine cellar, office, cheerful main room, and small sitting room, even has nice lighting fixtures. The elevated location offers distant water views. CONS One bath, though fine, isn’t on par with the rest of the house.

    Loretta Harrington, William Raveis Real Estate, 781-718-6159,

    PROS Perched above rocky Egypt Beach, this handsome home has spectacular views, and all of the rooms facing the water have plenty of glass to soak it all in. The main space is wide open, with the kitchen and dining and living rooms flowing into one another. A huge stone fireplace overlooks the space. One end of the house — with a bath, bedroom, and sitting room — can be kept quite separate, making a guest or au pair suite. The kitchen has high-end appliances. Summer rentals could fetch at least $2,500 a week. CONS After recent storms, the road was partly flooded. Baths aren’t updated.  — Vanessa Parks
