  • PROS Much of the original detail in this 1920 Colonial has been retained and maintained, including the oak floors, newel posts and balusters, and five-panel doors. The family room has a wood stove and two sets of French doors — one to the living room, the other to the dining room, which has a built-in china cabinet and French doors to a brick patio. Windows throughout the home are large, with muntins on the top only, affording an uninhibited view of the perennial-lined backyard and the farmer’s porch. There’s a window seat on the landing, a Murphy bed and built-ins in one bedroom, and a remodeled bath with a ceramic tile floor and shower surround with a glass-tile inlay. The detached garage has two bays. CONS The kitchen needs updating.

  • LAST SOLD FOR $217,000 in April

  • PROS This corner-lot Cape, built in 1960, went from being a panoply of paneling to a bright space with an open-concept design. Just about everything is new, including the heating, electrical, windows, air conditioning, and oak hardwood floors. The kitchen has new cabinets, granite counters, stainless appliances, recessed lighting, and a floor of large ceramic tiles. A family room offers a fireplace flanked by pine built-ins and a bay window that mirrors the one in the first-floor bedroom. Upstairs, the full bath has elegant black ceramic tile and a pedestal sink. The finished basement adds 798 square feet of living space, including an area with potential for a fifth bedroom. CONS The street in front of the home is busy.
