  • PROS A deviation from the usual boxy shape, the dining room in this 2001 contemporary features a bump-out and a wide, angled doorway with sightlines to the kitchen. The open-concept kitchen and family room share oak floors, decorative columns, and myriad windows. The eat-in kitchen has a five-seat island, and the family room has a gas fireplace with ceramic-tile surround. The third-floor master offers a walk-in closet and a large en suite bath. Because the property is also located in the village of Popponesset Beach, the owners can use a beach a short walk away for a $400 yearly fee. The fenced-in yard has a slate patio and a shower. CONS The countertops are nice but unremarkable.
