  • PROS Sip wine on the 34-foot deck of this new home as you watch golfers on Indian Pond Country Club’s fairway. When the snow starts to fly and the golf bags have been put away, get toasty by the double-sided fireplace between the living and family rooms and enjoy a view preserved by six-over-one windows. The living room shares significant space with the eat-in kitchen, which features Arts and Crafts-style cabinetry and a chandeliered butler’s pantry. Multi-generational living? There are master suites and laundry rooms on the first and second floors. Space over the garage and in the walkout basement allow for expansion. CONS A wind turbine is visible at street’s end.

  • PROS This house was built in 1999 using (modified) blueprints of a design famed architect William Lawrence Bottomley drew up for former Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey in South Carolina. A barrel-ceilinged entrance in the foyer leads to the step-down lodge-like family room with radiant-heat floors, fireplace, cypress-paneled walls, and wet bar. Repair to the first-floor master (with cathedral ceiling, laundry, and marble bath) or the kitchen (with Viking range and ash floor). Privacy is paramount for the other bedrooms: Two feature en suite baths, and a pair over the garage are accessed by a separate stairwell, offering ideal guest quarters. CONS The equestrian-themed wallpaper in one bath may not appeal to some.
