PROS Fresh off a gut remodel that included a new roof, this 1927 home balances traditional and modern style. Enter into a bright living room with brick fireplace and beamed ceiling. Directly beyond are the dining room and roomy kitchen, with quartz countertops, a double-height prep island, and an eye-catching backsplash behind the gas stove. Two sets of French doors off the living room lead to a small back deck or a side sunroom; a laundry closet, full bath, and bedroom complete the first floor. Upstairs, two bedrooms share a modern full bath, and the master suite has a bath with double vanities. Preston Beach is down the street. CONS Not much of a backyard.
