PROS At the end of a long, storybook driveway, this 1898 carriage house near Phillips Academy was converted to a single-family home in the 1950s. Off the main entry hall, the living and dining rooms both feature beamed ceilings and enormous fireplaces. Off the dining room is the kitchen and a screened porch overlooking the large lawn, deck, and in-ground pool. The rest of the first floor is a midcentury melange of bedrooms and older baths, including a potential guest suite with rear entry. The second floor is mostly unfinished, save for a full bath and den, but holds potential for grandeur with towering cathedral ceilings, lattice windows, and original rustic features like huge barn doors.
CONS Needs work; sold in as-is condition.

PROS This 1935 Tudor Colonial is in the charming Lawrence Estates neighborhood. An entry mudroom opens to a foyer that foreshadows the rich hardwood floors and ornate details found throughout the home. At left is a living room with fireplace and adjacent sunroom. At right is the formal dining room with built-ins and paneled walls. The kitchen is a stunner with light granite counters, stainless appliances, and an island. A powder room is tucked into the former pantry, while a cute, clever barn door leads to the basement playroom and laundry. Upstairs, three bedrooms share an updated full bath with a door to the master. Another bedroom and an office comprise the third floor. There’s a deck off the kitchen, a level yard, and a two-car garage.
CONS Shared master bath.
