PROS A contemporary feel pervades this classic center-entrance Colonial built in 1925. The living room, with a wood-burning fireplace and beamed ceilings, is spacious, and a renovation opened the dining room to the cook's kitchen with breakfast nook. There's no master suite, but one could easily be made, either in the finished third-floor bonus room or by combining two rooms on the second floor. The pool, a few steps higher than the main yard, is very private, with a small wooded area surrounding it. CONS It's on a busy street, and the backyard needs landscape work.

PROS This vinyl-sided farmhouse with an attached two-car garage is well laid out, with a circular plan for the living room, dining room, and kitchen. The family room has cathedral ceilings, a brick-front fireplace, skylights, and a wall of windows overlooking the pool and landscaped yard. The kitchen has oak cabinets and granite countertops, and a built-in counter separates it from the dining room. There are three bedrooms and a full bath on the second floor, while the third contains the master suite. CONS The ceiling of the stairwell to the third-floor master is less than 6 feet high, and some cosmetic changes may need to be made.
