This 1920 bungalow was completely remodeled in the last year. Enter to a large, open living room and dining room, with a small bedroom tucked to the left. During renovations, the owners stole space from an unwanted hallway to enlarge a second bedroom and a newly updated bathroom. Past a third bedroom is a new kitchen with custom cabinets and counters, steel appliances, and an eye-popping backsplash; at the back is a small office, plus a laundry room and mudroom that opens to a small backyard. The mostly tiled basement — included in the square footage — is a dated reminder of the old house, but offers a full bathroom. Craig Pitzi, Coldwell Banker, 617-818-7260, cpitzi@cbzhomes.com

Nestled in the side streets of Waltham’s Warrendale neighborhood is this distinctive-looking 1940 Cape. Through the front door are a mudroom and foyer, while the side entrance takes you straight into the kitchen — a modern one, with wood floors, that opens to a traditional dining room. Follow the circular layout past a half bath to a small downstairs bedroom and then a large living room with fireplace and adjacent three-season porch overlooking an ample backyard. Back in the foyer, head upstairs to two large, cheery bedrooms that share a full, updated bathroom. Thomas Stanley, RE/Max on the Charles, 617-529-4279, tomstanley@remax.net

This new-looking Colonial was once a 1950 Cape, until the owners expanded the second floor in 2015. Other updates include a new roof (with leased solar panels in the back), updated electrical systems and insulation, and a modern kitchen with breakfast bar and open dining room. Walk past a half bath on your way to the large living room, with a cozy, carpeted family room beyond. In the transformed second story, the master bedroom features two walk-in closets plus a stylish bathroom with double sinks and imported marble floors; three more bedrooms share a second full bath that’s a bit smaller, but no less luxurious. (Note: As of press time, an offer had been accepted on this property.) Liz Darby, Century 21 Commonwealth, 617-775-5663, liz.darby@commonmoves.com

BATHS 3 full, 2 half

A cheerful mudroom with an adjacent screened-in porch welcomes you into this 1895 Victorian. Past the fireplace in the foyer, the living room and dining room to the right boast bay windows with plantation shutters, while a gleaming dream kitchen anchors the back with a half bathroom and homework nook. Off the kitchen is a large, sunny family room, part of a two-story addition in 2005 that complements rather than corrupts the home’s exterior. Up the Jack-and-Jill staircase are four bedrooms, including a large master suite with double sinks in the bath, plus a laundry room and second full bathroom. The third floor holds another bedroom and full bath, while the walkout basement is partially finished with a den/playroom and half bath. (Note: As of press time, an offer had been accepted on this property.) Leslie Kaplan & Cheryll Getman, Hammond Residential, 617-851-6041, hammondre.com
