PROS A classic farmhouse-style with additions over the years, this house has a good setup for family life. The living room has an open feel, and the dining room offers a decorative fireplace. A small sitting room nearby has a bay window. Behind the kitchen is a family room with doors to a flagstone patio in the partly fenced yard; beyond that, stairs ascend to a bonus room over the garage that would make a great rec room. On the second floor, three bedrooms share a bath. CONS It needs a few minor alterations. CONTACT Marsha Greenberg, Coldwell Banker, Canton, 781-823-0360,

$349,900 375 Lincoln Street Square footage 2,000

Lot size 26,000 square feet

Bedrooms 4

Baths 2 full

2009 taxes $3,346

Last sold for $59,000 in 1981

PROS This former two-family has been converted to a technical single, but the upstairs is still a separate apartment with kitchen; it would be perfect for a pair of friends or siblings to buy together, or it could be easily converted to a true single-family. The units have similar layouts, with a living room in front, a large dining room, and a spacious kitchen with breakfast nook. The downstairs has two bedrooms, while the upstairs has one. The flat yard is big and is often visited by wildlife from the abutting 3 1/2 acres of unbuildable woodland. CONS Cosmetic updates are in order.

Lot size 1.79 acres

Bedrooms 5

Baths 3 full, 1 half

2009 taxes $6,375

Last sold for $480,000 in 2001

PROS This house would work well for an extended family with its large, finished walkout basement. Enter into a traditional foyer. To the right is a living room with gas fireplace, and to the left a dining room with French doors leading to an expansive kitchen, which is open to the family room and convenient to the half bath and a two-car attached garage. Upstairs, three bedrooms share a full bath with double sinks, while the master bedroom has a huge walk-in closet and an en suite bath. CONS The finishes won’t be to everyone’s taste.
