    PROS This 1925 Colonial is across the street from the ocean and a short walk to multiple beaches. Enter into the updated eat-in kitchen, with stainless appliances, stone counters, and a bar-style cutout overlooking the dining room and large living room beyond it. Both have hardwood floors, and a newer full bath is tucked into an area behind the (now decorative) dining room hutch. There’s a heated enclosed porch at the front of the house offering ocean views. Upstairs, two bedrooms and a small office or nursery nook share a full bath. Recent upgrades include the roof and heating system, and there are four off-street parking spaces.

    CONS No garage; not much yard.

    LAST SOLD FOR $707,500 in 2014

    PROS Perched on a hill, this 1930 Colonial has ocean views in several directions — but with coffered ceilings, ornately carved wood trim, and original stained glass windows, there’s plenty to marvel at inside, too. Off the dramatic entry hall (with European-style wet bath), the living room has a gas fireplace and French doors to a sunroom. The remodeled kitchen has stainless appliances (including a six-burner Wolf stove), oversized granite island, and a dining area with a built-in bench seat and sliders to the deck. Three of the four bedrooms on the second floor face the water, including the master with a new bath. The third floor holds two more bedrooms and another full bath. Outside, there’s a detached two-car garage.

    CONS One bath has pink and black tile.
