Sitting on a tree-lined, half-acre lot, this Colonial is a steal compared to the million-dollar-plus mansions in the neighborhood. However, at 1,750-square feet, it's also smaller than some of the grander homes in the area, where the average home sells for nearly $700,000.

There's plenty of room to expand, though. And for most families, the home will suit just fine. There's a large eat-in kitchen that serves as a natural gathering space, a detached garage, a gas fireplace, hardwood floors and a laundry room.

Another bonus: It's just 10 miles to Boston by light rail or train.
