The inside got a new kitchen and bathroom, sure — but the outside of this 1,200-square-foot, two-story house got a redo, too, including a new roof, driveway, and walkway. (A survivor of the rehab: the kitschy multicolor stone façade.)

The interior of this 1,116-square-foot peanut of a ranch is now gilded with plenty of crown molding and chair rail, while the updated grayscale kitchen is cribbed straight from the Flip or Flop playbook.

You can veg out in the new seated shower while body sprayers hose you down, if that’s your thing, in the master bath of this 3,315-square-foot row house. Another addition: a two-car garage.

Built in 1885, this 4,000-square-foot Queen Anne–style house still looks historical on the outside (see the patinated cornices and tall arched windows), but the inside has been modernized, down to the really sexy stuff like fresh plumbing and wiring.
