Description

Welcome to the Hopewell House. This extraordinary estate, presiding over nearly 3 acres is truly a rare offering. A spacious carriage house, clay tennis court, two swimming pools – both indoor and outdoor – and garage parking for nine cars complement the spectacular home, designed in a Classic Revival aesthetic with tan Roman brick enclosed by red tile hip roofing. The main house, featuring nine bedrooms and eleven baths, boasts stunning period details including leaded glass ceilings in the sunrooms and beautiful custom millwork throughout. The carriage house has two bedrooms and two baths, ideal for guests or multi-generational living, while the sweeping, gated grounds offer mature and meticulously maintained landscaping, allowing for a private and serene setting just minutes from Boston. The entertaining possibilities are endless. The Hopewell House was designed in 1920 by famed architect George H. Sidebottom and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
