Hingham home features great kitchen, acreage – Boston Herald

A grand dame of Hingham Centre is looking for its next family.

The circa-1809 Federal style home at 235 Main St. is a distinctive property imbued with period charm and a host of tasteful interior updates. Between its traditional footprint and restrained updates, the home retains its warmth while offering up flashes of more contemporary styling.

Sited on an expansive 2.6 acres of land that include a two-story barn, gazebo and brick terrace, the home clocks in at an equally impressive 4,682 square feet, with five bedrooms, a home office and formal dining and living spaces ready-made for entertaining.

Historic details throughout the home add interest and drama — the new owners will love the high ceilings, extensive moulding and built-ins, but if you ask us, the updated kitchen has us swooning. Truly the heart of the home, the gourmet kitchen is a dream for any amateur chef, boasting custom cabinetry, high-end Wolf range and oversized hood, eat-in center island and a butler’s pantry, plus a sunny sitting area for lazy weekend breakfasts. And that’s when you’re not dining al fresco.

Outdoor living enthusiasts will rejoice at the many opportunities to squeeze every last bit of warm weather here — the terrace area boasts a pizza oven, grill, and fire pit. Rainy day? Head inside and enjoy a movie in the plush media room.

For more information about the home, contact Kerrin Rowley with Coldwell Banker, 781-710-8358.
