Hopkinton, Massachusetts

Located 26 miles from Boston, Hopkinton, Massachusetts has a Land area of 26 square miles, but a population of just under 15,000 residents (very low density), partly because of lakes and parks:

Hopkinton State Park, which features picnic areas, hiking & biking trails, swimming beach, boat launch and sailboat, canoe, & kayak rentals from Memorial Day to Labor Day)

Whitehall Reservoir and State Park (offering a boat launch for anglers, kayaks, and canoes, hiking trails, and a secret tire- swing swimming hole)

Lake Maspenock with it's motorized boats and jet skis

EMC park, which incorporates a children's playground, ball fields and a skateboard park)

And the town Common or Green with town center location offering free concerts on Sunday nights in the summer, and local festivals such as Polyarts in September, and jam packed with media and spectators on Marathon Day in April, where the Boston Marathon begins.)

Hopkinton is attractive due to these natural recreational resources and the residential nature and small town feel. Lending to the sense of close-knit community are many locally owned and long-standing businesses such as Sauce on Main; the Hopkinton Gourmet (for cappuccinos, mochas, and lattes or our local version of Starbucks); Hopkinton Drug, Hallmark Cards & Gifts; Colella's supermarket; and Weston Nurseries.

Housing options ranging from 1-2 bedroom townhomes starting as low as $200,000 to multi-million dollar chateaux-like luxury properties on the shores of Lake Whitehall. More than anything else, the variety and size of Hopkinton's many neighborhoods offer homes in nearly all price ranges and accommodate the quality of life that Hopkinton's families desire, such as block parties and swimming at the town beach in summer, nature hikes and jackpot trick or treating in the splendid autumn; snowmobiling and skating on frozen IceHouse pond in February)

High achieving, top rated schools: Hopkinton High ranked among nations top 500 schools in the latest Newsweek Report, and Hopkinton Sophomores scored over 90% advanced & proficient in all three Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System testing categories of English, Math, & Sci/Tech.

Two nearby commuter rail stations provide service to Boston’s Back Bay and South Station, and with great access to I-495 & the Mass Pike, Hopkinton lies at a commutable distance to three major metros areas (Boston, Providence, and Worcester) as well as the technology, life sciences & financial sectors located along the 128--Route 9—I-495 corridor.

Hollis, New Hampshire Old Home Days 2008

One of the most popular traditions in Hollis, New Hampshire is Old Home Days, which is held on a weekend during September.
There is often an Old Home Day Dance the Friday night before that is very popular with students on Nichols Field. There are often carnival rides and attractions set up the night of the dance in preparation for the following day. On Old Home Day itself, there are dozens of booths and pavilions set up like traditional New England fairs, including old-fashioned games, animal demonstrations, live music, and plenty of food. Many of the pavilions are sponsored by local organizations, schools, and teams. Weather permitting, there are often hot air balloon rides and an evening "balloon glow" where the balloons are grounded and lit up from the inside. The day concludes with a fireworks show.

21 Moon Hill Road, Lexington, Massachusetts contemporary real estate for sale

Original and Very Rare “Moon Hill” home for sale. Call to inquire about this exquisite setting, tastefully maintained, 7 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath home. In 1948 seven young architects set out to build their homesteads and the ideal community. Among the rock out croppings, majestic Oak and Pine trees. The original founders of “Moon Hill” created their “Genuine Neighborhood”. Now it’s your turn to enjoy the lifestyle which emanates from the “Cooperative Spirit” created in 1948 by W. Gropius and friends.

Moon Hill is a residential community dwelling that was designed by The Architects' Collaborative (TAC) and is located in Lexington, Massachusetts.

Originally conceived in 1947 to house the young architects of TAC, Six Moon Hill has now grown to 29 housing lots, the most recent of which was completed in 2004. To build the community, TAC established a nonprofit corporation and bought 20 acres on which to build. It took the name from the six antique Moon Motor Car automobiles the previous owner had stored on the property.

The first houses were designed and built in a modernistic way. The method of design was rectangular, flat-roofed, timber-sided homes, which was typical for residences designed by TAC. The houses are situated on a sloping hill lining a small road that forms a cul-de-sac.
Six Moon Hill runs as a consensus-based, collective community in which each member family pays dues and is concerned with community issues. Among the original architects (and residents) were Benjamin C. Thompson, Norman C. Fletcher, Jean B. Fletcher, John C. Harkness, Sarah P. Harkness, Robert S. McMillan, Louis A. McMillen and Richard S. Morehouse. Other notable residents include Nobel chemist Konrad Bloch, Nobel physicist Samuel C.C. Ting, Dr. Thomas C. Chalmers (past president of the Mount Sinai Medical Center), Wallace E. Howell (New York City's first official rainmaker), Robert Newman (co-founder of Bolt Beranek and Newman) and John C. Sheehan, the first chemist to synthesize penicillin.
The most recent house is dubbed the "big dig house" as it is built from remnant construction material used in the Big Dig, Boston's recent central artery and tunnel project. Owner Paul Pedini, a vice president at the Big Dig's biggest contractor, Modern Continental envisioned the house as a conglomerate of such material as concrete roadway decking and spare rebar. Designed by Boston firm, Single Speed Design, the house is noted for being environmentally friendly and energy-efficient, and won a Metropolis award for innovative design.
