http://www.LynnHargrave.com - First settled in 1660, Hopedale is located on the Southeastern edge of Worcester county,, bordering Bellingham, Upton, Mendon and Milford. With just under 6,000 residents, it occupies the valley of the upper Mill River.
Built in 1825 this fully restored Fold Victorian estate transports you back to an age of sophisticated elegance. Originally the home of the pastor of the former Hopedale Unitarian Parish, its formal entrance historically faced the church located down a sweeping hill prior to the land being developed with other estates at the turn of the century.
A formal bridal staircase as well as a fire lit parlor served as a wedding chapel and gathering place for many of the parishioners.
You'll enjoy warm weather entertaining in the spacious backyard, with it's built in grill with granite countertops, a waterfall, fire pit, dining area and a pergola. Top it off with irrigated perennial gardens throughout the landscape and you've got the perfect recipe for delightful summertime living!
The estate has very tastefully been modernized with all the amenities sought after by today's standards.
A modern kitchen with very open floor plan was designed with brand new stainless appliances just installed, granite countertops and a first floor laundry/mudroom added to the back of the house. The original wood floors were preserved and detailed crown molding was added throughout the home. Upstairs walls were rearranged to best utilize space and a huge master walk-in closet and modern master bath with a 25 jet shower were added as well as a library.
Additional upgrades include new custom tilt in windows to match original windows, insulated siding, upgraded 200 amp. electric and a custom copper roof over the side porch. Finished with pottery barn perfect touches, it's obvious no detail was spared. There are even murals painted by a local artist bringing this home to life. You will fall in love with this home.
