It’s almost as if in a blink of an eye our children grow up. Make the most of those precious family years at an extraordinary farmhouse at 91 Tomaquag Valley Road in Hopkinton.
Situated on 2.5 acres of woodlands with stone walls, your children could be riding horses, climbing trees, laughing on tire swings and playing hide-and-seek in no time.
There’s even a cottage with a porch on the property that could be used as a playhouse or studio to fuel their imaginations. A quick walk or bike ride and you’re at Tomaquag Valley Brook where your family could go fishing; and the Westerly beaches are about 12 minutes away by car.
Beautifully adorned with forsythia and hydrangea bushes, the acreage includes many perennial gardens.
Initially one of 3 historic homes that were part of the Daniel Lewis Farm, its build date of 1906 is etched into the large stone fireplace, the focal point of the living room. The other 2 dates are also there. Dressed in gray wooden shingles and blue shutters, this home’s open layout with a second living room on the left and sunroom on the right offers the perfect setting for your children’s friends to visit, and to celebrate birthdays, graduations, and holidays.
A back slate patio and porch lead to a former ice room (before refrigerators), which has been transformed into a delightful mudroom. Enter directly into the remodeled, eat-in kitchen with a peninsula, which fits beautifully with the rest of this historic house. White wainscoted cabinets (some with lighted glass doors), gray countertops and tiled flooring add charm to this room, while stainless-steel double-ovens, refrigerator and a Jenn-Air stovetop enhance its elegance. You’ll also love the deep, oversized sink at one end and a bar sink at the other end of the kitchen next to the wine/beer refrigerator. A butler’s pantry provides additional storage space with cabinetry that stretches to the ceiling.
The adjacent formal dining room is quite inviting with its dramatic wedgewood-blue-colored walls and built-ins designed to hold vinyl-record albums, musical instruments, and books. A charming half-bath with a blue-and-white theme is conveniently located near the kitchen.
This wonderfully-maintained, 3,396-square-foot home offers the best of both worlds: major electrical/heating renovations and masterful workmanship with crown molding, 9-foot ceilings, huge windows, and original hardwood floors on the first and second levels. Plus, it has an abundance of closet space and built-ins, as well as nooks and crannies everywhere. There’s even a hidden staircase and a deep closet with a window - perfect for children’s games.
Also, surrounded by woodlands, there is no need for curtains. So you can enjoy nature through every window.
A grand staircase brings you to a large landing on the second level with space for bureaus, bookcases, trunks, and seating. This floor offers 3 large bedrooms with generous closets - any of which could serve as the master bedroom. This level also features a full bath and a sewing room with a washer, dryer, and closet.
Ascend another set of stairs to the third floor en suite. Make this your master bedroom and unwind while deep-soaking in this private bath’s claw-foot tub. Or fulfill every teenager’s dream for privacy.
Another huge portion of the attic offers storage space, as does the cellar.
Bask in the privacy of this 3,396-square-foot home at 91 Tomaquag Valley Road in Hopkinton, while still being close to beaches, restaurants, shopping, schools, Route 1 and Interstate-95. Built with large granite posts in 1906 on 2.5 acres of land, this 4-bedroom, 2.5 bath historic farmhouse features 200-amp electrical service, an exterior house generator, well, and insulated ceilings, walls, and floors. Fueled with oil, this home also provides a 4-zoned, forced hot water baseboard heating system, Carlin oil burner, and Peerless cast-iron boiler. It also has a new water tank and septic system.
Zoned for horses, simply build a barn and have fun riding on your own private property.
Enjoy breakfast and the morning sun on the back porch and making memories on the front porch with the setting sun.
After 38 years of raising a family in this home with much joy and laughter, the owners are preparing to leave to be closer to their children and grandchildren. Now it’s your turn to have fun and make your own family memories.
