About John and Denise

Our business is real estate and finance.. We enjoy watching Red Sox games at Fenway, The Celtics and Bruins at Boston Garden and the Patriots at Foxboro Stadium. Golf is to be played as much as possible. We raised 3 kids and enjoy their company often. We both enjoy reading, games of backgammon, scrabble and travel. A scotch and cigar on the porch is always a welcome event.

John and Denise purchased this house in 1995

Why John and Denise chose South Shore Massachusetts

We moved here in 1986 because Hingham offered a beautiful, peaceful, oceanfront community, rich in history and with easy access to Boston and Logan Airport. The schools are among the best in the country. Medical facilities are unsurpassed. A plethora of colleges keeps the area population youthful and feeds the world renowned medical, technological and financial industries.

What makes this house unique

Boat rides to Boston. Picnics on the beach. Golfing at the country club. Christmas in the square. Dining out downtown or on the waterfront. Close to the marina and yachtclub.

Beautiful home with great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay this past week! The house was gorgeous and my family especially enjoyed the pool and pool table. It's an ideal location on the South Shore with good access to Boston and a reasonable drive to Cape Cod. We all had a fabulous time!

Excellent Home, we really ENJOYED our visit

  • 5 of 5

This home is very spacious! It had every single thing we needed to make our family and guests comfortable. The pool area had much more seating than we expected and made us feel like it was our own home! In addition, the Kitchen was well stocked with appropriate plastic glassware, platters and cookware. Nothing was missing from this home to complete our visit !

Amazing, secluded setting. Great for large groups.

  • 5 of 5

We recently hosted a week long family reunion here during the 4th of July week. The house easily accommodated our three families, including 6 adults, 4 teenagers, 2 pre-teens and a newborn. We also hosted a 4th of July pool party with over 60 guests, and it never felt crowded. The owners were very generous in allowing us to utilize all of their stored tables and equipment, including a volleyball net, pop-up tent and fire pits, etc. we felt like it was our own home. The house is walking distance to a city park as well as the Hingham Shipyard, with commuter boat service to Boston and the local islands. I would highly recommend a stay here.

My son's wedding

  • 5 of 5

we rented the house so my son and friends, who flew from Canada, Puerto Rico, and Georgia could enjoy some quality time together. The house was GREAT!!!! After the wedding we all returned to the house, some went into the pool, others played ping-pong or pool table, others just enjoyed listening to music and cooking some BBQ. The place is great, enough place for 12 people. Just minutes drive from everything.
