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 Hingham Family Estate, Heated Pool and Game Room.
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews

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.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a lovely stay for a week during the summer. The house is big with a lovely pool that was used every single day. Although secluded, it is only a short distance to the centre of Hingham and the Shipyard with its entertainment and easy ferry access to the centre of Boston. A great holiday and definitely a house to return to.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight enjoyed a relaxing week in this beautiful home. We had a variety of interests and plans as our group ranged from age 4 to age 60, but both the rental and Hingham nicely met our expectations. Driving and taking the train into Boston were both very easy as were day trips to Plymouth and Springfield (Six Flags Amusement Park). We made great use out of the pool, game room, and exercise equipment. The kitchen and deck were wonderful for spending family time together. We really appreciated how nice everything was in the house and how helpful the owners were. We would recommend this rental to others and hope to stay there again ourselves.

Wonderful family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

This is an exceptional home with all the comforts and luxuries expected. We had our entire family for a reunion and celebration here and everything was beyond our expectations. The kitchen is fantastic, the family room is large and inviting, and the piano is a welcoming and fun addition.Hingham is a lovely town with lots to see and some wonderful restaurants. We will definately return to Hingham and this home!
