Massachusetts Real Estate


Canterbury Hopkinton Massachusetts

Canterbury Estates Hopkinton MA Canterbury is a small Hopkinton Massachusetts cul-de-sac neighborhood consisting of nine homes nestled on a nice piece of land overlooking part of Lake Maspenock. Canterbury is located off of West Elm Street just past the Circa 1700 Country Village neighborhood.

All of the homes in Canterbury were built between 1996 and 2000 with the exception of one home which was completed in 2002.

These custom homes were built by Dick Pockwinse a local Hopkinton builder. Each home Dick constructed was unique and highly customized.

The attention to detail was excellent. What you will find with all of the exteriors at Canterbury is a fine blending of clapboard, stone, and brick. Multiple roof lines add character and overall appeal to home buyers looking for an executive style home.

These Hopkinton homes range in size from 3200-4000 square feet not including finished basement space. A few of the homes at Canterbury have incredible finished lower levels that rival the above grade living space.

The interiors of these luxury homes are all appointed with magnificent kitchens. Given the fact that Dick Pockwinse was a cabinet maker by trade prior to becoming a builder gave him a leg up on what buyers demand in a custom kitchen.

Some of the other striking features of Dick's homes include the large family rooms and entry foyers which were mostly built with dramatic two story volume spaces. The other smart design feature included in most of the homes was a 1st floor study for those that do some work out of the house.

The homes for the most part are 4 bedrooms with 2.5 to 4 baths and either a two or three car garage. All of the lots at Canterbury have at least an acre and a few of them have closer to 1.5 acres.

The value of the homes as of November 2008 range between the 700's to up over a million.

One of the rare features of this subdivision is the fact that there is public sewer. Almost all of Hopkinton other than the center of town and the lake area has septic systems.

Canterbury has a fantastic commuting location as the 495 exits are only about 1.5 miles down the road off of West Main Street. The 1st exit North on 495 is the Mass Pike. Boston is only about 35 minutes away!


If you have a family one of the considerations when selecting a community is usually the quality of education the town provides. You can be confident knowing the Hopkinton's Schools are highly rated and among the best in the area!
