Hearthstone Hopkinton Massachusetts

Hearthstone Hopkinton MassachusettsHearthstone is a fantastic Hopkinton Massachusetts neighborhood located off of Ash Street near the center of town.

There are 27 homes located in this convenient Hopkinton neighborhood. Hearthstone Road and Carriage Hill Road are the Streets that compromise this subdivision.

Hearthstone was approved in the mid 1990's under the Hopkinton Open Space by-law (OSLPD). Under the open space by-law the lot size is reduced but in return the developer give back land that will remain undisturbed creating a green belt.

There are probably many folks that don't remember this but Carriage Hill Road was a dead end for quite a while before the Hearthstone subdivision was built. The street had only 3 homes and was a dead end. The 1st home on the street was built in the early 1990's.

Once the road was extended the subdivision took off and many homes were built in a short time frame. Most of the homes in Hearthstone were built around the year 2000.

The minimum lot size in Hearthstone is .5 acres although there are quite a few lots that approach an acre in size.

There were a few different builders that built homes in this neighborhood but the bulk of them were done by Craig Meyer of Meyer Homes Inc. Craig has an outstanding reputation for building a real quality home.

In addition to Hearthstone, Meyer Homes also constructed the homes on Fawn Ridge Road at Brick Hill Estates, a million dollar plus luxury neighborhood on the Hopkinton/Ashland line.


Hearthstone Road Hopkinton MAThe Meyer Built homes have generally captured the most money upon re-sale.

As of October 2008 the value of the homes in the neighborhood would range between around $600,000 up to in the 800's for a few of the homes.

Most of the properties would have a value between $600 - $750K.

The homes range in size from around 2900 square feet up to over 4000+ square feet. The majority of the homes are around the 3300 - 3700 square foot mark.

The terrain of the neighborhood is up and down like a few other Hopkinton subdivisions. Some of the lots have steep driveways as seen in the picture to the left.



One of the real attractive features for Hearthstone is it's close proximity to the town center. It is literally only a 1/2 mile from the Hopkinton town common.

One of the other strong suites is the fact that town sewer is available. Most of the Hopkinton's homes are serviced by septic systems other than areas around the center of town and the Lake Maspenock area.

Many buyers who relocate to the area have never had to deal with a Title V septic system. The piece of mind knowing that you don't have septic system that could fail even if it is a few decades away, can give a buyer a sense of security.

The starting line for the world famous Boston Marathon is only a short walk up the street. For many years Hopkinton has been a destination town because of the exceptional strength of Hopkinton High School and the towns excellent commuter location.

For those that like to head to Boston via the train, The MBTA is located in the adjoining towns of Southboro and Ashland. The Mass Pike is the 1st exit north on Rte 495. 

If you like living near the center of town and it's in your budget, Hearthstone would be worth a look.

Bill--Hearthstone looks like a very impressive development. I would imagine that several of the homes much be on larger than 1/2 acre lots as they look like pretty big houses.

Bill - I just might have to run in the Boston Marathon just so I can check out these homes in Hearthstone Hopkinton Massachusetts.

Posted by Julie Dumaine-Russell (RE/MAX Alliance) almost 11 years ago

hey Bill, there is a small community of tiny homes here named HEARTHSTONE. I've always loved them (for mainly students). I bet the inspiration came from Hopkington, Massachusettes and the (much bigger) beautiful homes near Ash Strret named HEARTHSTONE. This was a nice write-up, depicting the flavor of each of these neighborhoods.

Bill, you do such a great job presenting your area and properties.  I really Digg your posts!  Any one of the homes depicted here would make for a great Bill Gassett Blogging Central.

Teri there are some lots in Hearthstone that are more than a half acre. This Hopkinton MA development was planned well so you still get a sense of space between homes.

Donna - The starting line is less than a mile away:)

Mara - Thanks. I appreciate you compliments and for commenting on Hearthstone.

Susie - These posts about different neighborhoods are fun to create. Thanks for commenting on Hearthstone in Hopkinton.

Hey Bill,  I don't know this area of Hopkinton but I do remember I lived near a Hearthstone Drive in Medfield.  Thanks for the memory.  My sister lives in a house  that looks similar to these only in Rutland Ma.  It is a very nice home, entertainment friendly and a great floor plan.  I think these must be very similar. Hopefully some buyers will check it out - I remember Title V from living on the Cape and OH MY gosh that is a blessing not to have that to deal with - plus with the T nearby ... ahhh Newbury St...

This looks like a spectacular neighborhood! I love the home styles...and they are HUGE! How cool would it be to see all those runners lined up for the Boston Marathon...from your living room window? GREAT STUF!! GBU!

Posted by Elizabeth Nieves, Bilingual Raleigh - Durham North Carolina Real Estate Team (The Elizabeth Nieves Realty Group) almost 11 years ago

Elizabeth - Hearthstone is popular because of the in town location. There are some very large homes in this neighborhood. The day the Boston Marathon hits Hopkinton is crazy. It would be worth seeing it some time.

Posted by Bill Gassett, Metrowest Massachusetts Real Estate (RE/MAX Executive Realty) almost 11 years ago

That is a fine looking neighborhood and the prices look good too. We have similar styles of homes here...
