Nestled among the picturesque coves that dot the shore of Hingham Harbor, this lovely home is situated on just over 2 acres adjacent to the pastoral landscape of World’s End and overlooking sweeping views of the harbor, its islands and the Boston skyline shimmering in the distance. With 400 feet of direct waterfront access to the harbor, swimming and boating from the property’s private tidal dock are just steps away, accessed via a private staircase from the backyard. Exploring the walking trails and natural beauty of World’s End and enjoying sunsets and stunning Boston skyline views from the expansive second-floor deck and the multi-level platform decks that step down to a grassy backyard where stretches of ledge form scenic overlooks along the harbor’s edge are just a few of the delights that await in this remarkable home. 

Designed by renowned architect Royal Barry Wills, a Massachusetts-based architect who was widely considered to be the leader of the Cape Cod Revival style, the home features the architect’s characteristic low-key elegance, infused with a sense of warmth and charm and coupled with breathtaking views from nearly every room.
