Welcome back to Hopkinton everybody as we continue our Zip Trip this morning from the lovely town green here and we’re looking on the market this morning and I’m joined by John McGeough and Anthony Lamacchia of Lamacchia Realty thanks for being with us today.

Thanks for having us, as always.

We’ve been lucky we’ve had good Fridays so far

Well the way this was going I thought we were in trouble!

It was a bit of an ugly week but today there’s a blue sky and we’re very happy to have it.

It was a little foggy

It was driving in today, but it’s a lovely day to talk a little about real estate here in Hopkinton you guys have brought along three lovely properties that you want to talk about who’s starting us off?

I’m going to: we’re going to talk about Cobbler’s Way, it’s actually a bunch of properties , it’s 9 homes on a 33 acre parcel of land it’s a new development they’ve got 3 of them built so far they are 5000 square foot, homes brick construction, 2 car garage, 5 bedrooms, 3 and a half bath, heated and cooled by Geo Thermal energy.

What is that?

You might want to ask John that I think he knows more! Basically it gets the energy from under the ground and brings it up into the house and it heats and cools the house. It’s substantially cheaper; your utility bills are much less –that’s all people care about. You get a tax break on the money you spend on it. It’s really amazing technology, and these homes all have them. They’re built by a great builder and it’s a real wonderful development, Cobbler’s Way.

And all of them custom built for the owner?

There’s going to be 9 homes and they’ve built 3 so far, there’s what, 6 left!

That’s good math!

They’re priced between 1.2 million and 1.5 million.

All right, so not cheap. But if you’re in the market for a custom home and you want to sort of make your decision on what’s in your house: your fixes, your finishes, that might be the spot for you.

This is definitely the place, real nice homes.

Ok let’s talk number two are you going to do this one for us?

Yeah, this is going back once again in time, this home was built in 1785, it’s 152 Hayden Rowe, so it’s your classic large expanded Colonial, you’ve got all the column work, it’s just a lovely classic, very period home. The nice part is it’s huge as well. Very similar to the new development, it’s 5000 square feet, it’s got 3 and a half baths, 5 bedrooms, so it’s a beautiful, beautiful home and it’s on for $799,000 and the average price point in Hopkinton is rather high, it’s over half a million dollars so both of these opportunities are great buys.

As it turns out we only have about 30 seconds can you do the last one in 30?

This one, once again, under $800,000, it’s $790,000, 13 Cedar Street Extension, about 6 years old, wonderful Colonial, under 4000 square feet, 2 car garage and an awesome fire pit. Can’t beat it.

A fire pit?

Can’t get that in the city!

No you can’t! All right you guys that is a look at some of well a little sampling of the real estate here in Hopkinton John McGeough and Anthony Lamacchia we appreciate you being here as always!

Greetings from a Hopkinton resident!
One of our favorite things about living in Hopkinton is our children’s piano teacher Haim Pickholz.  He’s a truly gifted teacher & musician.  He teaches from the Cultural Arts Alliance, as well as the Masonic Hall located adjacent to the town common.  He has taught our 11 year old daughter crazy hard classical pieces in just 3 years.  Here are photos of his most recent recital
