While it might be known best as the starting point for the Boston Marathon, Hopkinton is also one of the most charming and family-friendly towns in the MetroWest area. Residents take pride in their community and have made it one of the most welcoming places to live in all of Massachusetts. This is evident not only by volunteer-organized cultural events such as the Hopkinton Polyarts Festival and summer concert series, but also by the tremendous selection of housing options in the Hopkinton real estate market. Even the largest family can easily be satisfied by many Hopkinton homes for sale, specifically the broad selection palatial single-family homes.
Hopkinton boasts a variety of residential options to choose from, with options for families, downsizers, and first-time buyers alike. Certainly, the Hopkinton real estate market is highlighted by the stately single-family homes for sale, but there are also several townhomes and condos to choose from.
At the high end of the market are sprawling Colonial houses on lush, green lots. These luxurious homes include a minimum of four bedrooms and four bathrooms on floor plans that are well over 4,000 square feet. But as visually impressive and elegant as these homes are both inside and outside, the properties surrounding them are just as spectacular. Owners of these homes generally have between one and two acres of prime land to play with. Not only is there more than enough room for a massive lawn, but you can grow your own garden, build your own pool, or create a massive deck out back to entertain guests.
While Hopkinton's high-end homes exceed $1 million, there are plenty of attractive single-family homes that fall between $400,000 and $800,000. Most of these homes are also built in the Colonial architectural style and are located on pleasant, tree-lined residential streets, with many located in subdivision-type neighborhoods that families adore. The typical Hopkinton home in the middle of the market has a floor plan of between 2,000 and 3,000 square feet and includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Hopkinton's modest selection of multi-family units can also make great homes, especially for first-time buyers. Much like the town's single-family homes, these units have mostly been built in either the late 20th century or early 21st century, meaning owners and renters will enjoy modern appliances and flooring in extremely affordable homes.

Other parks include the Berry Acres Conservation Area, Carrigan Park, and the beach on Sandy Island.
Combine these amenities with the friendly local shops and businesses, along with the town festivals mentioned above, and it's no wonder why residents of all ages have fallen in love with Hopkinton!
