On the Market: Hingham’s Ripley Homestead
347 Main Street, Hingham
Size: 4,088 square feet
One of the oldest homes in Hingham, the clapboard sided Ripley Homestead was built in 1692. Originally much smaller, the home was built over time in three sections as the Ripley family expanded. The home has much of its original character and now includes four bedrooms on .61 acres near town center in Hingham’s Historic District. Inside, many antique fireplaces are still intact, including one that originally served as the home’s cooking area. Luckily, a bright and updated kitchen is now part of the layout, and it opens to a family room. The formal living room has built-in shelving, and the master suite has a private bath and dressing area. Hardwood floors are found throughout, and the house connects to a three car garage.
