On the Market: A Snowy Scottish Castle Replica
55 Adin Street, Hopedale
Size: 11,595 square feet
This stone-and-brick manse tucked away in the hinterlands of Central Mass. was built as a replica of a Scottish castle in 1921. Called “the Ledges,” it was constructed on the grounds of former Gov. Eben Draper’s estate by his son. Today, the nine-bedroom chateau is for sale for almost $2.5 million—a relative bargain when you consider there are remarkably smaller condos in Back Bay asking the same price.
Inside, the place boasts a 50-foot-long great hall, a total of 14 fireplaces, coffered ceilings, and a banquet hall. For those seeking relaxation beyond the sumptuous manor, it’s surrounded by 18 acres of landscaped grounds, which include a tennis court, an in-ground pool, a gazebo, and a pond.
