On the Market: A Radiant Haven in Hingham
Ample office space, a living room enveloped by a wall of windows, and a dreamy sunroom make up this midcentury modern single-family.
25 Rockwood Road, Hingham
Size: 1,940 square feet
All of a sudden, the home has had to become a jack of all trades: an office, restaurant, refuge, and place to entertain yourself for days on end, all rolled into one. Amazingly, this zen Hingham gem masters it all.
Let’s talk office space. On the same level as the master bedroom and its ample walk-in closet is a bright sitting room with stained pine ceilings, which transforms into a minimalist work station along one wall. A built-in desk fashions two desks out of thin air, along with a neat pair of drawers and a dozen open shelves that reach up to the ceiling. You can work from the couch, if you prefer, or when you need to take a private Zoom call, carry your laptop into the adjoining office and close the door behind you.
When you find yourself feeling peckish, the long galley kitchen is well equipped to satiate your appetite. Stainless appliances are set into the two lengths of granite-topped counters, which are capped on one end with a couple of shelves for stashing cookbooks. The blue and green tiled backsplash contributes an adorable retro element, which would pop in particular with some orange and yellow accents. If you bring the results of your home cooking into the open-concept living and dining room, you can stoke up a fire in the stone-encompassed wood-burning fireplace on one end, and take a seat at the table on the other. Thanks to a wall of windows that runs the length of the room, the entire space is awash with daylight and midcentury modern allure.
If you’re looking to get a little closer to the outdoors, you can take a step down into the sunroom where a partial glass ceiling and flower-like light fixtures call for cozy seating and as many potted plants as you can fit in the room. As the summer nears, you’ll likely be tempted to walk through the glass door to the spacious deck just outside. Enveloped by forest on three sides and filled with Rhododendrons and azaleas that are about to burst into bloom, it’s a pretty delightful place to be sequestered away.
