Reflecting Hingham’s rich heritage and tradition, this historic compound is a local landmark in the Bachelor’s Row-Pear Tree Historic District, only about half a mile from the beautiful town center and scenic harbor. A true classic, the Howard-Belding-Eldredge House was built circa 1833 by Waters Howard Wheelwright, whose original 1837 shop has been joined with a former carriage house to create the charming guest cottage also on the sweeping 2.19±-acre grounds. Authentic details of the three-story, seven-bedroom main residence feature eight fireplaces and traditional millwork. Across from the main house and workshop, the companion two-bedroom cottage is appointed with antique paneling, beams, and three fireplaces that give wonderful character to these inviting private guest/family quarters. At once grand and cozy, the Great Hall captures the charm of an English Cotswold cottage in this combined living/dining room anchored by a fieldstone fireplace below the beamed cathedral ceiling.
