Hills Farm Estate has long been one of the most sought after subdivisions in Shrewsbury, MA. It was started in the late 1980’s on the site of the old Ed Hills mansion, on Route 20. The original plans called for a host of Claud Miguel inspired contemporary homes, a few of which were constructed on Cherry Hill Rd. When the market turned, however, things came screeching to a halt, and the builder, Joe Farrell, found that those plans were far more complex to build than the masses were willing to pay for. Going back to square one, they shut down the subdivision for a bit, and redesigned the plans to be more affordable to construct, albeit a bit less unique in their presentation that those wild contemporaries would have been.
The quality was always excellent, and the fact that the homes were small, actually became an asset, as it was one of the only places in the region where you could get an affordable, newer home, again largely just due to size.
Over the years since then, Hills Farm Estate in Shrewsbury went through at least 8 different building phases, before finishing up with the homes on Deer Run and Thistle Hill. Towards the end of the HIlls Farm development, the homes began to grow a bit larger, getting away from the 1500sf range, and moving up to plans that were well over 2000sf. Of course, as with many developments, over time people put on some amazing additions to their property, including finishing basements, adding rooms over the garage, and even putting substantial additions off the back of the house.
Among the many highlights that Hills Farm has to offer potential Buyers, is a close-knit community that has within it’s boundaries a playground, a fully stocked pond, and even a baseball field. One thing that very few people know about though, is a hidden spot within the development, much of which is on private property, that has the most amazing sculpture gardens you’ve ever seen. You’ll probably have to move there, to be able to find out where it is, but I’ve been there many times and it’s a hidden gem.
