Homes in Bridgewater, Wenham with three-car garages

These properties offer a spot for your mower this spring.


  • $519,900


  • LOT SIZE 0.43 acre

  • BEDROOMS 3 BATHS 3 full

  • LAST SOLD FOR First time on market

  • PROS The three-car garage is tucked into the side of this 1998 Colonial, a big draw. The home’s interior — with its Waverly-like decor and folk-art stenciling — is reminiscent of a B & B. Off the kitchen is the family room, with cathedral ceiling, fireplace, plate rails, and — through French doors with a transom window — access to the living room. A fireplace with Delft-tile surround and hearth is the focal point of the master, and the built-in bookshelves at bedside are another reason to linger. Hot toddy? Head to the basement, where there’s a wet bar and built-in entertainment center in 1,000 feet of additional living space. CONS The stenciling is inviting but may not suit some.

  • $1.29 MILLION


  • LOT SIZE 2.40 acres

  • BEDROOMS 4 BATHS 2 full, 1 half

  • LAST SOLD FOR First time on market

  • PROS The three-car garage does not detract from the facade of this hilltop Colonial because it’s hidden around back. The panorama there — of trees, field, and water — is even more pleasing. The home, built in 1938 and expanded, abuts protected land. The kitchen is what sets this home apart. The cherry cabinets are pretty, and the built-in desk must come in handy for sorting mail, but the piece de resistance is the octagonal sitting area with cathedral bead-board ceiling and multiple windows. The home has mudroom cubbies tall enough for golf bags, myriad closets, and built-in dressers, and the wall tiles in the kitchen (fruit) and bathrooms (sea and seashell) are whimsical. CONS The garage is detached.
