The competition is not exactly strenuous, but No. 20 is among the more architecturally ambitious of the Meadowview Heights crop, with its Queen Anne-style turret especially. It was constructed in 2006, with 3,058 square feet of floor area. The property has been since 1988 by a Hingham resident.

Blueberry Avenue is the cross-axis thoroughfare to Bayberry Avenue in the Meadowview Heights subdivision, a sprawling 74-lot development project initiated in 1983 by Matthew J. Costa on lands between Bradford Street Extension and Shank Painter Pond, reaching to the edge of the Cape Cod National Seashore and the crown of Blueberry Hill.

Steve Mullen wrote on 9 May 2012: This house, known in the neighborhood as “the pink house,” was built around 2005. It sat clad only in house wrap for its first 18 months. Finally, the pink vinyl siding was installed. The house is unoccupied, and unfortunately is falling victim to the weather and owner neglect. Siding flaps in the wind, and significant water damage occurred during the first 18 months. There appears to be some activity on the house lately — contractor lights can be seen in the evening, lighting up the interior of the house.
