There is no free-agent market for neighbors; who you get is who you get.

And for The Cove, a new apartment complex in Hingham, that’s a good thing as its neighbors include the 434-acre Bare Cove Park and Lynch Field, and it’s a quick walk to two shopping areas and about a mile to the MBTA’s ferry to Boston. A private boardwalk connects The Cove to the park.

The Cove has 220 units in two four-story buildings that serve as bookends for some of the amenities du jour for new luxury apartment complexes in Greater Boston: an outdoor pool, a firepit, a grilling area with a pizza oven, and a “cove” with hammocks facing a wooded area.

On the rooftop is what the developer, Alliance Residential Co., has dubbed the “Sky Lounge.” It includes a folding glass wall that opens to a deck overlooking the park. This level also offers a service-style wet bar, a water-vapor fireplace, personal conversation booths, a 10-person private dining room, and a prep kitchen.

Further attractions in the complex include a media lounge; a fitness center with bikes connected to interactive studio classes; a yoga/fitness studio; a lobby lounge with design materials that harken to the area’s shipbuilding history; a mailroom; two pet-washing stations; a mezzanine with a “History of Hingham” exhibit; and a clubroom with a television, a library, a billiard table, and a wet bar.

The flooring in this open plan is vinyl plank.

From here, the unit flows into a living area with a wide window that takes up nearly the entire wall. Some units have gas fireplaces; the model does not.

The bigger bedroom suite (170 square feet) has plush carpet, and natural light comes from one window. (Some bedrooms have
