Thank you for your interest in the three house lots being sold by the Town of Plympton. This is a unique opportunity to build a home in a special rural setting that has easy access to shopping areas and major highways.

These wooded lots are adjacent to 160 acres of permanently protected conservation land with trails for walking and horse riding. The rear of each lot has a beautiful view of the reservoir and former bogs in the new Preserve. The sale of these lots will help the Town repay the bond that was taken out by Town Meeting in November, 2018 to secure the purchase of the Preserve. Each lot is about 1.5 acres, is deed-restricted to one single family home and has town-approved septic and well permits.

The Town is required to sell each lot through a separate Request for Proposal (RFP) process. The three separate RFP’s are available below. Each RFP includes a “suggested minimum price” for each lot. The suggested minimum for Lots 1 and 2 is $125,000 each, and for Lot 3 is $120,000. Please note that the Town encourages, and may give preference to, offers above the minimum.

Most of the RFP explains how the RFP process works, as well as the submittal requirements for your offer, which is called the “proposal package”. Section H of the RFP spells out what needs to be submitted in the proposal package and how to submit it. Providing the required information is not complicated. A sealed bid in a separate envelope, which includes all of the required information and documents described in the RFP, must be submitted for each lot. Incomplete bids will not be considered.  

For your convenience, copies of the following documents are below each RFP:

The lot plan registered at the Plymouth County Registry of Deeds

The septic and well plan approved by the Plympton Board of Health for each lot, and the associated permit letter

A sample DRAFT Purchase and Sale agreement

Please Note:

Sealed bids are due at the Plympton Town House before noon on May 11, 2020 in the Treasurer’s Office.  Proposals will be publicly opened and read aloud by the Treasurer at noon on May 11, 2020. 

You are welcome to walk the land, with the understanding that you do so at your own risk. Look for the large “3 Lots for Sale” sign on Prospect Road, near the intersection with Soule Street. The attached “marketing” plan is color-coded to match the markers around each lot. The number of each lot is posted near the street. 

If you have any questions, please submit them to conservation@plymptontown.org. The answers to all written questions will be posted on this section of the web site until April 30, 2020.  In the interest of fairness to all applicants, the Town cannot respond to verbal inquiries. 

Complete paper copies of the RFP and attachments are available in the Town Treasurer's office, Monday - Thursday 9 - 2, and Monday nights 5 - 7
