Description

The Simmons Farm consists of 2.9 Acres of Preservation Agreement restricted property with an approximately 3,400 square foot 4 bedroom two-and-a-half bath house constructed circa 1790, with an attached 18 x 45 foot carriage house.  Separately on the property stands a large hay barn constructed in 1989.  This well-loved two-story house and property is offered by the Town of Duxbury in “as-is” condition.  An RFP is available on the IsaacSimmonsHouse.com web site or from Duxbury Town Hall.  A Bidders Preview will be held on August 1st.

Originally settled by Moses Simmons in the 1600s, this was the Simmons homestead until 1934, when it was purchased by the Harrington family.  The Town took the property by eminent domain in 2020 to protect it from development and reimbursed the owner using CPC Historic Preservation funds.  The neighborhood consists of single family homes on wooded roads surrounded by cranberry bogs.  The adjacent fields are now Town conservation land.

An expanded upstairs master suite featuring a tub with a view of the fields and the 1960s kitchen update this charming home.  Historic details include four fireplaces, including the large cooking fireplace with bread oven, two unique staircases, wainscoting throughout the first floor, formal dining room and front parlor, and intact wallpaper throughout. More information and a virtual walk-through are available on the house web site.  Interested buyers can contact Duxbury Town Hall after July 11 to receive an information packet with bidding instructions.

NOTE: The PRICE of $550,000 shown below is a MINIMUM ASKING PRICE per MA procurement regulations.  The Town will not accept any offer below this price point.
