Home constructed by Pilgrim in Massachusetts mentioned to be “oldest dwelling in the marketplace in America”

PLYMPTON – There’s a home for sale in Plympton, Massachusetts unlike any other in the country.

“THE oldest home on the market in America right now is this Plympton MA, also known as “The Stephen Bryant house” which was built in 1669,” the social media account “Zillow Gone Wild” wrote in an X post Wednesday that has gone viral.

Real estate agent Jen Macdonald says records show the 125 Country Road home is indeed the oldest house currently listed.

“It is a one of a kind and truly rare home,” she told WBZ-TV.

MacDonald said Plympton was part of Plymouth back when Bryant, a Pilgrim, built the house more than 350 years ago. The current homeowners have restored the property and tried to maintain its colonial roots, she said.

The “rare first period timber framed house” sits on two acres lined with rock walls. It has three bedrooms, two baths and a detached one-car garage.
