Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty Announces the Second Highest Vacant Land Sale on Record in Portsmouth, Future Land Trust Conservation Easement

Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased to announce the sale of 0 Paquins Lane, Portsmouth for $3,100,000. The sellers were represented by Holly Prentice and the buyers were represented by The Soby Fox Team, all Sales Associates of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty.

According to data from the Multiple Listing Service, this marks the highest vacant land sale since 2021 when Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty had the top sale. This is the 2nd highest vacant land sale on record in Portsmouth.

Located on over 24 acres, this pastoral land has views across the west passage of Narragansett Bay and beyond. Used as a family farm since 1964, the new buyers and Aquidneck Land Trust hope to work together to protect the land in perpetuity and keep it in farming via a conservation easement. The buyers and the land trust hope a deal can be finalized later in the summer.

Aquidneck Land Trust is the oldest accredited land trust in Rhode Island. Since 1990, it has conserved more than 99 properties covering more than 2,815 acres of land on Aquidneck Island, or over 11.5% of the Island’s total acreage.

“This piece of Portsmouth is such an idyllic spot,” says Holly Prentice. “I am pleased that it will remain undeveloped to maintain its natural beauty.”

“I am overjoyed to assist my client in the purchase of this beautiful land,” says Bridgette Soby. “Its beauty will be left for many to enjoy for years to come.”
