Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it is located in the Columbia Land Conservancy, so most of the land will remain forever wild. Featuring far-reaching views and a private setting within a vibrant location, this is a rare find!

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This project would have to conform to some of the forever wild covenants but the hard work has major payoffs. This project would begin with picking a path to establish the driveway. Clearing and grading would be done from this point all the way to the build site. The build site would also require some selective clearing. There is ample space here to build for a single family home with garage, studio space or accessory dwelling unit.
