Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it comes ready to go with a well, driveway, electric utility, septic design & stone walls. There has even been clearing for both the house site & septic. There is even high speed internet & Cable TV through Xfinity available. Very buildable, affordable lot in a desirable location near a historic town, farmers markers, museums, and entertainment.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

We propose the site plan of this project incorporates the existing land improvements including driveway, well, and utility hookups. This is a significant savings in the overall ground prep development costs as well as startup time. It wouldn't be long before actual construction could begin.
