Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it is lightly rolling and set within partially wooded enclave, with access to a town maintained road with electricity on the roadway. There are several potential build sites towards the road, or you can traverse slightly uphill to catch a glimpse of the mountain views.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

If possible we would want to subdivide this property and create two equally sized parcels. The option could be to keep an owners parcel and either develop or sell the other newly created piece. Either way they could both be developed simultaneously or over time. Both parcels would receive similar treatments in regards to developing access with a driveway and clearing for a building site. Traditional utilities are available for both, however to save on overall costs one could be considered an off grid setup. Both parcels would have ample space for additional structures like a studio or ADU.
