Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because the locally unique history of a covered bridge with a waterfall creates a truly charming entrance experience to your private waterfront property. The 8 acre lake is actually private to the lot, which in itself is pretty spectacular and a rare find.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

The building site for this parcel would be nestled within the Hemlock trees along the water's edge. This location offers an excellent vantage point of the lake and the covered bridge. In addition, the building sites proximity to the road would assist with the ease of construction and save on overall development costs. First a driveway would need to be established from the country road. A half circle drive would preserve existing landscape while offering ample space for use. A well would need to be established and a septic installed. Electric and internet are available roadside and could be brought onto the property underground during the early stages of development. A 2 bedroom + loft HUTS standard would be the perfect choice for a primary residence or a second home getaway on this property. We could design this project so either the living space or the sleeping space are orientated for lake views... or both!
