Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it offers 20 acres of mountain and wooded privacy on an established, privately maintained dirt road. The lot is both hilly and gentle, with a small stream tucked away towards the bac, and a system of old timber trails throughout. There is electric available at the road.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This project would use the existing opening near the road as an access point. A driveway would need to be installed allowing access to the build site. There is a partial opening that could be used for the build site, but we would want to gently move further into the woods to establish a site that is totally surrounded by trees. A separate trail could be established from the main dwelling to a smaller dwelling towards the rear of the property. This would be the ideal location for an adu or off-grid cabin setup.
