PLANNING IT - THE LOT

The Lot

lot plot plan small

 


Our lot is number 017.  It is 150 feet wide by almost 900 feet deep--about 3 acres in total.  The lot is on the north side of an east-west route.  The front part of the lot, the white area before the first line in the plot plan is an open area as shown below before building commenced.

Our house is about 150 feet from the road, somewhat in the center of the open area pictured below.

At the first line is where the lot begins to slope downhill quite rapidly but goes down only about 20 feet.  Below is a path that shows the downward slope.  The woods begin there and go all the way to the back of our lot.  About 600 feet back from the street is a small creek--about 3 feet wide in the summer and up to 10 feet wide temporarily during heavy rains or melting snow.

  It is a beautiful and interesting lot with lots of variation.
