The land is ten acres legally subdivided into four parcels. Subdividing was required due to county and state regulations that restrict home building and septic system designs. Subdividing is time-consuming and expensive, but the upshot is that each parcel can legally support two homes which allows for the development of a neighborhood-scale community tied together by common values and interests.

A second one bedroom septic system has been approved which allows for an additional home.

Parcels Two and Three are two acres each and are undeveloped. Each have approved four-bedroom septic designs. Parcel Four is four acres and is situated at the back of the property.  Parcel Four has forests, sunny meadows, and many possibilities as a community resource. It also has a four-bedroom septic design but could also be left undeveloped as a shared-community habitat space.
