This property is surrounded by 50% of road frontage which is great for housing development since the amount of homes that can be built on a property is determined by road frontage.

(by pick ax/hand) It took two years of work which is still continuing. There are tons of stones dug up and placed in plies ready for use and many tons more awaiting to be removed from the other 13 1/4 acres. The land has great soil for farming just about anything.
