Development Possibilities

With Ag-1 zoning and no CC&Rs, there are numerous possibilities. You could live in the existing home while you build your dream home above, or build additional houses on the 3.67 acres to rent or sell while living in the existing home.

Graded Road

Graded road leading up to the top of the 3.67 acre parcel

A paved driveway takes you to the existing home. From there, a graded road continues up along the northern boundary of the property and takes you to the top of the 3 acre parcel. Here, you’ll find an expansive, level clearing that’s a perfect building site for a home. With some shrub and tree removal, there’s potential for ocean and coastline views.

This area is surrounded by bamboo, tropical foliage, and a large mango tree to create a feeling of privacy. You’ll also find some coffee trees interspersed throughout the upper parcel. The middle of the parcel offers more room for additional home sites, and dense foliage to create a buffer and privacy between the homes.
