I currently live on a .43 acre lot with a 3 bedroom house. I'm totally surrounded by neighbors with the same sized lot. Both sides, in front and in back. Fencing all around. I have no privacy and someone is constantly having their lawn mowed or weed wacked or leaf blown and dogs are constantly barking. Some evenings one neighbor likes to party until real late with their music blasting. I have lots of shade and can't get a nice vegetable garden to grow. Even if I cut down every tree in the yard, the neighbor's trees would still cast a huge amount of shade. So, we're looking to move. We've found a house on 1.7 acres. The property is on a bumpy dirt private road. All the neighbors have at least an acre. The house is the very last on the road. On one side is about an acre of woods and the other side is several acres of woods owned by the town. There are hiking trails throughout the town owned land that lead to small ponds. It's within walking distance to the beach. It's super QUIET! The only thing I hear there are the birds singing! The house is built on an aquifier which means we're only aloud to clear 35% of the land which would be .58 acres. The house needs some work. It's livable, but we'd need another bedroom and bathroom added to the upstairs plus a larger garage or shop built for my husband's woodworking. I'd like a large vegetable garden and small orchard. Enough where I'd be able to preserve some of it. I'd also like a couple of goats, sheep, and lots of chickens of course. Just trying to figure out if this would work. Could I get all of what we need on .58? I'd love to here all your opinions and suggestions! Thank you!
