2403 Western Park Lane - Hillsborough, NC 27278
Exceptionally beautiful building site set within an established small neighborhood with paved private cul-de-sac road, no thru-traffic! And just the right size too, plenty of room for privacy and your structures, with friendly neighbors through the woods.
Lot offers the rare charm of a former home site from long ago amid a quite peaceful setting. Features include mature, towering hardwood trees and a huge Southern Magnolia, creeping cedar, ferns & wild flowers. Peonies & daffodils are among the plantings surrounding the old home site.
Lot is generally level with a gentle slope to a pretty little creek, which meanders quietly near the back property line. The creek offers a lovely secluded spot amid nature. This is an interior lot so no worries about what could come in behind you; a lovely home is already built and set back from this property.
Located in Western Park, a quiet relaxed neighborhood where your chickens, horses, goats and clotheslines are welcome! Approximately 20 homes populate the neighborhood, ranging in variety from the $200,000's to the $690,000's. Close to famed Fiesta Grill and just minutes to Carrboro Plaza Shopping Center with restaurants, grocery store, veterinarian and more, convenient to downtown Chapel Hill and to historic Hillsborough.
Driveway is already cut in, with some old stone detail remaining. More stones, some gleaming white, were previously gathered and are available for your use.
The small home cannot be salvaged, and once removed there will already be a mature, cleared site for your new home. Unlike a typical building lot that has never had a home, this lot has character and an "old home place" feel which takes decades to establish.
There is a high-yield well on site which seller says was drilled in 1977 (no County records are available) and which is believed to have the capacity to be functional with servicing, a new pump, etc. thereby saving the cost of drilling a new well! A new septic will be needed for the new house.
Minimal Restrictions protect your investment without limiting your life style. Mobile homes, and activities which are a nuisance and annoy others, are prohibited; home owners are required to maintain their property. However very few specific restrictions exist. Do you want a mini farm? Do you operate a business for which you need parking or storage space for your vehicles? Are you an artist or teacher who has people come to your home? Zoning and Orange County ordinances of course apply. As with any lot purchase, Buyer is advised to have their attorney review Orange County zoning and the Restrictive Covenants for compliance with their intended use.
Nearby Fiesta Grill is independently owned and operated by friendly people who care. This restaurant is the recipient of numerous awards, is affordable, and delicious! http://fiestagrill.us/
