In 2018 there was a brush fire through these properties which in the long run will improve there value. This area was heavily over wooded which resulted in limited views and high improvement costs to clear a parcel for building. Now the parcels have been transformed to open grasslands, scattered trees, with new views that before were not evident due to heavy over forestation, The few trees still standing can be removed by local companies at a minimal cost. Regardless we have discounted this parcel at this time although in a few years these lands will prove to be more valuable than before
