    Trees and money trees all in one. Live and invest in the same spot. This 37 acre parcel is slated for future development, but in the meantime there is a private bungalow among the trees, yet right in the City, to live in or rent out for some instant return on your investment. The future development is currently being finalized and is looking like either country residential or highway commercial so far. Buyers must check with the municipality for specific details. A portion of the land is likely to be appropriated for environmental reserve so price is based upon the likely remaining development portion. Owner will consider creative purchase options. Paved road to property, gravel/dirt road access to home. More details
