All you need are building plans.

Take an aerial look at this two-lot property. Together they total ~12 acres that wrap 180° around the mountain top.  The two lots are shown at the bottom of this page. This makes for an incredible large parcel for just $199,000.

The night sky is unbelievable. Watch countless satellites and falling stars.
