Highest & Best Use

Future: Assemblage with Adjoining Parcels

The future highest & best use of the subject property would result from a rezoning to R-2* or with assemblage of adjoining properties to R-2 or R-3 if possible.

The highest & best use of the subject property could be achieved with the cooperation of either or both adjoining properties. The additional land sqft. and most importantly the additional road frontage could maximize the rezoning density and result in additional development and resale value.

Present: Residential Resale or Tear Down

At present, the highest and best use of the property is as a detached dwelling unit or a residential "tear down" property for the construction of a new "Luxury Estate Home on 1 Acre".

The future highest & best use of the subject property would result from a rezoning to R-2* or with assemblage of adjoining properties to R-2 or R-3 if possible
