Granite Way

The owners were able to buy one of the last lots with water frontage on Eastman Pond. Want to guess why it was still available? It was “unbuildable”!! At least that was my assessment as I gazed down the precipice that started mere feet off of the road right-of-way. There was no space to put a house, much less a driveway and turn-around area, and there were huge ledge outcroppings and a drainage swale on one side with running water that I was afraid would be classified as a stream! Despite the misgivings that I did share (diplomatically) with the owner, they were delirious with joy about the new house that they envisioned and urged me on.
