This lot is located on the Pinehurst Golf Course. Behind the lot is a ravine owned by the course. The golf course will allow residents to trim 30’ of weeds and exotic vegetation beyond the property line. The Rotonda West Homeowners Association has more information on this option. This presents 2 great possibilities. Option 1 is to leave the shrubs in place and enjoy the privacy. The golf course is on land preserved for that purpose, so there is no need to worry about any homes being built behind your home. Option 2 is to clear 30’ of weeds to open the view and enjoy the golfers. How much of the view opens will depends on the terrain. Either way, it’s a win/win. Another plus is that the backyard enjoys SW exposure to the Florida Sunshine. That provides all-day sunshine for the pool deck and garden, as well as an abundance of free, natural heat for your pool. It also provides surreal, night-time views of the golf course as it glows under the soft light of a full moon. This lot also has an advantage that could possibly lower your construction costs, insurance costs, and ultimately facilitate your ability to age in place. It’s the elevation. The county's contour maps shows this lot has elevations high enough it was previously classified as an "X-Flood". That meant this lot had elevations showing it was higher than the 500-year flood zone. FEMA has now changed the mapping system. However, what has not changed is the elevation. So it is likely the higher elevation may qualify you for flood insurance discounts. Even more important is that the elevation also has the potential for reducing your construction costs by minimizing or eliminating the need for fill or stem walls. In many cases, this can eliminate the need for steps leading up to your home. It also has the potential for minimizing or eliminating the need for stairs leading up to porches, side entries, garage-to-interiors, and pool decks. Eliminating these steps creates additional value as your home becomes more suitable for aging in place. Your builder can best advise you on how to take advantage of this.
