A conservation lot is an area where wildlife is protected
A conservation lot is an area where wildlife is protected. When a home backs-up onto a conservation lot not only is it a protected green space, it also adds an extra layer of privacy for you and your family. Many buyers will happily pay a premium for such a luxury.
Felicia, A conservation lot has a conservation easement on the property which is permanent and passes from owner to owner with the property. The purpose is to protect or "conserve" it;s natural beauty, usefulness, and to minimize the impact of development. Hope that helps! Jenn Smith
A conservation lot is parcel of land that has a conservation easement on the property. It restricts the use of the property to protect the environmental integrity of the land. This easement is perpetual, meaning that when the lot is sold this easement goes with it on the property. In general, you can't change the property in anyway from the state it was in when the original landowner sold certain rights to the use of the property away to a government agency or non-government conservation organization such as a water management district.
A conservation lot is undeveloped land, such as woods, wetlands, pond with woods, etc. that will not be developed and serves as a buffer from further development. When a house backs to a conservation lot, many people consider this a positive since they will not have a neighbor peering into their yards. Buyers are often willing to pay a premium for a house that abuts a conservation lot.
A conservation lot is usually a lot that abuts to property that is undeveloped, such as woods, wetlands, pond and woods, etc. and that is not going to be developed. It is a buffer from development and neighbors. Many people consider this a value added feature to property and are willing to pay a premium for a house that backs to a conservation lot. A benefit is that you won't have neighbors watching you as you sit on the back patio, or swim in the pool.
