Hi...How much more added value does a 4200 sq ft home on a 2.87 acre lot vs a 1 acre? Great hill views, one mile from 280. NOT splittable. 5B/3 1/2.
Having larger usable lot makes a big difference these days. Nowadays most buyers would rather have an older house on a large lot than a newer house on a tiny lot.
