building a waterfront house in AA county; lot has 6000 sqft imperivous space, do we have to stick w/original footprint or can we build a bigger house

Asked by Newhomebuyer, Anne Arundel County, MD Sun May 8, 2011

We would like to make an offer on the land this weekend, the county offices are not open - so looking for advice. The orig house is tiny - if we need to stick to that footprint (garage sized house) it may not work. Any advice is appreciated.

Suggest you go directly to Anne Arundel County Planning and Zoning. They are located on the thrid floor of the county office building on Riva Road. They have a "planner of the day" who will help you with your questions. I suggest you go there with the tax record so that they can easily reference the property. This visit is critical to your "due diligence" with respect to any offer. I would only make an offer that is contingent upon your ability to build your home of choice. You may ask for a 30 day period to clear your concerns. During this time, you should have the sole option to back out of the contract if you for any or no reason do not like the response from the county.
