Originally approved with no reserved home sites or rights to subdivide & 150 foot buffer (the garden is excluded for the life of the Gilliam’s).
Mr. Gilliam would now like to survey out ½ acres near existing home for his nephew, who will inherit the land. The surveyor is aware of this and is in the process. It would be excluded from the easement.
Approximate location of ½ acre home site (surveyed out & excluded from easement)
At the very least, we would protect the exterior character (a “fascade easement”), but many go beyond to protect the interior features, the historic setting, & specific landscape features
We are qualified to hold a preservation easement and could get feedback from the State Historic Property Office (SHPO), the National Trust for Historic Preservation (NTHP), etc. when approvals need to be granted
Yes, we have a “Grant of Conservation Easement, Preservation Agreement , and Development Rights” on Cooleemee Plantation. It specifically references it’s listing of the National Register of Historic Places & as a National Historic Landmark
This agreement may be slightly different, more protective of the historic home
