The Land

We purchased a 17-acre parcel of land located in Boston Township, about 2 miles southwest of Saranac and a 30-minute drive east of Grand Rapids. The lot is mostly wooded, with a south-facing slope running east-west through the middle. Here's an aerial view showing the approximate dimensions in feet (north is at the top and Darby Road is on the west edge):

The front part is an old field that is slowly being overgrown with young oaks and cherries. Here's a view looking east toward the woods from the two-track leading in:

Many of the larger trees have been cut for lumber so there are some likely building sites already mostly cleared, and the woods is fairly bright and airy:

Some nice large trees remain, such as this great oak that was too crooked to cut for lumber:
