1 LOT + 1 LOT = 1 LOT

Two adjacent lots in Bent Tree are being offered for sale, each with an asking price of $15,000.  There are different owners for the two lots, but the listings explain that if a buyer purchases both, the two lots can be combined into a single lot covering 1.08 acres.  Once combined, the owner would just have to pay one assessment. Click here and here for the two listings.

Bent Tree Community, Inc. has allowed lot combinations for years, but 2016 saw a major change in the assessment structure for combinations.  One of the CC&R amendments passed in 2015 (and effective beginning 2016) meant that lots would be assessed the same amount, no matter how big they are.  For example, a 3 acre lot is now assessed the same amount as a ½ acre lot.  Prior to the CC&R change, most lot combinations were assessed one full assessment plus 50% of a general assessment for each additional lot in the combination.

What’s a mother to do?

These twins can forage for themselves at this point in life, but they kept trying to nurse a few days ago. The doe rejected their attempts until both fawns came running up at the same time, and she couldn’t escape. It may have been frustrating for the doe, but it was pretty comical to see. The doe kept backing up while they nursed and she was finally able to break free.  All three deer went back to eating acorns after that.  The three photos below tell the story.
