INQUIRE ABOUT THIS LISTING
31 Cross Rip Lane, Chilmark
Beautiful private 1.88 acre lot in the North Abel's Hill neighborhood, amidst rolling meadows, lush trees and old stone walls. There is an existing charming 1 bedroom cottage built in 1999. The property has a three bedroom septic that has recently passed Title V, the Chilmark Board of Health has approved the system to serve a two bedroom home with the possibility of approval for a third bedroom. This is a wonderful opportunity to realize your Chilmark dream, by either working with the existing structure or designing a new home. The Chilmark Town Building Inspector has indicated that there can be interior renovations by right, and expansion beyond 800 square feet with a Special Permit from the Zoning Board of Appeals. An Accessory Structure could also be built by right, providing it meets the setback requirements. There are wetlands on the Western edge of the property that mean that any proposed expansion outside of the Building Envelope (see rough sketch in the listing packet created by the Seller's property manager) would need to go before the Chilmark Conservation Commission. The property does not have a share in the Abel's Hill Association (AHA) nor does it have rights to usage of the Abel's Hill private tennis courts or beach access. A buyer may inquire about purchasing a share from AHA, but there is no assurance as to whether a share will be made available, or at what price. Given that the house is situated in a private housing association, the owner may be expected to contribute to the cost of maintaining the shared roadways. Please contact Broker for all showings.
