A farmhouse cluster is a subdivision of up to six lots, accessed by a private drive, located in the Rural or Transitional Residential Zoning Districts within the Town of Huntersville.
Farmhouse Clusters are subdivisions with unique provisions that include, but are not limited to:
A minimum project area of 10 acres.
Two farmhouse cluster developments are permitted on 20 acres, with special conditions.
At least 50% of the project area shall be designated as open space.
A minimum of 30 feet of road frontage on a public road either by fee simple ownership or exclusive easement is required.
Private drives/streets are allowed within farmhouse clusters, but they must be constructed to the standards of the Town Public Works Department. Please refer to the Town Engineering/Public Works Standards for details.
Gates are permitted for farmhouse cluster developments.
An association of all property owners shall be established for maintenance of all commonly held spaces. Where there are no common open spaces, except for a shared driveway or private street, a legally binding shared driveway and/or private street use and maintenance agreement shall be filed with the Mecklenburg County Register of Deeds Office.
