Perspective Buyers:

Our vision for Aero Monte Vista Lots is to allow for hangars with little to no living area that has to be built at the same time as the hangar. We realize that not everyone wants to live at the hangar right away and may have need for just the hangar for quite some time.

All we are concerned with is that the area maintains the look of the rest of the airpark. A covered Porch roof on 1 or 2 sides of a hangar help in giving it more of a residential look.  Any business use desired can be done inside the hangar.  The use of Cargo Containers for storage is Allowed, we just ask that you paint them to match your outside wall colors.

I have installed a Murphy Bed inside my hangar to use when needed and to have a "Bedroom", as asked for in the covenants.  

We want to be as flexible as needed to encourage aviation uses of the park and try to accommodate all the different needs.  

Submitting a set of plans to the Town of Edgewood, showing only a hangar for now will not be a problem. You can always show "proposed future addition on one side of the hangar.

Thanks for Considering our Airpark!
