The property itself is flat and very usable, great for camping or future development. Check out the pictures to see the great potential for amazing views with some clearing of the damaged trees!


As with many other lots we acquire and sell in Forbes Park sadly, this property was affected by the Spring Fire of 2018 which is why it is listed at more than 1/2 the pre-fire sale price. Not to mention Saul Place Lot 1047 can be a great investment you can actually use for years to come. Life Long Land works closely with potential buyers to help these properties have a chance to thrive again. We are looking for buyers who want to help make a difference and better their new property and in turn better the Forbes Park community. To date we have sold 33 properties in Forbes Park over the past 3 years, we have vast knowledge of the area and pride ourselves in being a part of re-building of this wonderful community. Removal of burnt trees does not require a permit and choosing your landscape is up to you as there are no restrictions to what vegetation can be planted, make your dream-land vision come alive here!
