This Property, if occupied, shall not be used for other than private, single family residential purposes. No more than one dwelling may be constructed on any parcel. No commercial or business activities are allowed that require additional parking or signage larger than 2 square feet in area. We support and promote working at home and cottage industry. What we want to avoid is billboards and businesses so large they disturb day-to-day life.
All homes constructed on the Property shall be complete on their exterior within 180 days from the date construction above the foundation has begun. Accepted homes shall be one of three types:
On-site construction of not less than 600 square feet in living area permanently attached to an adequate concrete foundation.
A new modular home of not less than 600 square feet in living area permanently attached to an adequate concrete foundation.
A new mobile home of not less than 600 square feet in living area permanently attached to an adequate concrete foundation. An adequate concrete foundation shall be one consisting of poured concrete or mortared concrete block placed in any combination of beams, piers, pilings and/or footings which supports the dwelling sufficiently that no settling greater than one inch in forty lineal feet shall occur. 600 square feet is about as small as houses get. Typically, it would be about the size of a two-car garage.
Camping for more than thirty days in a twelve-month period is not permitted. We invite and encourage you to camp on your parcel. We use this restriction because some people will try to circumvent (B) by saying they’re “just camping".
No construction, other than fencing, shall take place within 10 feet of a parcel boundary or within 75 feet of the centerline of the access road easements. Buildings placed closer can cause situations that interfere with road maintenance and utility transmission.
No parcel of the Property as the same shall appear on the official plat of Jones Point Estates as recorded at the Marion County Recorder’s Office, Yellville, Arkansas, may be further sub-divided. Jones Point Estates will always consist only of the 17 parcels and will never have any more households than that.
Waste materials must be kept in closed containers at all times. Parcels must be kept free of refuse, debris, and rubbish. No derelict vehicles may be kept on any parcel unless kept in an enclosed garage. Derelict vehicles are defined as those which EITHER do not run, or are not licensed. Piles of junk are not only unsightly, but tend to spread to adjoining vacant parcels. Dead cars and junk make it harder for us to sell adjacent properties, or for you to sell yours.
Any animals kept on this property shall be maintained in such a manner that they do not present a nuisance to owners of neighboring parcels. Kennels and feedlots are not permitted. This probably means that if you want to keep pigs in the most common fashion, you need a parcel of at least 5 acres with a back corner located away from anyone else’s home. Lots of barking dogs may also cause you problems depending on the size of your parcel and how you locate your facilities. We welcome and encourage backyard farming.
All wastewater treatment facilities shall be constructed in accordance with the engineering report provided by Rose’s Land Survey, Mountain Home, Arkansas, and with Arkansas State and Marion County laws. It will be the land-owner’s responsibility to assure that such facilities receive proper maintenance as required, and that effluent shall be contained on the individual parcel of origination and handled in such a manner that there will be no violation of the law. We have already paid for soil engineering, so you don’t have to.
