Does anyone else have a problem with people thinking that your driveway will get them to the local real-estate listings? We have a modest five acre parcel, heavily wooded with three seasonal drainages crosscutting the length. The unpaved private road splits about 200’ east of our northeast property corner at the top of one of the draws. If you go straight, there is a paved driveway up the next hill to a new house, and the road continues to the left past the driveway but is rather small and obscure. To the left at the split is the continuation of the road circling back on itself; this is the way to our house. As you turn left the road drops quickly into the draw, and is washed out with large ruts cutting across it, if you didn’t know where to drive you would bottom out your car the ruts are so deep. Our driveway turns left off this portion of the road right at our northeast property corner; the road itself is becoming overgrown from lack of use past our driveway. As you start up our driveway we have a NO TRESPASSING sign and our address posted in plain sight on a tree right next to the driveway. Over the last year, two parcels have been up for sale on our road, so we get people driving right up our posted driveway all the time looking for these parcels. Even after it becomes evident that the road is coming to our house, they keep driving, sometimes just around the house and back out, most the time they decide we must be the people to ask for directions. The thing is, neither one of the parcels have sold the first one they took off the market after almost a year the other has been on for over six months. DW is making a new sign “PRIVATE DRIVE, NO ACCESS/EXIT”, but we don’t like signs. Shouldn’t people have sense, and courtesy without needing to be told? Yesterday was the latest, they drove up late in the afternoon, the dogs did their job and let me know someone was coming, so I was standing at the corner of the deck as they drove up. The guy said hi and got out came up and asked where the property for sale was. Now I always try to be polite, but yesterday I was tired so I was probably a little short with the guy, cause as he was leaving he was trying very hard to apologize. I don’t like being like that but the more it happens the more annoyed I get, so the next guy might not see the real me at all. Does anyone else have a problem like this? Any suggestions as to what to do, short of putting up a gate, DW has a back problem, don’t want her to have to be opening closing the gate all the time. Thanks for your input.
