I am in the process of purchasing a piece of real estate with some dramatic qualities. More specifically, it adjoins a cliff, with an escarpment below and a dramatic view.
I would hate to waste such a great lot by putting a boring, cookie cutter house on it, and would prefer something more dramatic, more lasting (stone, perhaps), and more artistic. Something that follows the contours of the land and takes full advantage of the great view.
Problem is I have no idea how much it would cost me to hire an architect to design a house for this lot, or whether it would be economically feasible for me to do so.
Does anyone have even a rough ballpark idea of how much I might expect to pay for such a design?
