"Restricting a lot. All homes should be designed in one architectural style. Area cottage depends on the size of plot: the plot of 12-15 hectare can be house of 300-500 square meters. m; 15-20 hectare - 500-800 square meters. m, 25 hectare -1 m - 800-1500 square meters. m - lists Natalia Novikova. - In some villages there are restrictions on the height of houses, for example, in the town of Florence in the Strife cottage can not be above 14 m.

No cherished fences, roofs and colorful additions architectural concept will not tolerate. "If the village is built on a single concept, the buyer has the right to make only minor changes to the project. If the land in the village is sold with contract, construction is at a uniform architectural concept and the developer intends to build up the settlement, regardless of sales, the buyer has no way to change the project - says Timur Saifutdinov, Deputy CEO of Terra Real Estate ".
