The maximum angle that opens up to scenery or nature from your backyard. This is measured from no scenic view at all from your backyard to 180 degrees, indicating that the view is scenic from every angle.

Footage length

The length in feet of the street-facing side of the home’s lot can affect home value.

Backyard exposure to neighbors

The measurement of how easily neighbors can see into a home and backyard.
