What are your goals for your project?

First, I would like to know what interval the big contour lines on your map represent. It doesn't seem very slopey... 10'?
How big is the creek next to the field, does it run year round, and how rocky and deep is its bed? Can you tell how big the worst floods in it have been?
Is the red line a path or trail from the house to the field, or a proposed road?
Do the neighbors, at least one of whom look to be landlocked, have a legal right of way along their common edge with your upper tongue of woods, or is it all informal?
Is the road near the big creek at the bottom of your land good for access? Is that creek too big to easily bridge, or too regulated to do it without hassle?
Do your far future plans include using the existing house for something, or might you want to separate it and concentrate on fresh development?
You have a nice looking field, and it would be somewhat of a waste to use it for house building when you have a lot of scrub woodland next to it.
