I have not seen anything too restrictive ... the most common is setbacks on corner lots.

I have seen restrictions on who can buy in a subdivision. These restrictions are no longer enforceable. It is an attention grabber when I come across it. I have to read it a couple of times to be sure I am seeing what I am seeing.

Not a deed restriction, but special property rights.

I bought some land in the San Luis Valley, southern Colorado, near the New Mexico border. The land was once part of Spanish land grants issued by the King of Spain.

The first European settlers moved north along the Rio Grande River from Santa Fe and Taos into current day southern Colorado, then part of Mexico.

With my deed to the land, I also got access rights to use nearby Sangre de Cristo mountain lands for cutting firewood for home use, cutting timber to build a home, and grazing rights for livestock. The mountain area is gated, and I am entitled to a gate key, thanks to the King of Spain.

Height restriction is common. I did see one a few years ago where house could only be one story and not obstruct the neighbors view. % of ground coverage is another people usually overlook. This causes some some people to hang the 2nd story over 2' front and back in order to get more square footage upstairs. i saw one man remove his concrete driveway so he could build a garage in back yard. he replaced his driveway with two strips of concrete about 16" wide and left the center strip grass in order to meet to ground coverage restriction.

Not any particular deed restriction in my local area. There are properties in the mountains and local beach areas that have restrictions on heights and removal of trees.

Roof type restrictions come to mind.  In my geographic area, fire danger is very high near the west hills.  Putting shake roofs on a home is prohibited.

Here in my area is a state park called Honey Moon Island State Park.

Many years before Florida become a vacation spot, this island was designated Hog Island. At the same time deeds included the restriction of pigs/hogs must be confined.

Before that time, main street was used by people and apparently pigs.

This is not a deed restriction but a restriction within the contract.  My parents bought a home in Sepulveda, California in which the contract state that they will share the strawberry patch with their neighbors that crosses both property lines.  It was meant to be in perpetuity.

I've seen some corner lots specify which road could have access to the lot. I actually own a commercial lot that was on the edge of a residential neighborhood.  My access had to come from the heavy traffic street, not the side more residential side.

I haven't seen anything too creative. The last one I saw didn't allow manufactured homes and the homes to be built had to be at least a certain square footage.
