    The purpose of a covenant like this is to prevent the property from being used for non-residential purposes to the detriment of the estate. It's doubtful whether what you plan to do on the property itself would be classed as "trade or business" and even less likely that anyone would seek to take enforcement action (this would have to be done through the courts and could be very expensive). You shouldn't be concerned
