Seclusion, privacy and plenty of space to roam free are what you’ll find with this remarkable 355 +/- acres nestled in the Ozark Mountains on Bull Shoals Lake. Over 2.3 miles of property boundaries border the shore's edge of this pristine lake known for its bass, crappie, and walleye fishing. Public access and a boat launch are just 1/2 mile to the East from the gated entry where the County maintained road meets the start of the driveway that winds through the trees and fields making its way to a secluded lake view cabin.
Whether it’s farming, hunting, homesteading, or just a vacation getaway you seek, there are boundless possibilities for how to best make use of this opportunity to own a little slice of the Ozarks. Three different pasture areas provide over 30 acres of cleared fields being actively hayed; with perimeter fencing and cross fencing existing over the years (see “Fence Map” in documents). Four ponds are seated amongst the mix of hardwoods and evergreens that also call this land their home (see “Pond Map”). Various trails are established leading to favorite spots tucked away through the mature timbers, though recent storms have created the need for a bit of trail clean-up.
There is no shortage of wildlife roaming about the acreage from the whitetail bedded down in the walnut grove and the waterfowl at the water's edge, to the wild turkey strutting in the fields and the wide variety of fish to be caught in the lake. Lions, tigers, and bears, oh my?! We’ll soon see, as trail cams are being placed around to capture what other creatures are roaming wild. It’s been decades since the property was hunted creating a safe haven for woodland residents scampering about. At one point in years past, the sellers harvested 21 different varieties of grapes from the very soils of the land for their wine-making hobby.
A one-owner cabin adorns the property's edge at the Missouri/Arkansas border, with year around views of Bull Shoals Lake and the scenic ridge tops across the way into Arkansas. Built with love and pride for their family to grow and enjoy, this three-bedroom/two-bath cabin boasts remarkable craftsmanship from the solid hardwood floors throughout to the two-story natural stone fireplace and vaulted beam ceilings. The wood-burning fireplace was meticulously designed with rocks selected and harvested by the owners themselves straight off the property. This artistic feature of the home is also functional in providing cozy spaces to warm up beside on both the main and second floors. The cabin has been ever so gently used serving only as a vacation home for the family since it was built in 1973; and though one might say it has a vintage ambiance, the timeless design and solid build will make updating and adding the new owner's personal touch a breeze.
