Chapel Road 2.14 Acres



2.14 acres - $25,900

Monthly Payment: $262.70

We’re selling this property as 2.14 acres, but in fact it is actually 2.29 acres because the southeast corner is on the far side of Highway 137. (You’re probably having fantasies of setting up your very own toll-booth already.)The location is 7 miles north of Willow Springs, Missouri.

Despite the fact that this land fronts on both the state highway and a peaceful county-maintained road, the terrain is pretty steep. Chapel Road runs north along the western boundary. From that frontage, the parcel descends quickly into a narrow valley, then there’s another steep hill up to the east fence, where you have a truly inspiring view across the rolling hills leading toward the South Jacks Fork Valley. Owing to this wild terrain, there are scenic views all around, and you can see 95% of the property from the building spot.

“The building spot?,” you ask. There’s really only one location on the parcel that you’d say was buildable by conventional means: the southwest corner. That area is covered with lots of flowering shrubs and perennials dating back to when an early Ozark cabin was located here, Electricity and land-line phone/DSL are already on the property. There’s also a small pond in that area, as well as two more stock ponds in the center and east of the property.

This land carries no deed restrictions, so long as you drill a modern well before taking up residence.
