Misty Springs Parcel 31



3.72 forested acres  -  $36,900
Monthly payment:   $374.26

Misty Springs Parcel 31, which is 3.72 acres (we just had new survey done). Near the very back of Misty Spring, the parcel is all wooded and about half of its area is reasonably level. Note that this area still looks very natural because all the electric lines are underground in the center of the access road, and the water-line is buried there, too. There’s a community well that you can hook up to. The property is subject to a handful of common-sense restrictions to assure that the property values remain high while allowing you to build any sort of home you want, of any size and style (except mobile homes).

You should take a look at this parcel before you buy it, because you’ll be completely amazed that such a place exists within a 30-minute drive of two of the Ozarks' most-visited cities. If that’s not enough, Parcel 31 is way back near the end of the road, so you can enjoy serious, peace-and-quiet rural living, and still be able to access colleges, major shopping centers, and all the country-western music your achy-breaky heart can stand.

You can find driving directions, as well as lots of photos, maps, and a complete collection of absolutely everything you could possibly want to know about this property, on our website. Check it out, you may never see a property like this for sale at an affordable price and terms again.
