Saffron Mountain Parcel C


SM C 7

5.3 acres - 23,900

Monthly Payment - $242.41

This parcel is located on the very tippy-top of an Ozark mountain, and only a mile and a half from Eminence, Missouri, which is one of the more picturesque little towns along the Jacks Fork River. Eminence, the county seat of Shannon County, also touts itself as the Trail-riding Capital of the World, so who are we to argue? If you’re into canoeing, horseback riding, or any of the zillions of other outdoor experiences the Ozarks has to offer, this is clearly the place for you.

The parcel fronts on a narrow little access road and, despite its shortcomings of small width and large bumpiness, you can still get a passenger car into the parcel, albeit carefully. Additionally, there’s a level turn-out made so that you can pull your passenger car off the road and have a level place to camp, or, later on, build a little cabin overlooking the abyss and enjoying a fantastic view of the valley and mountains to the north.

This parcel is currently off-grid; the nearest electricity is about a quarter-mile to the east. We get good cell-phone reception there.

Legal Description:

  • SAFFRON MOUNTAIN PARCEL C: All that part of the West Half of the East Half of the Northwest Quarter of the Northeast Quarter lying north of the access road thereon, all in Section 22, Township 29 North, Range 4 West.


  • We will pass Fee Simple Title  to the purchaser conveying 100% of the ownership of the property including all timber, mineral and water rights.

  • We own this property free and clear of all tax liens, judgments mortgages or other encumbrances.  As purchaser, you are not assuming any existing liens.

  • We will record a Warranty Deed to the property in your name after you have made six monthly payments.


  • Access is by Missouri State Highway 19, 1.8 miles north of Eminence.


  • Water:
    • We do not supply water or water systems to any of these properties.  Purchasers of these parcels need to arrange to drill their own private water well.  For information on drilling procedures you should contact local well drillers which are listed in the yellow pages of local phone books or we will recommend some to you.  Current prices charged by local well drillers run around $8 per foot to drill and $9-13 per foot to install a 6 inch casing.  Missouri law requires a minimum of 80 feet of casing in all locations and more in some.  The estimated cost of a complete well, casing and pump system in this area is $7,500.  Permits are not required to drill water wells for single family dwellings; however you are required to hire a state-licensed well driller.

  • Electric:
    • Electrical service is not extended to the property. BLACK RIVER ELECTRIC CO-OP P.O. Box 31, Fredricktown, MO 63645 (800)392-4711 Provides electricity to Saffron Mountian. Electrical hook-up is free to permanent residences; however charges could change at any time.

  • Telephone and Internet:
  • Septic:
    • We do not provide any means of sewage disposal for these properties. Being in a rural area, the most common methods of sewage disposal are by individual on-site septic tanks, however composting toilets and out-houses are permitted.

    • The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has given general approval for this usage of this site for individual sewage treatment systems.

    • Septic systems must be constructed in accordance with County and State standards.  To install a septic tank you must obtain permission from:

      Shannon County Health Department,
      110 Grey Jones Drive
      P.O. Box 788
      Eminence, MO 65466-0788
      Phone: 573-226-3914

    • The average cost of a septic tank and drain field is $3500.

  • Gas:
    • Propane gas is available from local dealers.

  • Mail Delivery:
    • Mail is delivered to Saffron Mountain on Highway 19.  To establish a mailbox there, contact the postmaster at the Eminence Post office.

These five restrictions apply to all of our older locations:

  1. No buildings shall be constructed closer than 100 ft. from a roadway or 30 ft. from a boundary. (This may be adjusted in certain locations.)

    Explanation: buildings placed closer can cause situations that interfere with road maintenance and utility transmission.
  2. No refuse, debris, unused building materials nor derelict vehicles shall be allowed to collect on the premises.

    Explanation: piles of junk are not only unsightly, but tend to spread to adjoining vacant parcels. Dead cars and junk make it harder for us to sell adjacent properties, or for you to sell yours.

  3. You may keep whatever livestock or pets you wish so long as they are not allowed to create a nuisance to neighboring land owners.

    Explanation: this probably means that if you want to keep pigs in the most common fashion, you need a parcel of at least 5 acres with a back corner located away from anyone else's home. Lots of barking dogs may also cause you problems depending on the size of your parcel and how you locate your facilities. 

  4. No parcel shall be further subdivided.

    Explanation: you may build more than one residence on a single parcel, but you may not deed away a part of the parcel to someone else.
  5. All wastewater treatment facilities shall be constructed in accordance with applicable state water quality standards.

    Explanation: if you plan to construct an in-ground septic system, it must meet state standards. We find that the typical state-approved septic system will cost upwards of $3,000 for labor and materials. Additionally, the state says that any septic system on less than three acres be built to Missouri Department of Natural Resources specifications. Parcels of 5 acres or greater are virtually unrestricted. Since they do not endanger the ground-water, composting toilets and outhouses are not restricted.


  • $20.00 (estimate)

 Building Codes and/or Permits

  • Shannon County does not issue building permits and no building codes are in effect. The County Health Department must approve your septic system.
