Every piece of land, of course, can serve numerous purposes, and during our 36 years in business, we’ve seen just about everything either done or, at least, attempted.
In the case of Lorelei Trails Parcel BB, though one of the things that keeps occurring to me is that this place would be an excellent location where you don’t do anything.
By that, I don't mean that it’s a good place to goof off. All places are good for that.
But we get a lot of buyers who want a parcel of land for the future, and they want to buy it now before the land prices, which are always skyrocketing, skyrocket.
This would be a good place for that because it’s simply composed of big black oak and hickory timber. Let it sit like it is now for fifteen or twenty years until you retire, and if the last thousand years or so is any indication, it should be worth quite a bit more than it cost you.
It’s almost all uncommonly level, for the Ozarks, except for a steep depression in the northwest corner. Since the northwest corner falls into a hollow, this could be just an extension of this hollow, or it could be a sinkhole.
After spending countless hours poring over aerial photos of land for the last thirty-some years, especially in this area, I just discovered a straight line of four sinkholes, five if this is one.
The others are on other properties, which are pretty level themselves, but because of this hollow you can’t tell about the depression on this parcel, or I can’t anyway.
This property is in a very remote area that requires four-wheel drive, so it’s no surprise that this is an extremely quiet and peaceful place. Just perfect for your retirement… someday. Right now, I can’t call it off grid, because there’s buried-cable telephone land-line, and electricity isn’t that far away.

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.
This parcel is off-grid: that is, electrical service has not been extended to the property. The nearest electrical line is some distance away and it would be more practical to provide your own electricity via wind or solar means.
Commercial electricity is provided to the area by:
6327 N US Hwy 63
West Plains, MO 65775
These five restrictions apply to all of our older locations.

Driving Directions to Locate Lorelei Trails Parcel BB:
From Hwy Y in Southern Texas County, turn left (south) on Shelton Road. Now it gets tricky... From Shelton Road to the property.
At about 9/10ths mile down Shelton Road, you'll see a road turning back to the right at a very sharp angle. Take this road.
About a quarter-mile later, you'll come to the first creek crossing. Beyond that, you'll see a house and yard straight ahead of you - look for where the road takes a sharp bend to the left and follow that.
First you'll have another smaller creek crossing, then the road forks. Don't take the fork going up-hill, which has a gate on it anyway, take the right fork into the open area. Check your odometer at this fork.
You'll go past an abandoned farm on your right, make another creek crossing, and come to a very steep hill. At the top of this hill, the road forks again. This should be about half a mile past your odometer check.
Follow this narrow, rocky road down into a hollow, then up another steep hill. Go to the top of the hill and turn hard right. From there, you'll go about 350 yards to where the survey ribbons marking the SW corner are located.
