Shady Ridge Parcel 23


SR23 4

2.13 acres - $18,900

Monthly Payment: $191.70

 This pretty-level parcel of mature oaks is located at a very rural intersection and we've had the whole thing recently surveyed.  It’s located on a ridge-top a little over 12 miles from town on an old road that, while it’s been in use for decades, is still pretty rough and will require that you own a four-wheel-drive for year-round access.  Level enough to garden and heavily forested so you have unimagined privacy.





SR23 1

Here's a typical section of the access road.  Photos of bad roads like this never look as bad as the road looks in real life, so you might want to remember that.   To access this parcel year-round, you've got to have four-wheel drive.

SR23 2

Here's the intersection that marks the west side of the property.  All the rest of these photos were taken on, or looking directly at, Parcel 23.

Legal Desciption:





Deed Restrictions:

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.

Driving Directions to Locate Shady Ridge Parcel 23:

 Getting there: Begin in Willow Springs and go north on Highway 137.  About 3 miles out of town, Highway HH turns north (left) a so should you.  Follow HH through some very scenic country, crossing a number of small streams that flow east.  After about 7 miles (or so) you'll come to where HH intersects with Highway U, go straight, staying on HH, and turn right on the first county (unpaved) road beyond, Jackson Road.  Follow this about half a mile to the intersection with Rainbow Drive (sign missing) and take that to the left.  When you come to the first fork in the road, take the right fork (marked " Shady Ridge Road").  This road, in turn, runs about 1 mile through a stand of young pines, then down into a steep hollow and to another fork where you go right, uphill.  When you come to the top of this hill, you'll be in Shady Ridge.  The road forks again in front of an unusual construction; you take the left fork.  About a quarter-mile later, you'll go under a large power line and right after that a smaller road turns left further into the woods.  This intersection is the west side of Parcel 23  You'll see the survey ribbons marking the parcel.
