Jacks Fork Farmsteads Parcel Y
5.94 acres - $41,900
Monthly Payment - $424.98
This is the sort of property that we could sell a dozen of: it’s 5.94 acres of almost completely level land, with over 650 feet of frontage on a small, Ozark stream, just before that stream empties into the South Jacks Fork River.
Across the stream, is an area we’re keeping as green-space: it's a steep cliff which provides a dramatic touch to the parcel's southeast side. But the majority of the property is open meadow with perhaps thirty percent of the parcel devoted to heavy woods. The creek varies in width, being usually shallow enough to wade. To swim, you'll want to visit the green-space we've reserved as a swimming hole just a short stroll to the other side of the valley.
Everything has been completely surveyed, Willow Springs is about 11 miles away, electricity is already on the property, and we'll finance you 100%.
