Jessica Springs Parcel N



10.0 acres - $58,900

Down Payment: $1000.00

Monthly Payment: $597.40

This property displays two extremes: on the one hand, it has this building sort of thing, which is so poorly constructed that we consider it a liability to the price rather than an asset. Even if the photos we’ve included don’t discourage you from the idea that this is a place you can fix up and live in, let me be clear: it isn’t. You can’t.

That is, while it may be physically possible, like the notion of spending the winter in a tent, it’s likely not going to be the romantic episode you anticipate. We see more and more people living very comfortably in very small homes that don’t cost a lot more than this shack did. There are more and more people living very easy-going lifestyles in converted portable-buildings. This building, on the other hand, is junk. Use it for storage, then tear it down in a few years.

With the shack out of the way, this parcel of land is exceptionally beautiful, the kind of woods where you’d expect to meet gnomes and fairy princesses, and if you’re more impressed by material reality-based assets, it has a modern, deep well of the sort for which you might expect to pay $6-7,000 in cash.

The land is a ten-acre square, 660 feet on each side, which you find at the end of a densely-shaded access road running through a deep arbor of overhanging trees. The north side of the property is partly cleared for the electric easement. That’s where the building and well are located. The building has been constructed on a glade area that tends to seep water along the surface of the ground year-round. It’s a sort of pretty area to observe, but not a good one to build in. Below this are many small glades and some enormous rock outcroppings, and these give way to big hardwood-timber as you walk down the gentle southern slope to the south boundary.

When you see it, you’ll agree that it’s a gorgeous forest to build in, with water and electricity already in place.

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.
