Mooney Branch Parcel K



1.8 acres - $15,900

Monthly Payment: $161.27

Several years ago, we sold this property to some truly horrid people who proceeded to create such a mess there that we now require buyers to receive written approval from us before moving to their parcel. (Don’t worry, if your home’s never been raided by the county health department, it probably won’t be a problem.)

Anyway, some people just seem to be magnets for junk, and in a breathtakingly short time, they had scattered so much of it around that now, some years later, it’s taken us weeks to clean it all up, and frankly we didn’t get every last bit, as you may see in some of the photos we’ve put online. But that’s the bad news. The good news, as far as this parcel goes, is that because these terrible people were also heedless of such niceties as property boundaries, nearly all of their junk wound up on the adjoining parcel.

We cleaned it up anyway, it seemed like the neighborly thing to do, but as I say, we probably didn’t get every little scrap. So… forewarned is forearmed, as they say.

Other than that, this is one dandy little parcel of land. It’s a fully-surveyed 1.82 acres of rolling terrain covered with oaks and pines. It has 222 feet of frontage on a well-maintained county road 11 miles outside of Licking, MO, and it’s over 500 feet deep. It has an electric pole already on the property and land-line telephone in the ground. Perhaps best of all, the property is inside the boundaries of the Mark Twain National Forest and about a quarter mile from the parcel lies several thousand contiguous acres of government land for you to hunt, fish, explore, or get lost in, including miles of the storied Big Piney River.

We’d like to sell it to someone neat.

Legal Description:



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 Mooney Branch Parcel K:

From Licking, head west on Hwy. 32 to where Highway N turns right (the only choice). Continue until N turns to gravel, at an intersection where you take Texas Tower Road to the right. Follow this until you cross a creek-bed which will probably be dry (that's Mooney Branch).  Then near the top of the next hill, where the power line crosses the road, you'll see the parcel on your right.


1. These directions are accurate to the best of our knowledge but cannot be guaranteed. Visit this property at your own risk, we are not responsible for accidents.
2. We get the GPS coordinates from Google Earth. The likelihood of them being absolutely correct is minimal. Therefore...
3. Do not attempt to find this property without taking paper copies of our maps and directions.
