Lorelei Trails Parcel CC



2.5 acres - $16,900

Monthly Payment: $171.41

This parcel covered in big oaks and hickories, some 80 and 90 feet tall, in a down-right remote, off-grid setting. (There’s land-line phone, but no electricity.) It’s great for campers, hunters, foresters, nudists, and eccentric hermits. As an investment, it’s currently covered with majestic hardwood forest that only improves with time, and it’s permanently attached to the only planet currently deemed hospitable to humans, whose ever-burgeoning numbers are legion. Speaking of the earth, and owning and maintaining 2.5 acres of living trees, did you know that in one growing season a single mature tree produces enough oxygen to service the breathing habits of 10 adult homo-sapiens?

Located about 18 miles from the nearest town, Cabool, Missouri, you really should have a vehicle with good ground clearance to get here, and 4WD will be needed in winter, if you simply can’t stay home.

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 Lorelei Trails Parcel CC:

Now it gets tricky... From Shelton Road to the property.  At about 9/10ths mile down Shelton Road, you'll see three mailboxes on your left, and 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 bad road down into a hollow, then up another steep hill. Go to the top of the hill and turn hard right. You'll cross a ridge-top and just as the road starts to go downhill, you'll see a t-post marker on your left.
