Shady Ridge Parcel 15



2.45 acres - $20,900

Monthly Payment: $211.98


Shady Ridge Parcel 15 is covered with hardwood timber, all except for a 50-100-foot swath on the east side which is devoted to an electrical utility transfer easement. This property is off-grid (you can’t hook up to this transfer line) but having this easement on your property means that the eastern half-acre of the property will always be kept free of brush and trees, courtesy of the power company. I think you’ll see that this can be handy for the landowner, especially the absentee owner who needs a place to park, for example, when visiting the property, and who, perhaps, doesn’t realize how quickly the brush can grow back.

Then there’s the lay of the land: even though the local terrain is quite hilly, the back two acres of this parcel are nearly level with a very, very, gentle southern slope. It wouldn’t be difficult to build on any square foot of this property.

That west two acres is also covered with big oaks and hickories. This property has not been timbered in over 50 years. On the hottest days of the year, you can count on the interior of this parcel being ten degrees cooler than the parking lot at Wal-Mart.

Both Willow Springs and Cabool, Missouri are about 12 miles away.

The Bad News, if you see it as such, is that the access road into this property is simply awful, and you shouldn’t consider this property unless you have a four-wheel drive. Period.

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 15:

Getting there: Begin in Willow Springs and go north on Highway 137. About 3 miles out of town, Highway HH turns north (left) and 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 Hightway U. You go straight, staying on HH, and turn right on the first county (unpaved) road beyond. That will be Jackson Road. Follow this about half a mile to the intersection with Raimbow 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. This is where you need 4WD. 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 come to a large powerline where another road bends off to the right (south).

Now you're at the northeast corner of the property. The parcel fronts this road from here back from whence you came about 330 feet, and it fronts the road running south about 400 feet.
