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.

This parcel is off-grid: that is, electrical service has not been extended to the property. The nearest electrical line is some distance away, and it would be more practical to provide your own electricity via wind or solar means.
However, commercial electricity is provided to the area by:
6327 N US Hwy 63
West Plains, MO 65775
We do not provide any means of sewage disposal for these properties. Being in a rural area, the most common methods of sewage disposal are by individual on-site septic tanks, however composting toilets and out-houses are permitted.

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.
