Shady Ridge Parcel 16
1.9 acres - $15,900
Monthly Payment: $161.27
About as secluded as you can get without hiring a sherpa, this nearly-square parcel is covered with big hardwood timber and has a very slight southern slope. It’s located just below a ridge-top a little over 12 miles from town on an old road that, while it’s been in use for decades, is still pretty rough and will require that you own a four-wheel-drive for year-round access. There’s a cross-country electric transmission line running along the east side which will provide you with a ready place garden or locate solar panels without having to cut any timber yourself. The long view in the corridor that this provides probably means this wouldn’t be a bad spot for deer hunting either.
- 1.90 acres fully surveyed
- SHADY RIDGE PARCEL 16: All that part of the West Half of the West Half of the Northeast Quarter of the Northeast Quarter of the Southeast Quarter, and all that part of the East Half of the East Half of the Northwest Quarter of the Northeast Quarter of the Southeast Quarter of Section 9, Township 28 North, Range 9 West lying south and east of the centerlines of the access roads thereon.
- We will pass Fee Simple Title to the purchaser conveying 100% of the ownership of the property including all timber, mineral and water rights. We own this property free and clear of all tax liens, judgments mortgages or other encumbrances. As purchaser, you are not assuming any existing liens. We will record a Warranty Deed to the property in your name after you have made six monthly payments.
- Access via deeded easement from Rainbow Road (county) to the property.
- We do not supply water or water systems to any of these properties. Purchasers of these parcels need to arrange to drill their own private water well. For information on drilling procedures you should contact local well drillers which are listed in the yellow pages of local phone books or we will recommend some to you.Current prices charged by local well drillers run around $8 per foot to drill and $9-13 per foot to install a 6 inch casing. Missouri law requires a minimum of 80 feet of casing in all locations and more in some. The estimated cost of a complete well, casing and pump system in this area is $7,500. Permits are not required to drill water wells for single family dwellings; however you are required to hire a state-licensed well driller.
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
- Telephone and Internet:
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.
The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has given general approval for this usage of this site for individual sewage treatment systems.
Septic systems must be constructed in accordance with County and State standards, and you must obtain permission from the Texas County Health Department, 950 N. Highway 63, Houston, MO 65483, (417) 967-4131 to install a septic tank. The average cost of a septic tank and drain field is $3500.
- Propane gas is available from local dealers.
- Mail Delivery:
- Mail is delivered to Shady Ridge on Rainbow Dr.. To establish a mailbox there, contact the postmaster at Cabool Post Office.
These five restrictions apply to all of our older locations.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Building codes and/or permits:
- Texas County does not issue building permits and no building codes are in effect. The County Health Department must approve your septic system.
Driving Directions to Locate Shady Ridge Parcel 16:
Getting there: Begin in Willow Springs and go north on Highway 137. About 3 miles out of town, Highway HH turns north (left) a 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, go straight, staying on HH, and turn right on the first county (unpaved) road beyond, 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. 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 go under a large powerline where a smaller road turns right down the powerline. You'll see the t-posts marking Parcel 16 in about 100 yards. According to the survey, there's better than 330 feet of frontage on this trail.
You can get a two-wheel-drive into Shady Ridge most of the time, but if you're really serious about the necessities of life, you'll not attempt to build here unless you have a four-wheel-drive. The road has steep sections that people currently go up with 2-wheel drives, buth this tends to result in a lot of lots of expensive tire-spinning that causes treacherous wash-boarding.
