Sylvan Oaks Parcel M


SO M 3

2.5 acres - $16,900

Monthly Payment: $171.41

This property is covered with deep forest. Locate yourself in the middle of the parcel and you’ll feel all the privacy and seclusion that decent folks would even want, yet it’s only 4.2 miles from Willow Springs, and about half of that is paved road.

While most of the other properties at Sylvan Oaks are fairly hilly, this parcel has quite a bit of level ground, especially near the front of the property where you’ll appreciate it the most. The access road is a typical dirt road, but it’s good enough that you don’t need four-wheel-drive to get to it and if you don’t mind going a little slow, you won’t have a problem getting a car in either, although if you plan to do anything but camp, you’ll want a truck anyway.

The vegetation is mostly oaks and hickories, and the forest is dense, shady and quiet.

If your criteria include pretty, easy-to-work and cheap, you’re going to want to check out this parcel.









This is where you turn off County Road 1290.

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.
