Whitetail Draw Parcel I

Introduction

WDI1

1.6 acres - $9,900

Monthly Payment: $100.41

     Whitetail Draw Parcel I is one of our most remote properties. It's about 5.8 miles northwest of the little town of Bunker, Mo. (pop. 447) and about 53.8 miles southeast of the considerably larger town of Rolla, Mo. (pop. 19,559). This is a small parcel with big, mature forest, not some clear-cut disaster as the price might suggest. It’s a great place for hunters, naturalists, and people who know their way around very rural locations, so it should come as no surprise that the last quarter-mile of the road into this place is steep and—unless someone’s been driving it recently, and they probably haven’t—then you can expect it to be grown up in chest-high weeds, although one of the owners had cut the weeds when we were there last.

     The parcel itself is fairly steep to, but it has 165 feet of frontage on the rather crude access road, and we’ve made a short driveway into the property, which ends in a small clearing that we also cleared. (It’s now likely to be grown up in weeds, or will be by mid-summer). The nearest power-line is about half a mile away, but you’d do better to consider this place off-grid and not sign yourself up for the kind of frustration you’d be subjected to in getting commercial electricity extended down into this secluded hollow and up to your cabin, yurt, or igloo.

     If you own a well-broken-in chainsaw and a four-wheel-drive with a few scratches and dings on it, this could very well be the best deal you’ll find on the market today, but if you’re just looking for a place with a lower price than the ones that have all the stuff you really want: i.e. paved-road frontage, DSL, and land-line phone service, you will rue the day you ever saw this place.

     On the other hand, if you are a classic, rough-hewn, he-man or he-woman, then you won’t find a better place, better woods, or a better price.

Details

Size:

  • 1.6 acres (estimated)

Legal Desciption:

  • WHITETAIL DRAW PARCEL I: All that part of the South Half of the North Half of the North Half of the Southwest Quarter of the Southwest Quarter Section 25, Township 33 North, Range 3 West lying east of the center-line of the access road thereon

Title:

  • 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:

  • Whitetail Draw is accessed from Mo. Highway 72 by County Roads 926 and 920, the first a two-lane black-top road and the second a two-lane gravel road, both maintained by Reynolds County.  The parcels are accessed by a 20-foot-wide roadway on a 40-foot recorded easement.  Maintenance of this road is the responsibility of the land-owners.  This road includes two very steep hills and sometimes gets overgrown from lack of traffic.

Utilities:

  • Water:

    • 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.

  • Electric:

    • Electrical service is currently located across the road from the northwest corner of the property. BLACK RIVER ELECTRIC CO-OP www.blackriverelectric.com P.O. Box 31, Fredricktown, MO 63645
      (800)392-4711  provides electricity to Whitetail Draw.  Electrical hook-up is free to permanent residences; however charges could change at any time.

  • Telephone and Internet:

  • Septic:

    • 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 Reynolds County Health Department P.O. Box 40 Centerville, MO 63633 Phone: 573-648-2498 
      FAX: 573-648-2510 to install a septic tank. The average cost of a septic tank and drain field is $3500.

  • Gas:

    • Propane gas is available from local dealers.

  • Mail Delivery:

    • Mail is delivered to Whitetail Draw on County Roads 926 and 920. To establish a mailbox there, contact the postmaster at the Bunker Post Office.

 

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.

Building codes and/or permits:

  • Reynolds County does not issue building permits and no building codes are in effect. The County Health Department must approve your septic system.

Taxes:

  • $20 (estimated)

Directions


Driving Directions to Locate Whitetail Draw Parcel I:

      Whitetail Draw is about 90 minutes southeast of St. Louis in Reynolds County.  Assuming you successfully locate Bunker in western Reynolds County, go northwest from there on Hwy. 72 until you get to a sign on the right (north) that says' "Crossville Southern Baptist Church" turn there on this recently-paved road and go 1.1 miles to the first road past the highline, then turn right. Follow that road 1/2 mile (bearing left) When you see our "road" on the left, you've arrived.  (If you're unsure, look for the U.S.G.S. survey stake on the left after you've turned in off the county road, this means you have to get out of the vehicle).  From the county road, you'll follow this trail down a very steep hill, around a right-angle turn, and then deep into a hollow.  You may see a t-post on the left as you drive past, that's Parcel C.  Keep going until you see a t-post with pink ribbons on it, on your RIGHT (east), then you'll see another 165 feet beyond it.  You have arrived.

 Disclaimer:  These directions are accurate to the best of our knowledge but cannot be guaranteed.  Visit this property at your own risk, we are not responsible for accidents.
