At 13.32 acres, this is the largest parcel at Jacks Fork Farmsteads. It’s at the end of a high ridge above the South Prong of the Jacks Fork River, which provides the beholder with a long view downstream, and of the scenic cedar bluff to the north. The north side of the parcel is an open field that slopes steeply downward to frontage on both the Schull Branch and the Jacks Fork River about 100 feet of elevation below the ridge.
About six acres of the land is open meadow with terrain that is steep, but mow-able. The balance of the property is devoted to an old forest of big oaks and scattered pines, including a gravelly one-acre section next to the Jacks Fork that’s almost inaccessible, lying as it does down a slope that’s too steep to walk on. It’s all quite dramatic.
Despite all that steepness, it’s an easy parcel to access, being just about a quarter-mile from pavement along the ridge, and ten miles or so outside of town (Willow Springs).
There’s lots of pasture if you have livestock, or the terrain would lend itself to an orchard or vineyard. Or, if you prefer to just sit and gaze, there’s a gorgeous view here every day of the year.

No Down Payment - Warranty Deed after Six MonthsWelcome to OzarkLand.com where, since 1982, we have dedicated ourselves to making Ozark Mountain land available to anyone who sincerely wants to own it, on a first-come, first-served basis. You don’t need to make a sizeable down payment, or any down payment at all—just start making the monthly payments.
All of the properties we sell are owned by us, free and clear. That means that when we pass title to you, you don't need to worry that some disinterested third party—such as a bank—may own an interest in the property. This is frequently not the case in the real estate world at large.
We give you a Warranty Deed guaranteeing the title—no lease-options, no long-term land contracts, but fee-simple title to the property after only six months' timely payments.
All of the properties featured in our inventory are available to you via our very liberal financing plan. In fact, we’ll finance your whole land purchase with less paperwork and frustration than you'd experience buying a used car, and with no hidden expenses and one low-interest rate that’s remained unchanged since 1982.
We'll set up a contract with you in return for one monthly payment. After six monthly payments, we give you a Warranty Deed to the property, and we hold a Deed of Trust and Quit-Claim Deed as security. We record the deeds at the county courthouse at our expense, and we pay all closing costs.
There are no penalties for pre-payment.
Terms are 9% simple interest for 15 years.
