Jacks Fork Farmsteads Parcel B

$7500 Down payment required – Includes Cabin, Artesian well, solar collectors, and fence Also requires a commercial composting toilet to meet State requirements.

The cabin is 24x12 feet.

This is one of those special deals we get from time to time. It already has a cabin, finished on the outside only, a well, fencing and solar collectors. All you really need to add is either a septic tank and leach field--which we wouldn’t advise in this location--or a commercial composting toilet--which we would.

This is a beautiful little valley location with creek frontage at a bend in the river. It’s peaceful and naturally secluded from the other properties at JFF by the surrounding hills. We have additional acreage available if you desire more.

The property itself is 10.0 acres which has been fully surveyed and fenced with welded corners and steel posts. Half of the acreage is open, level ground with rich, black soil. This is the moist area where the cabin is located. The other half is sloping or high ground which would be ideal for an orchard or as a place to pasture animals. It’s also a place with an uncommon about of natural water sources. In addition to the 140-foot-deep artesian well, there’s an intermittent spring that on the east side of the property and the South Jacks Fork River makes up the northern boundary. (Don’t worry, the cabin is on sufficiently high ground to avoid flooding from the Jacks Fork.) There’s a group of mature walnut trees, in the north end. The whole thing is yours for $87,000, payable as $7,500 upfront and 180 payments of $806.34.

  • 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.

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.

From Willow Springs, drive north on State Highway 137 about 9.0 miles after you pass the city limits. At the top of a hill, and just before you begin down the long downgrade to the Jacks Fork, you'll see the entrance on your left. Look for the small sign saying, “Jacks Fork Farmsteads”. Follow this road through the cattle guard, then to the bottom of the hill. There's not much way you can go wrong here, but just to be sure, it's a little less than 4/10ths of a mile to the small creek. After you cross the creek on the low-water bridge, the road forks. Take the left fork to the top of the hill, then take the right fork, then follow that past two ponds and down a long, straight passage, for over a quarter-mile to the end of this straight, where you’ll see a pipe gate, That’s the entrance into Parcel BB.

Inside the gate, once you get down to the bottom of the hill, the area around the cabin is usually moist and it’s easy to get stuck if you don’t know the field, which you don’t. We recommend you leave your car at the intermittent stream at the base of the hill until you become more familiar with the parcel.
