Let me give you a little history of This Week’s Featured Property: we sold this 4.25-acre parcel to a rather reclusive gentleman from east of here a couple of years ago. Before his health forced him to need assistance, he had an easy-going, simple lifestyle here that I think might appeal to a number of oddballs, perhaps some as usual as yourself.
He had a portable cabin moved there, heated it with wood, brought in water (I’d want a well, myself) and got his electricity from solar panels. The ultimate minimalist lifestyle.
Ozark Divide Parcel A offers even more privacy than you’d expect from its location,15 miles from town. Being all wooded and situated on the inside of a curve of a sleepy two-lane blacktop, folks driving past are too busy negotiating the curve to notice a cabin in the woods. Once on the property, there’s a hardened stone driveway that curves back into the shade of some cedar trees where the previous owner had a small cabin—which is gone now. There’s is enough almost-level land here to place a cabin, park a vehicle, and maybe plant a few tomatoes. The rest is decidedly steep and covered with large timber.
The rest of the parcel is a steep western slope covered in tall hardwoods. Since it’s at a high elevation you can get pretty good cell phone service there. It’s been surveyed, staked and
4.25 acres, surveyed and staked.
Ozark Divide Parcel A: as shown on the Official Plat of Ozark Divide recorded in the Office of the Texas County Recorder, Houston, MO, Survey Book 2019S, Page 34, Instrument Number 201900034, all in Section 27, Township 29 North, Range 9 West.
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.
The Ozark Divide Properties are accessed by Missouri State Highway Y, a two-lane asphalt highway 22 feet in width. Individual parcels are accessed by an unpaved rock-hardened roadway of one and two lanes.
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. 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. Commercial electricity is provided to the area by: Intercounty Electric Co-op, Licking, MIssouri, but lines have not been extended to the parcels. Intercounty charges 8 dollars per foot to extend electricity making them less competitive of private solar or wind installations.
Telephone and Internet
Telephone and internet services are provided to Ozark Divide by CenturyLink1-800-201-4099. http://www.centurylink.com/ For cell phone service, we recommend US Cellular and for internet, a satellite provider.
You may not take up occupancy until you provide sewage disposal for your property in the form of either:
(A.) a septic tank and leach field, or
(B.) a commercially manufactured composting toilet system.
The State of Missouri says that any septic tank and leach field on less than three acres must be installed to Missouri Department of Natural Resources specifications. You can get information on these by speaking to the Health Department in your respective County Seat.
Since they do not endanger the ground-water, properly operated and maintained composting toilets are not restricted, and thus are permitted at all locations.
Open dumping is illegal in the state of Missouri. Before occupying the property, you must make arrangements with a State-approved garbage collection company
Propane gas is available from local dealers.
Mail is delivered to Ozark Divide on Missouri Highway Y. To establish a mailbox there, contact the postmaster at the Cabool Post Office.

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.
