This scenic and rugged lake parcel offers wild terrain, lots of towering hardwood trees, and a couple of wildly situated building spots. You can build a home amid the tree-tops on this parcel that features extreme elevation changes, big native oaks, and Ozark-style verdant vistas all around. It’s really a cunning and scenic tract of woods, and it just happens to be at the top of the hill above Clearwater Lake in Reynolds County, Missouri, twelve miles east of the hamlet of Ellington. So, besides this charming property, you also have thousands of acres of state and federal government forest surrounding the lake and scattered about the neighborhood, in case staying home in your own woods gets a little tedious. There’s a boat dock and marina at the bottom of the hill if you’re into boating, and thousands of acres of hunting ground if you enjoy killing things.
Christina’s Cove Parcel I has three different water features for you to appreciate. First, it’s located on a famous and everlasting limestone aquifer, so you can expect to drill a well and be rewarded with a lifetime supply of cold, clean, agua. Second, there’s a tiny wet-weather spring that runs infrequently (you might want to develop it) and finally, there’s the 1,000-mile shoreline of Bull Shoals Lake just at the bottom of the hill below the parcel. (Well, technically, the bottom of the hill is about 200 feet below the surface of the lake, but you know what I mean.)
You will probably not find a property similar to this one on today’s market.
“Surely,” you’re thinking, “the Ozarks must have several bajillion hill-tops offering long, inspiring views capable of making grown men drop to their knees overcome by momentary rapture.”
You would be right about that. You would also be right in saying that there are many, many small parcels of land for sale in the Ozarks on any given moment.
The thing is, that nearly all of those many-many small tracts of land currently for sale are covered with either forest, or The Poor Man’s Forest, i.e. brush.
That’s because forest occurs naturally on unmanaged land. Oh, it may take a few generations, during which panorama-clogging brush rules, but forest is inevitable in land left unattended. As you’ve perhaps noticed, nearly all the small parcels of land on the market, were cleaved from larger forested tracts, or in the case of the really poor-quality stuff, from recently timbered property, i.e. brush.
We’ve been doing business online for some time now. As the years have progressed, we’ve had less and less need of our terrestrial office in Willow Springs so that it’s gotten to the point that none of us go there anymore. That’s why we’ve decided to put it up for sale after 43 years of ownership. That is, we’re selling the office, along with the abandoned house next door, and our private jungle out back.
