Sold Properties - 3.28 acres ON the River. No permits required! - ID#JR03


River on property

The James River in one spot on the property. This section of river is great for fishing and floating.

This 3.28 acre tract offers a rare chance to own direct frontage on the popular James River.

The James River has long been a very popular river not only because of the fishing and floating but also because of its proximity to Springfield which is the largest and fastest growing city in southern Missouri. Marshfield, Missouri is also a popular town and is only about 5 miles from the property.

It is VERY hard to find any small acreage available on the James River, especially only five miles out of Marshfield.

This tract is subject to the 6 basic restrictions as shown on our website (no mobile homes, etc.). Also, if you build a cabin or home on the property it must have a concrete foundation no less than 600 square feet in size. A simple 20 X 30 foot cabin will meet this requirement as long as it is on a concrete foundation (slab, stem wall or basement).

Here are the directions to the property: From Marshfield, Missouri take Highway A to the south. After you leave the city limits of Marshfield you will go 3.3 miles and then go right (west) onto Bell Ford Road. Stay on Bell Ford Road for just under 2 miles and you will get to the bridge over the James River. Continue past the river for a few hundred yards and you will see Tract 3 on the right, it will be the 3rd gate on the right. To get to the property from Springfield go east on Highway 60 for about 20 miles then go north on Highway A. Stay on Highway A for 8.2 miles then go left (west) onto Bell Ford Road. Now continue to the property as stated above. If you come from Springfield you will actually see Bell SPRINGS Road before you see Bell FORD Road. Either one can get you to the property but on your first visit it might be easier to take Bell FORD Road.  When you visit the property PLEASE print out the maps and directions we have provided as it can be tricky the first time you drive to the property. If you would like us to email you all of the maps and pictures just let us know. Feel free to go check out the property and walk all around.
