Sold Properties - Historic 9 Acres on Bryant Creek with old homestead and well

SORRY, THIS PROPERTY HAS BEEN SOLD. This is a truly amazing property, with a little of everything! Direct creek frontage, a historic homesite, well, access to power/phone, county road frontage - this property is spectacular.

Bryant Creek is one of the most popular rivers/creeks in the Ozarks for fishing, floating and canoeing. It is VERY hard to find property with ANY direct frontage on the Bryant Creek. We know because we have been looking for years to find some! The photo above was taken directly on the property looking at Bryant Creek. There is good access right down to the water. Fish, float and canoe on your own property!

The sales price on this unique 9 acre tract of river front land is $64,500. With $500 down the monthly payments will be $680. This is about a 15 year payment schedule and an annual interest rate of 9 3/4%. With $1,500 down the interest rate drops to 7 3/4% and the payment drops to $595 a month. With $2,500 down the interest rate drops to 6 3/4% and the payment drops to $550 a month. With $5,000 down the interest rate drops to 5 3/4% and the payment drops to $495 a month. These payments are all based on about a 15 year payment schedule. Property taxes are only about $120 a year and are already taken care of for 2017. There are no prepayment penalties, no hidden fees and no balloon payments.

PLEASE NOTE that you have a full 12 months to ADD to your down payment in order to reduce your interest rate and payment amount!

 old homestead

In the photo above you can see part of the old homestead, as well as the well. We didn't even know that the well existed until we took the photos and videos so we have no idea how the water is. We did drop a small rock into the well and did hear it hit the water, so that's probably a good sign.

All around the old homestead there are walls made of stacked rock. This was obviously quite a showplace when it was lived in many years ago. You are sure to find some old artifacts on the homestead. If the area around the homestead were cleaned up it would be quite unique.

rock wall

The photo above is one section of rock wall at the old homestead. Very cool! The original homestead and rock walls may well date back to the Civil War era, or before.

huge tree

The photo above shows one of the gigantic trees in the yard of the old homestead. Our measurements of this tree (about 40 inches in diameter) indicate that it could be over 200 years old. That would mean that this tree could have been standing to witness the Civil War Battle that took place right by the property.

Now...in addition to the river frontage and old homestead, this property is about 100 yards from the the Vera Cruz Conservation Area. The Conservation Area is about 80 acres in size and contains additional access points to the Bryant Creek as well as Hunter Creek. The Conservation Area also offers primitive campsites as well as bathrooms. Although you will find the hunting and fishing to be excellent on the 9 acres, the Conservation Area is open for hunting, fishing and camping as well.

The aerial map above shows the property's boundaries as well as the approximate dimensions. The Vera Cruz Conservation Area is outlined in green. For more detail see the "close-up" aerial map farther down in this listing.

But wait...there's more...On November 7th, 1862 a Civil War Battle took place just to the east of the 9 acres. It was called the Battle Of Clark's Mill (you can google it to find out all of the information). The actual Core Battlefield Area (where the fighting took place) was just a few feet east of the property and the property itself is located within the Battlefield Study Area (where artifacts from the battle can be found).

The map above shows the location of the Battle of Clark's Mill. We have outlined the location of the 9 acres on the map. Feel free to bring your metal detector and see what you can find!

Of course, this 9 acres also has big mature timber, county road frontage, power and phone on site, a beautiful open meadow and views for miles. 

 

In the photo above we are parked in the open meadow on the south side of the property. We are looking north across County Road 230 toward the old homestead. 

The topo map above shows the terrain on the property. It is basically flat on the south side of County Road 230, going toward Bryant Creek. On the north side of County Road 230 it rises up sharply and then levels off again on the north side of the property. The property has frontage on County Road 214 along its north side BUT you would need to have a driveway cut in on the north side in order to drive onto the property there, as it sits up above the road. The land south of County road 230 is in the flood zone (like basically all open meadows adjacent to a major river/creek). Although you can build in the flood zone you would need to elevate your structure substantially. You will find the old homesite just north of County Road 230, where the land begins to rise up.

The photo above shows a close-up look at the south side of the property. Just north of County Road 230 is where you will find the old homestead. As you go north from the old homestead the land rises up steeply. There are multiple building sites on the north side of the property but keep in mind you will have to have a driveway cut in to access the north end with a vehicle.

The property is just a short drive from Ava, Missouri. Ava is a medium-sized town with a large Wal-Mart, lumberyard and numerous stores and restaurants. From Ava just take Highway 14 to the east for about 9 miles, then go left onto AB Highway. Go about 4 miles on AB Highway and the road will turn to gravel and you will come to a fork in the road. Go left at the fork (this is County Road 230), cross the small concrete bridge, continue for about 300 feet and you will be at the property. To get to the north side of the property continue going east on County Road 230 for roughly 1/4 mile and take your first left (this will be County Road 214). County Road 214 winds its way up the hill (steep) to the north side of the property.

We have three videos of this property because there is a lot to see! The first video shows the south part of the property and the frontage on Bryant Creek. The second video shows the north part of the property and the third video shows the old homestead on the property.
