20+ Acres: - - Tract 11 Elk Ridge - 30 acre tract

Large 30 acre tract available in our NEWEST development: ELK RIDGE 

This development is prime hunting and recreational land with multiple areas on each tract for building and camping. Only a short drive from Eminence, Missouri and thousands of acres of National Forest. The area is full of whitetail deer, turkey and is only a few miles west of where the Department of Conservation has released a large herd of elk! It's centrally located with SO much to do in the area including trail rides, fishing and floating in the Jack's Fork River and so much more - these properties are a rare find! 

The photo above is an aerial photo (taken with our drone) of Tract 11 at Elk Ridge. 

Elk Ridge is limited to about 15 tracts so the area will never be crowded. There are miles of trails running through Elk Ridge which are ONLY for use of the property owners and their guests. Although EVERY tract at Elk Ridge does have frontage on a public road, each property owner has use of the existing network of trails to access different areas of their properties. These trails are for four wheelers, side-by-sides (Razors) and foot traffic. Electric is directly on Tract 11. We had good cell service where we parked the truck (on the north side of Tract 11).

The photo above is an aerial of the 30 acres. It's about 3,200 feet from north to south and has about 415  feet of direct road frontage, giving plenty of room for your choice of dozens of building and/camping sites. The property borders Highway 106 on its north end. It also has a trail running over the northernmost part and across the middle part of the property. These trails are easements for all property owners at Elk Ridge and give you access to different areas of the property. The property is the highest on the north end, by the paved road. As you go south, it slopes down into a valley. The valley has a small creek at the bottom which was flowing when we were out there BUT it may not flow year around. Then, as you continue going south it slopes back up to a ridge area. As you continue going south it slopes down again and then back up to another ridge on the south end.

The full sales price for the entire 30 acre tract is $39,500. These are possibly the LOWEST priced tracts we have ever had. With $500.00 down the monthly payment will be $415.00 with an annual interest rate of 9 3/4%. Taxes are only about $65 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 a larger down payment will substantially reduce your interest rate and monthly payment amount. With $1,500 down your rate drops to 7 3/4% and your monthly payment drops to $360.00. With $2,500 down your rate drops to 6 3/4% and your payment drops to $330.00. With $5,000 down your rate drops to 5 3/4% and your payment drops to $290.00.

Also please note that you have a FULL YEAR to add to your down payment in order to reduce your interest rate and payment amount!

Please refer to our interactive map above for additional property views and information. Please note that the boundary lines and measurements are approximate. This interactive map is BRAND NEW for us and if you have a chance we would love to have your feedback on it. Is it awesome? Is it great? Is it confusing? We would like to know!

Please keep in mind that many of the aerial maps/photos are about 3-4 years old, so they were taken pretty recently after the property had been logged. Within those 3-4 years thousands of small trees have started/continued to grow and a recent aerial would reflect that fact and would show a lot more "greenery". In fact, when you look at the videos/photos taken recently with our drone, you can see the property is covered with a large amount of young (and growing) timber.

 

Please note that on the interactive map it seems to work best if you click the "View Full Screen" option. Once you are in the "Full Screen" option you can select "Topo" to see a topographic map which shows how the property is situated. It slopes down off of the county road and then back up to a cool ridge, then back down and back up to another ridge. The views from the ridges are great!

 

interior roads

 

The map above shows part of the network of trails within Elk Ridge. These are not public roads, these are ONLY for the use of property owners and their guests. These existing roads can be used to access different areas of your property. These are VERY primitive roads (and they always will be). They are designed to be used for foot traffic, four wheelers or side-by-sides (Razors). These roads are permanent easements for property owners and their guests. When we were out at the property taking videos sections of the trails were VERY rough (we had a tremendous amount of rain just before taking the videos). Although we were able to make it through with a four wheeler, it was still pretty rough. The trail system connects to County Road 414 on the south end and Highway 106 on the north side of Elk Ridge. There is a trail and approach on the northernmost end of Tract 11 which is part of the easement road network.

The property is located about 4 miles west of Eminence, Missouri. The property is private and secluded (with an amazing amount of wildlife) but is also within about 5 minutes of Eminence, Missouri. Even though this huge tract will keep you busy exploring, hunting and camping you may be interested to know that within 10 miles of the property you will find over 10,000 acres of National Forest and State Lands upon which you can also hunt, camp, trail ride and play!

 

The photo above is an aerial photo taken at about the middle of Tract 11, looking to the north.

The property was logged about 4-5 years ago. It was logged heavily. Although there are a few larger trees left, much of the property is covered with thousands of young oak, pine and hickory trees (as well as many other species). Sometimes we spend a few weeks and clean up a property that has been logged but since we have quite a few projects right now we have decided so leave these properties as they are and sell them at a reduced price. You could certainly clean up the property by yourself but years of experience has shown us that after just a few years the limbs left from the loggers will rot away, the remaining trees will grow quickly and the property will look excellent. 

Please click on the video below to see an aerial video we took of the property using our new drone. It's pretty cool! We also have one of our more "normal" videos down below this one (on foot, the old-fashioned way).

 This tract is subject to the 6 basic Deed Assurances as shown on our website (no mobile homes, etc.). Homes or cabins built on the property which are to be used as a residence must have a minimum concrete foundation size of 600 square feet (a simple 20 X 30 cabin would meet this requirement).

To see the standard Deed Assurances please click here. 

The area is full of deer and wild turkey and even some elk sightings. Perfect for hunting and recreation!

To get to the property from Springfield, Missouri just go east on Highway 60 to the town of Birch Tree. Keep going east past Birch Tree for a few miles and then go north (left) onto Highway E. Stay on Highway E for about 11 miles and then go east (right) onto Highway 106. Proceed about a mile to the property which will be on the south side (right side) of the road.

This is a LARGE property so please be sure to print out the maps from this listing so that you can really explore the acreage. The drive may be a little tricky on your first visit but if you have all of the maps and directions it will make it much easier. We will be happy to email you the maps/directions if you would like, just let us know.

Above is a topo map of Tract 11 with approximate property boundaries. The property slopes down fairly steeply off of the Highway (as you go south). The property then slopes back up to a ridge area on the south side of the property (amazing views) which could be an excellent spot for a large campsite or for building a cabin. The trails which run through Elk Ridge will be helpful in accessing the different areas on the property. The blue lines that cross over the property on the topo map indicate two small creeks. When we were out at the property the small creek on the north side was flowing but we did not check out the small creek on the south side. Both of the creeks are probably "wet-weather" creeks that do not flow year around.

The full sales price for the entire 30 acre tract is $39,500. These are possibly the LOWEST priced tracts we have ever had. With $500.00 down the monthly payment will be $415.00 with an annual interest rate of 9 3/4%. Taxes are only about $65 a year and are already taken care of for 2017. There are no prepayment penalties, no hidden fees and no balloon payments.
