Sold Properties - 10 acres with MAJOR river frontage - INVEST & PLAY! - ID#RN16

 

SORRY, THIS PROPERTY HAS BEEN SOLD!

Riverside At The Niangua is truly one of the most exciting and unique projects you will ever see. This small, private area contains a very limited number of tracts with TRUE frontage on the wildly popular Niangua River in the beautiful Missouri Ozarks.

Not only is the Niangua River one of the most popular and beautiful rivers in the state, but this particular section of the Niangua is well known to be a proven area for some of the most amazing fishing you can find ANYWHERE. Trout and bass fishing in this section of the river is popular year after year. This section is also home to a number of small resorts and outfitters as this particular section is EXCELLENT for canoing, kayaking, swimming and floating.

Bennett Springs State Park is just a few miles up the river from these tracts and the Park is regularly stocked with brown and rainbow trout, which are raised in the waters of the river. People come from all over the country to fish, float, kayak and canoe right here!

Properties with TRUE frontage on a named river are rare. Properties with TRUE frontage on the Niangua River, just down from Bennett Springs State Park are more than rare!

Could it get any better.......Yes! This particular portion of the Niangua River is what is referred to as a "White Ribbon Section" for trout fishing! The "White Ribbon" designation means that this section is managed specifically for catching rainbow and brown trout. There is only a 12 mile section along the entire Niangua River that is designated as a "White Ribbon Section" for trout fishing. This means more fishing and fun for you and your family!

For more information on the trout fishing click on the link below. It is a link to an article written by a man who was fishing for trout in the area adjacent to the NRO resort which is about one mile upriver from the property. 

To check out the trout fishing article please click here

Toward the end of the above article, the author recommends staying in a cabin at "One-eyed Willie's" campground, which is across the river and down a few hundred yards.

The large Barclay Conservation Area is DIRECTLY across the river from the tract! Not only does this give you 400+ acres of additional land for hunting, recreation, fishing and exploring BUT it also ensures that no one will build across from your riverfront tract!

By the way, the river is also well known for bass fishing as well as several other species. So if trout fishing isn't your thing you can go after the bass, catfish or sunfish. Maybe fishing isn't your thing at all. No worries! This section of the river is great for swimming, exploring, kayaking or just generally hanging out. How about a river-side BBQ or campfire?

Tract 16 at Riverside At The Niangua is fully surveyed and is 10.03 acres in size.

In the aerial photo above we are looking south at the Niangua River with the property on the left and Barclay Conservation Area on the right. This 10.03 acre tract features approximately 248 FEET OF DIRECT FRONTAGE on the Niangua River along its west side. Amazing frontage giving you plenty of space for shoring your canoes or kayaks, fishing for trout, bass and other fish or setting up a few tents or beach chairs for the family and friends.

In the aerial photo above we are looking down on the river, with the property on the right. The truck is parked in a grassy area adjacent to the river on the property.

As the property was logged within the last couple of years, it could use a few days worth of "clean-up". There are some tree limbs and brush scattered around which could be clean up, burned, removed or just left where they are. 

We estimate that with a skidloader or a tractor the clean-up would take about a week. The easement road which leads to the lower field is drivable in a truck or an suv but we are in the process of improving the roadway. As we have a large number of projects right have we have decided to REDUCE the purchase price by $30,000 because of the clean-up needed and the work we are doing on the easement roads.

If we do the clean-up and once we finish grading the easement roads, the price on this tract will be $119,500. It is VERY RARE for a tract on this section of the Niagua River to come on the market. River-front acreage (if you can find it) has been and will continue to be one of the very best land investments that you can make.

If you are interested in building some great "sweat equity" on this property, consider cleaning up some of the brush/limbs, which could increase the value dramatically. The brush/limbs will also give you an excellent source of free firewood for those river-side bonfires or for a nice campfire to cook your fish!

The $30,000 price reduction brings the sales price on this 10 acre tract down to $89,500. With $500 down the monthly payments will be $965. 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 $855 a month. With $2,500 down the interest rate drops to 6 3/4% and the payment drops to $795 a month. With $5,000 down the interest rate drops to 5 3/4% and the payment drops to $725 a month. These payments are all based on about a 15 year payment schedule. Property taxes & maintenance fees (for the easement roads) will only be about $280 a year and this is already included in the monthly payment amounts. 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!

The aerial map above shows how the property is situated. This property is fully surveyed and it is 10.03 acres in size. It borders Marigold Drive along its east side (for about 350 feet) and it borders the Niangua River along its west side for about 248 feet. The yellow lines on the map above are road easements which are helpful in accessing various parts of the property. The dotted line on the map is the power line which you will find just a few feet from the meadow at the property. The property is the highest on the east side by Marigold Drive and it slopes down as you move westerly, toward the river.

In addition to the direct road frontage on Marigold Drive, there are other road easements which give you access to different parts of the property (shown in yellow on the maps). The main easement road goes down the hill (to the west) and then goes south, leading across the east edge of the beautiful meadow. This gives you good access with a truck or suv down to the gorgeous meadow area which could potentially be a prime building/camping site. Please see the various maps in the listing (as well as the videos) to see the road easements which give you access to several parts of this acreage.

Although portions of this property were logged within the last 1-2 years there is still mature timber including white oak, red oak, hickory and cedar. Please note that the timber may not be cut or sold until the property has been paid for in full (exceptions can be made for creating trails/building sites).

The gentleman in the aerial photo above is fishing for trout, just a few hundred feet from the property.

There are numerous areas on the property that would be suitable for building, camping or hunting. 

Check out the interactive map below!

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!

Also, 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 does a good job of showing how the property is situated. 

The topo map above shows how the land "lays". Each line indicates an elevation change of 20 feet so when the lines are close the land is sloped and when the lines are far apart the land is flat (or nearly flat). The property is the highest on the east side (by Marigold Drive) and it slopes down as you head west toward the river. Although you could potentially clear/install a road or trail going from the east side all the way to the west end, it is probably much easier to use the road easements (yellow lines on the topo map) which give you access to different parts of the property. Marigold Drive is a public road but the road easements themselves are private road easements for property owners only, not for the public. If you look toward the west (left) side of the property on the map above you will see that there is a small valley area near the west end of the property which leads into the Niangua River. This would generally be a dry creek bed but it does sometimes flows and it has a beautiful rock bottom.

We have been told the the trout fishing in this specific section fo the river is excellent because the Barclay Spring empties into the river just a few hundred feet past the property. You can see the Barclay Spring toward the bottom of the topo map above. The trout love the cold water from the Barclay Spring so they tend to hang out near the property.

 

In the aerial photo above we are over the Barclay Conservation Area and we are looking easterly at the property. This photo was taken on a Saturday afternoon in the summer time and you can see the floaters enjoying the river. 

This property is private and secluded with an amazing amount of wildlife. On the property you can expect to find whitetail deer as well as wild turkey. This area has a proven track record for both deer and turkey hunting. In the river you can expect to find trout, bass and many other types of fish. Although this tract is very private it is only about 20 miles from Lebanon, Missouri which is the largest regional city in the area.

The map above shows the route to the property from Bennett Springs State Park. Bennett Springs has the large fish hatchery where the rainbow trout and brown trout are raised. They are released into the river from there and they populate a 12 mile stretch of the river which includes the riverfront on this property!

Excellent location, about 1 1/2 hours to Springfield, MO and just a little farther to Branson, MO. Also only about 2 1/2 hours to Kansas City and about the same to St. Louis.

If you would like a nearby address for your G.P.S. you can enter: 30500 Marigold Drive, Lebanon, MO 65536. This address should get you very close to the property BUT please do print out the maps and directions from this listing as it can certainly be confusing on your first trip.

DIRECTIONS: From Lebanon, Missouri go west on Highway 64 for about 10 miles to Bennett Springs State Park. You will come down a long hill as you approach the Niangua River. At the bottom of the hill you will go right (north) onto Marigold Drive. If you cross the Niangua River while you are on Highway 64 then you west just a few hundred feet too far. Once on Marigold Drive, proceed northerly for about 6 1/2 miles until you get to the property on the left side (west side) of the road. While you are on Marigold Drive you will come across a couple of "Y's" in the road. Just veer left at the "Y's". Printing the maps will help.

Once you get to the property feel free to walk all around and explore. Also, you can bring your four wheeler or side-by-side if you would like. If you are in a truck or an suv you can take the easement road down toward the "Lower Field" and toward the river. PLEASE NOTE that if it has been raining, the lower field will likely be very soft and you could easily sink in if you drive off of the easement road. Our guys are working on improving the roads easements but the weather has not been cooperating with us (they are making progress, though).

Please let us know when you plan to make a trip to the property as there is a gate across the start of the easement road. You will need the combo for the lock.

 

The aerial map above shows the property and FEMA Flood Zone. When you build your home or cabin, you will definitely want to stay out of the flood zone. One of the things that makes this tract very special is that the vast majority of the property is out of the flood zone (very rare on a river property). The reason that only a small portion of the property is within the flood zone in that the Barclay Conservation Area (just across the river) has a HUGE open bottom field, and that bottom field would have to completely fill with water before the water level could raise onto the majority of the property.

This 10+ acre riverfront tract represents an excellent opportunity for building your own home or cabin as there are no building permits required in this area! You and your friends/family can build your own cabin without permits or inspections (minimum 600 square foot concrete foundation and all other property do apply).

You can actually build up to two residences on the property. The additional residence could be used as a rental to offset or completely pay for your mortgage payment. Monthly or weekly rentals with access to the river would be very popular.

In the aerial photo above we are looking easterly over the property.

This large tract is not only versatile for all sorts of uses but it is in an incredible location for enjoying it all year round. This section of the Niangua River is easily one of the most popular sections of river in the entire state!

In the photo above we are parked right next to the Niangua River. This section of land is about 10-15 feet above the river but as you move northerly on the property you can actually walk right to the river.

The Barclay Conservation Area is directly across the river from the property. The Conservation Area is several hundred acres of land which you can use and enjoy and it includes an excellent access point to the river. Put your canoe or kayak into the river at the Conservation Area and you can float directly down-river to your private acreage!

The map above shows the property itself, Bennett Springs State Park (where the trout are raised and released) and the trout fishing section of the Niangua River. The trout fishing section of the Niangua River is shown as the white & black dashed line which DIRECTLY borders the property. The red outline which indicates the property should actually be shown a little farther south as this property is DIRECTLY across from the Barclay Conservation Area.

Do not wait on this one! It is VERY RARE to find a tract with direct river frontage of any kind in the Missouri Ozarks. It is EVEN MORE RARE to find a tract upon which you can fish for trout, as well as swim, float, kayak and camp!

Your family will love you and your friends, family and neighbors will be very jealous BUT with 10.03 acres and over 248 feet of river frontage you can invite them along for the weekend too...
