This is an absolutely ideal piece of land for a new homestead or an off-grid cabin. The property is located near Thornfield, Missouri; a very small town with a population of 407(as of 2016). Thornfield is a town that has thrived on cattle farming, so expect to see thousands of acres of rolling pastures from the view of your new property. The land sits higher in elevation than most of the surrounding territory. This provides plenty of outstanding views and direct sunlight, which would be perfect for a solar power setup and a sustainable garden. There is a nice creek that runs across the road off of County Road 873 which would be a suitable water source. With an estimated elevation of 987 feet. The land has subtle variations in the terrain and is gently rolling all the way back to the North-end of the property. The land would be great if used as a small farm or pasture. The bulk of the land runs almost true North to South. The property lines and corners will be clearly marked as seen in the pictures. There is an easement road off of County Road 873 that provides legal access to the property. The road runs all the way back to the national forest, which you have full access to.
The Mark Twain National Forest is spread-out all over Missouri. The picture-perfect forests provide thousands of acres of public use land that is open for hunting, foraging, fishing, hiking, and exploring. The national forest is just a short walk from this property and can be accessed by the same easement road that you will use to enter the property. Check the Missouri National Forest website for full details of all the activities, trails, camps, wildlife, and amenities provided in this area. Theodosia, Missouri is a short drive down the road and is the easiest access point for Bull Shoals Lake.
