0CR 609 C
Approximately 6.3 acres, located off of CR 609 outside of Birch Tree, MO. Located in Shannon County, this property is surrounded by National Forest and State Conservation Land. This land does border the Mark Twain National Forest and is tucked away from society.
As you come up the hill on the easement road, you will see a road that goes straight ahead. Take this road to the end. The driveway will bring you to the clearing that is located on the southern side of the property. The clearing sits higher than the rest of the property, providing views to the south and southeast. The clearing has a slight slope to the south when you get on the southern side. The Eastern side has a slight slope as well.
There is a big clearing with views to the east and south. This side of the clearing also has the perfect spot to build a cabin overlooking the valley to the southeast. If you enjoy the sunrise every morning, you will enjoy this view.
The remaining acreage is all wooded, and the terrain varies. The majority of the hardwoods are tall pine trees and oak trees. While we were on the property, we came upon deer about everywhere. The soil on this property is a little rocky, but you would have good soil once you get the rocks picked.
The electricity is available from the county road but will be costly to bring back to the parcel. This property would be best suited for solar. It does have an area where you could set up the panels to face the southern sky.
There is no water on the property, but there are many ways that you can obtain water. Drilling a well is one choice, and most wells will run you about 400-500 FT in this area. If you are looking for a cheaper way, water tanks or even a catchment system would be the way to go. There is a rural water filling station just about 11 miles away from the property. Here you can fill up to 25 gallons for just a quarter. There also are a couple of people that do haul the water for you for a fee.
If you plan to live on the land, you will need to have human waste disposal. These days there are all sorts of new ideas that are coming out. You can do a composting system, get an incinerating toilet (they work on propane, gas, diesel, and electricity), install a septic tank, or you can even do a lagoon.
Birch Tree, MO is a small rural town located about 11 miles east of Mtn. View, MO on HWY 60. 679 citizens call this place home. There is a grocery store, Dollar General, and a gas station, but you would need to go to West Plains, MO, for the city amenities.
The Mark Twain National Forest has approximately 36,000 acres and is about 5 minutes from this parcel. This is public land for anyone to enjoy. You can hunt in this area as long as you have the proper permits.
Fall is the perfect time of the year to visit this area of the state. The Ozark National Scenic Riverways has some of the best scenery around and some of the best fall foliage you can find. All this can be found within an hour of the property.
