Welcome to Ava, MO, in the heart of Douglas County. Take a stroll down Highway 14 East until you reach P HWY. Go down P HWY for 1.6 miles, and the property will be on the left.
Approximately 13 acres that are mainly wooded have a wet-weather creek, a spring, electricity available, and highway frontage. You can find the clearing on the north side of the property. A line of trees along the highway provides a natural privacy barrier for the clearing. There is a water runoff that can be found on the north side of the clearing.
There is also a spring and wet-weather creek on the southeast corner of the property. There is a trail on the southwest corner that will lead you to the southeast side of the property.
This property has a few acres on the north and northeast side that is mainly level. As you get about 1/4 of the way into the property, it gradually slopes to the south from all sides. This does provide an opportunity for a catchment system, as there is potential to collect the water runoff from the rain.
If you are looking for woods, here they are. There is a ton of young hardwoods that are really starting to show their potential. I did spot several blooming Dogwood trees as well.
You will see that there is an easement road that goes along the west side of the property. This is for your use, as well as the farmer that owns the property to the south. Only cows, bulls, and calves reside here and are the only neighbors for at least a half-mile.
This is the perfect little property to make a family campground or just a weekend getaway for anybody that loves the outdoors.
The northeast corner and southwest corner are marked with pink/blue ribbons.
Ava, MO, is about 20 miles away from this property. Here is where you will find all your amenities to survive day-to-day. For all you homesteading people, during the spring/summer months, there is a farmer's market that takes place on the square every Saturday morning. Super Wal-Mart, Family Dollar, Dollar General, Town and County Supermarket, retail shopping, hardware store, and feed store can be found in this small rural town. The first week in June and September, Ava is invaded by people that love horses. The Missouri Foxtrotting Horse Breed Association calls Ava home and is located on North HWY 5, about one mile from town.
Rippee Conservation Area is approximately 500 acres of the Mark Twain National Forest and can be found 7.9 miles from the property. The turn-off for the Rippee Public Access is 4 miles down East HWY 14 from the property. This is one of the local favorite campgrounds and watering holes. The stunning Bryant Creek flows through here and has some of the most breathtaking scenery around. Check out the enormous bluffs hanging over the river, as well as treasures that have been washed up. This public access has a day-use area, several camping sites, public restrooms, and a spot to put your canoe in.
