This fantastic property is indeed a blast from the past, that takes us back to a simpler time when people lived life a little slower. The parcel is located near Greenville, Missouri, in the Lost Creek Township. It's approximately 8.5 acres with so much to offer. The land is located far outside of any city limits, out in the country on County Road 505, which is mainly just country homes and rolling pastures. The cabin is approximately 570 square feet, which is not large, but there is plenty of room to build onto it, to the North and the East. The cabin has one large living room, which is approximately 15X30 and a smaller kitchen area that is about 10X12. There is also a cozy front porch that faces County Road 505 that would be perfect for a few rocking chairs. As I said, this is an older homestead, and things were a little different back then. The well is not your typical water well; it is a jet-pump well. I will post a link below for more information on these wells. The long and short of it is that the jet-pump well forces water down to create a vacuum, which forces water back out. The pump is mounted on top of the wellhead, whereas newer wells have the pump submerged deep into the casing and the pump forces water up, which requires more maintenance. With a jet pump well, everything is right there on top where you can get to it and fix it yourself. There is also a very large concrete water cistern (see link below for more info) located on the North-East corner of the cabin in the backyard. There is also a concrete septic tank located on the East side of the cabin, near the clothesline. The cabin does need some repair work, but the foundation is strong, and the roof, as well as the lumber on the outer walls, are brand new. The electrical wiring has been removed for safety and will need to be updated.

There is also an excellent machine shop and old chicken coop near the North-West corner of the property, just a short walk away from the cabin. The machine shop has a side door as well as two large swinging doors that allow for storage of large equipment or vehicles. The machine shop also has a nice concrete floor to keep you off the dirt while you work, and several storage shelves along the walls. The chicken coop appears to be in good shape but could use a little TLC. There is an older storage shed to the East of the cabin that is in rough condition but does have a concrete foundation, so you could restore the shed or build a new one. The soil around the home and in the backyard is very rich and would be excellent for planting a lovely garden. The rest of the property is mostly wooded, meaning you could see a number of different types of wildlife in your yard. There is an electric pole on the property located near the machine shop, but the electric line has been removed for safety and can be reconnected at your desire. So, if you have been looking for a lovely property out in the country, then look no further. Give us a call at 417-469-4100 to make this property your today.
