10 Acres And A Well...?
You know, when you look at as many pieces of property as I do...once in a while, one suddenly pops up that really catches your attention!
That's when I first saw this little gem. I read the description, looked at the pictures, and studied the location a number of times. The closest town is really a "village" named Climax Springs. Here is some more information from Wiki-pedia about Climax Springs.
"In 2007, businesses included a video store, a realtor office, bank, gas station, concrete company, and a building materials center. Today As you enter the small town of Climax Springs you notice that it still remains a small community with a population of 80 in City limits.in the past year the town of Climax Springs has received a new library in great condition and a new gas station next to the "friendly market"
Sounds like something out of a Norman Rockwell painting, right? But what about the property itself? This acreage is mostly pasture (pictured below) with trees (pictured) toward the West end. It lies gently rolling to level from the county road all the way to the back and is drivable over the entire tract.
A new water well (pictured below) has just been drilled on the property and according to the well driller pumps 35 gallons per minute. Since drilling NO PUMP has been installed in the well.This is a perfect tract for horses, cattle, a home or just recreation.
The pond (pictured) was built to Missouri State Conservation Department standards and is between 1.5 to 2 acres in size. It is fenced from the rest of the tract and has an automatic waterer for live stock. There is also fence along the county road and back of the property.
Just one more thing about this property. The mineral rights come with the property! That's almost unheard of now days...! Anyway, the property was up for bid starting at $25.00 for the down payment. I checked on the seller, got good reviews, and put in my bid.
To shorten the story a bit, within a few days I was outbid...big surprise! Two days later, I got an email from the seller telling me the winner had backed down, and wanted to know if I was interested. I told him yes, we came to an agreement, and I BOUGHT IT!!
I didn't want to say anything about it until I had the paper work, but I got it today...so I wanted to share the news with you!
So now, I own 10.2 acres with the mineral rights, along with a brand new well, and a 2 acre stock pond! Mostly level pasture land with gently rolling terrain and a few very large trees, fenced on the front and back.
I've said before that I'm a simple man and it doesn't take much to make me happy! This just about does it, I'd say! Sorry for the long post, but I tried for the short version...
So, my friend, let's get some fresh coffee and sit on the patio...I can bore you with my plans about the future! BTW...I still have my land in the desert. Can't have too much land, I'm thinking!
