This 102+/- acre tract is in unincorporated Bonne Terre, Missouri of St. Francois County with 1.4 miles of BIG RIVER FRONTAGE! This property boasts a large custom-built home with 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, a concrete gun room/storm shelter with vault door, 5 stall horse barn with tack room and living quarters, lean-to, dog kennels, and workshop. The property is equipped with 3 ponds, 2 of which are stocked, a cave along the bluffs of Big River, a camping area with boat launch, and multiple other buildings for livestock and hay storage. This property has historically been a livestock operation, but more recently been used for hay production and recreation. The possibilities are literally endless with such a unique property such as this; VRBO, winery, wedding venue, multi-family retreat, corporate retreat, or continued use as a personal agricultural, livestock, and recreational playground for generations to come.
The pastures have historically produced 275-300 4’x5’ round bales from a single cutting annually. The current tenant that harvests the hay is willing to continue the annual agreement with the new owners. This property is ideal for the equine enthusiast with endless quality pastures for grazing, multiple automatic waterers, multiple ponds, and a fully equipped barn with 5 stalls, tack room, and living quarters.
The hunting opportunities are very favorable here as well. There are multiple low water crossings for the whitetails that don’t already call this peninsula home and sign to prove it. If the turkeys don’t roost on the river's edge, they fly off the roost from the surrounding bluffs and meander in the pastures all day until they return to roost. I have living proof of the quality turkey hunting this property has to offer.
The home was built with quality and efficiency in mind. The craftsmanship and well thought materials and décor is second to none. There are full living quarters with a separate kitchen and laundry in the lower level and plenty of room for storage in the unfinished area. The home is equipped with an outdoor wood burning furnace and geothermal system which keeps the utility average under $200 a month even on a home with more than 7,000 sq. ft.!
The river access is exactly that, accessible! There is a beautifully manicured campground on the rivers edge with gorgeous rock outcroppings, surrounded by large walnut trees, sycamore trees, cottonwood trees, and even equipped with a boat launch. On the opposite side of the property there is a large sand bar that would make another perfect hang out with an adjacent swimming hole.
There is the potential to purchase 84+/- acres of the 102+/- acres that would include only the home and the peninsula with river frontage; see the aerial maps for the variation.
