Welcome to Your Own Private Lake. Located roughly 15 minutes south of Marquand, MO off Madison 316 in the Missouri Ozarks. This 208 +/- acre property is an outdoorsman paradise with a spring fed 8-acre stocked lake, a 3,000 SF off-grid home, a restored log cabin, a horse barn with stalls, storage sheds, fenced pastures, garden areas, fruit trees and over 180-Acres of timberland. Home to an abundance of small and large game, such as deer and turkey.
Enjoy the sunsets from the private dock overlooking the lake. The lake was established in the 1950S and some parts reach depths of 35 to 40 feet. The lake has excellent fishing and has been stocked several times over the years with bass, bluegill and catfish. Year-round waterfowl, beavers, otters and wintering bald eagles also call this lake home.
The front of the home overlooks the lake making the wrap around porch even more enjoyable. The house features two 2 master suites with full baths, a third bedroom with a bath, a large kitchen with granite countertops and two 2 oven/ranges, a large enclosed sunroom, an open living-dining area with lake views, a nice entryway, built-in cabinets, an outdoor wood furnace and a gun safe. The current owner installed a solar system with sufficient capacity to support the home for approximatley two-weeks with no sun perfect for those wanting off- grid living without sacrificing any amenities.
There is a restored old cabin on the property believed to be built in the late 1800S. The cabin's interior has been updated with two 2 bedrooms, one 1 bath, newer kitchen cabinets, a laundry room, refinished hardwood floors, large open loft and an outdoor wood furnace, while the exterior has intentionally gone untouched to maintain the rustic impression. The cabin is roughly 50-60 feet from the lake and has an excellent view of the water.
The property has roughly 15 acres of fenced pasture, and several additional areas that could be cleared if desired. There is a barn with 10 stables and a wash bay. There are excellent trails for riding throughout, making this a perfect equestrian property. The 180 acres of timberland offers mature hardwoods, some of which could be thinned, offering an immediate return to the buyer. There are several large garden areas irrigated from the lake and several sheds to store your tractors, equipment, and toys. This property is located in Madison County, Missouri roughly 6 miles from Highway 67 in Fredericktown, Missouri, 93 miles from St. Louis, Missouri and 55 miles from Interstate 55 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
