PROPERTY: This 4.29 acre rectangular-shaped piece offers 660 feet on Timber Lane, a publicly-maintained gravel road. The south half of the tract is fairly level and is your likely building area, and then the tract starts to descend towards a wet weather creek close to the north boundary line. There site is moderately wooded with no structures, and your peace and privacy will remain in tact thanks to a very sparse neighborhood - you'll only have two other homes within 1000 feet of your property line. Power is available and runs along the road.

Lebanon, “Crossroads of the Ozarks”: Just 10 minutes from Bennett Spring State Park, this property is encompassed in natural splendor, offering the best of both worlds: it's off the beaten path, and we can guarantee that you'll be able to find all the privacy, peace, and quiet that you're looking for...but it's also located just 25 mins from Lebanon, a city of 15,000 residents and offering all the necessities and modern conveniences you could need in antique stores, dining, downtown shopping, outlet malls, and a Walmart. Load up on building supplies at Lowe's or Harbor Freight, or even travel back in time, courtesy of the Route 66 Museum. Motor sports lovers will enjoy the Lebanon I-44 Speedway, which has been sanctioned by Nascar in the past, but more natural entertainment is abundant here too, like zip lining and river running offered by the Niangua River Oasis.
This property also sits just a single hour away from Osage Beach and the Lake of the Ozarks, one of the world's largest man-made lakes and host to about 5 million visitors per year. Lake of the Ozarks was voted “Best Recreational Lake” in America by a USA Today readers' poll and, from just one glance, it's easy to see why. It's not just a beautiful body of water though - it's the Midwest's premier lake resort destination and an enormous state park, offering world-class boating, cruising, golfing, shopping, hiking, camping, and fishing, plus a wide variety of lodging, 200+ restaurants, state parks, and other recreational activities to suit any budget and taste.
One hour away in the opposite direction lies Springfield, the nearest major metropolitan city (population 462,000) and, of course, is flush with shopping, dining, nightlife, and almost every urban amenity imaginable. Children enjoy the Discovery Center of Springfield, featuring interactive exhibits on dinosaurs and human Dna, as well as train rides and the Dickerson Park Zoo, with animals from all over the world. Adults flock to outdoor concerts, fine dining, exciting nightlife, but the Wonders of Wildlife National Museum & Aquarium, opened in 2017 and now considered “America's Best Aquarium” by USA Today, is an unforgettable experience for the entire family. Don't miss Fantastic Caverns for truly unique “cavern-coasting,” or the Pythian Castle if you want to scratch a Harry Potter itch. It's also home to a minor league affiliate of one of sports most storied franchises - the St. Louis Cardinals.
From Springfield, keep driving about 45 minutes farther to the south and you'll arrive in world-famous Branson, the Entertainment Capital of the Ozarks. From outdoor fun, to amazing live entertainment, there's no shortage of great things to do. Enjoy fishing on Bull Shoals or Table Rock Lake, cruise it in style on the Showboat Branson Belle, or walk the historic downtown boardwalk along Lake Taneycomo, featuring Branson Landing - Branson's spectacular, landmark convergence of dining, shopping, and live entertainment. Families journey hundreds of miles to visit Silver Dollar City, an 1800'S-Themed amusement park that was voted “America's Top Theme Park” by a USA Today readers poll. Silver Dollar City has been around for a while, but Beyond The Lens, a techno-tainment adventure for all ages, just opened up and was voted Branson's best new attraction for 2020.
The property's somewhat central location within the state also places it within driving distance of St. Louis (about 3 hours) and Kansas City (just under 3 hours).

Whether you are a traditional fishing enthusiast or someone seeking a place to relax and refresh, Bennett Spring State Park has what you need to make every trip one to remember.
As previously mentioned, the Lake of the Ozarks is just an hour to the north but 15 minutes closer lies the crown jewel of Missouri's state park system, Ha Ha Tonka State Park. This 3600-Acre pristine wilderness is not just a geologic masterpiece, but was voted the most beautiful place in Missouri (a very impressive feat for a state renowned for its untamed majesty) and the 4th best state park in America. Explore caves, sinkholes, glades, savannas, rocky cliffs and hillsides, natural springs, and even castle ruins. There's plenty of man-made fun to be had here too though, including the region's largest outdoor waterpark and a few local wineries. When the sun drops below the horizon and you're ready for some live entertainment, head to the Ozarks Amphitheater in Camdenton, one of the coolest outdoor music venues in the entire state.
With Bennett Spring State Park and a host of campgrounds to the south and east, and Lake of the Ozarks and Ha Ha Tonka to the north, what about the west? Have no fear, travelling westward rewards you handsomely, as well. Pomme de Terre State Park is only a 40 minute drive and offers a little bit of everything. A marina and boat ramps make it easy to get in the water and fish for bass, walleye, catfish, crappie, or muskie. Two public swimming beaches make for great places to cool off or laze the day away. Two hiking trails satisfy an appetite for adventure. Approximately 240 campsites make the park ideal for multi-day getaways. It's like a miniature, more peaceful version of the Lake of the Ozarks.
