East Central MO Farm With Springs, Creek, Pond, Caves And A Home

Description

Amazing crystal clear spring feeds both a stocked lake and creek. This is easily the most impressive spring I have seen on private property. The water flows rapidly from the base of the hillside and flows into both Lick Creek and a long concrete flume that feeds the 2 +/- acre stocked pond. This spring may have commercial potential. This property also features two caves. The larger is known as Orr Cave and has been mapped. Located just 5 miles from Cuba and an hour to St. Louis, this property is easily accessible. The farmhouse sits on a hill overlooking the valley below. There is an open area near the house that has been terraced and would be a great place for an orchard or vineyard. Wind your way through the fields and timber to the back 80 where you will find additional building and lake sites. No chemicals have been used on this land and there is potential for organic farming. Two wildlife or stock ponds and additional springs are on the back portion of the property. Run some cattle or bring your horses. Excellent fishing and hunting. Great area for outdoor enthusiasts near  Steelville and multiple rivers and creeks. Call today to schedule a private tour.
