The gated entry to this lavish resort estate opens to a beautifully contoured landscape of trees, manicured lawns, waterfalls, and a private 33-acre spring-fed lake dotted with trumpeter swans, ducks, and geese with majestic bald eagles soaring above. Heading down the secluded paved lane leading to the property gives a feeling of accomplishment & adventure awaiting you down the drive. The gently winding driveway traverses a stone bridge to reveal a gracefully designed 13000 sqft home of unsurpassed quality construction and unmatched interior amenities.
In the same family for generations, this natural oasis has transformed from a working family farm to a recreational haven. The main residence —completed in 2008 — includes 5 large bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. A state-of-the-art indoor swimming pool & hot tub (the perfect excuse for year-round pool-parties), elevator, custom cabinets, and Native Missouri-Oak hardwood floors are just a sampling of the meticulously appointed features of this luxury resort-residence. Massive windows open vistas to the lake, verdant landscapes, waterfalls, and wildflowers. Bronze statues depicting childhood wonder — both in and out of doors — are a unifying theme surrounding the estate. The art of man & the beauty of nature marry to create a place where your worries disappear and bliss is not searched for—it finds you. Seven oversized garages offer ample space for the car aficionado, recreation vehicles, and shop space for the hobbyist. In addition to the grand luxury features, this property is a hunting & fishing mecca. Located in one of the top-ranked Missouri counties for trophy Whitetails, this magnificent resort estate is exquisite country for both hunter and fauna alike. In addition to big-game, a diversity of habitat allow ducks, geese, pheasant, quail, turkey, and swans and eagles to thrive, making this an avian paradise. Located in a waterfowl migration flyway, adjacent wetlands areas and dedicated food plots have been developed to enhance game production. For the fisherman, the breathtaking 33-acre spring-fed lake has been stocked with largemouth bass, bluegills, crappie, and walleye. Fruit trees, hay, and soybean fields contribute to the sustainment and income of this well-managed property. This spectacular retreat is conveniently located in the heartland of America; only 2 hours from the Kansas City area or 2.5 hours from the St. Louis area, making it an ideal playground for city dwellers looking for pastoral living or the refined ruralist. Also offered as 280 acres for $4,750,000.
