Current River Ranch is the only horse/cattle ranch on the banks of the Current River for over 85 miles of the river! At 175.24 assessed-acres, it is also the largest private property on 85 miles of the river. It is a gorgeous and absolutely unique property completely surrounded by the National Park and other conservation entities. The charming farm house sits on a knoll in the middle of the ranch just 230 yards from the river, with spectacular views up and down the mountain-embraced valley. Over 1,450 yards of river frontage with great access to gravel bars, sand bars, and fishing holes! Relax on a porch swing while watching your cattle and horses graze in all directions on 70 acres of fertile fields, with the forested hills rising steeply in the background. Elk, deer, turkey, bear, wild horses, and bald eagles are among the diverse mix of wildlife that use this awesome property. This property qualifies owners to apply for the drawing of a Missouri-resident landowner antlered elk hunting permit. A spring branch flows through the edge of the south pasture. 6 ponds. The custom-built heavy steel-pipe corral is designed for working 40 cows or horses. It includes a center working pen, water/feeding area, sweep chute, and 12 gates designed so 1 person can separate, vaccinate, or load individuals or move the entire herd to another pasture. The National Park has a scenic easement on the ranch to permanently preserve its pastoral tranquility and protect its mature oak-dominated forest. This is truly a legacy property. Permanent structures can only be rebuilt to the size of existing buildings and for similar purposes. Great property for those who love to canoe, kayak, snorkel, fish, hunt, explore nature, or relax in a quiet forest. A lifetime of natural wonders to explore on the immense public lands nearby. Low annual taxes of just $480.41 in 2020! Eminence is just 10-miles, and Echo Bluff State Park is just 5-miles away. Heaven-on-earth is right here. Must have pre-approval letter to schedule showing.
