Well-located tract not too far from Springfield, Missouri but still VERY private and rural. This acreage is located in a small Rural Development called “Cedar Gap Hollow” which is located within 3 miles of the popular “Cedar Gap Conservation Area” and only about 35 miles from Springfield, MO.
“Cedar Gap Hollow” is one of our “Homesteader Friendly Rural Developments”. This simply means that the standard Property Covenant requiring a minimum 600 square foot concrete foundation for a residence does NOT apply to the tracts at “Cedar Gap Hollow”. If you have been waiting for a property for your “tiny home” or for your “shipping container home” then you may have finally found what you are looking for!
PLEASE NOTE: “Cedar Gap Hollow” is a new Rural Development and we are currently in the process of having the easement road system smoothed out and widened. When you visit Cedar Gap Hollow please use caution and bring your four wheel drive (if possible).
The hunting and wildlife watching opportunities in this area are EXCELLENT with a large population of white-tailed deer as well as wild turkey. This property could also be suitable for building, homesteading, camping and recreation.
To get to the property from Springfield, Missouri just go east on Highway 60 from about 30 miles to the town of Seymour. Now continue heading east on Highway 60 for about 5 miles and look for the road going north off of Highway 60 which is called “Connector Road”. As a landmark, you will see Highway O going south and this is where you will go NORTH onto the “Connector Road”. Go north for about 1/8 of a mile on the “Connector Road” and then the gravel easement road will begin. Take the gravel easement road northerly to the property.
Please be sure to print out the maps/directions from this listing page when you visit the property. We will be happy to email the maps to you if you would like. Please contact us before making the trip to the property as there may be a locked cable/gate toward the start of the easement road. We will be happy to provide you with the combo for the lock.
