It’s an opportunity truly unparalleled in St. Louis County, where you can get 24 ACRES of natural wonderland + a huge 1959 ranch house, a 3-acre stocked lake and a sweeping view of the Missouri River!

Like the acreage but not the area? Here’s another fun option, a bit further out…. 21 acres bordering Calico Creek + an adorable stone bungalow built from rocks gathered from the creek in 1930! This property also has a pond, two small springs & an artesian well, not to mention several outbuildings and unique geological features.
