Rich Fountain house description

A peaceful country retreat nestled on top of Paradise Bluff overlooking the cool spring fed Gasconade River. Relax out back on the large deck shaded by mighty white oaks and towering hickory trees, while you enjoy watching the deer and turkey along with other wildlife venture by plus, the presence of a pair of Bald Eagles nesting in the area is a beautiful sight!

Your new found hide-a-way is located on sixteen and a half private acres in Osage County, just two hours West of St Louis and three hours East of Kansas City. Located just South of Linn on Hwy 89.

In your new guest home you will find a fully equipped kitchen with a laundry room, pantry, dining room and living room all adjoining. The living room features a fully reclining Ashley leather sofa & loveseat, satellite TV and a large fireplace for cold winter nights in Missouri. The master bedroom accommodates well with a king size bed along with a beautifully handcrafted antique walnut bedroom set, a master bathroom, two walk-in closets, Lane rocker recliner and a walk out door onto the large deck over looking the free flowing river. The second bedroom is fully furnished with a queen bed, dresser & mirror, walk in closet, and conveniently located next to the main bathroom.

The lower level is a studio setting with a full bath, two queen beds, queen sleeper, dining room set, bar and other beds to accommodate guests along with a walk out door to the covered patio.

The spring fed, free flowing Gasconade River is a floaters paradise, as you may only see a few other people floating on just about any week day in the summer. If cycling is one of your favorite outdoor activities you can access the Katy Trail at either Herman or Jefferson City.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: We own and operate a successful furniture business in the town of Loose Creek, Mo. (suburb of Jefferson City) We enjoy our time at our slice of heaven after searching for over 16 years for the perfect place. Our home is everything we were looking for and a whole lot more so we decided to name it Paradise Bluff as it is located on top of a bluff!

                      Why the Owner Chose Rich Fountain:
                      Prior to purchasing our guest home, we searched for 16 years looking for a location that overlooked the Gasconade River and had auto access close to the waters edge. Five years prior to purchacing our home we rented a rustic log cabin up stream from our current location. Our guest home is only 20 minuets away and with our work we don't know when we can be away until the night before. We always enjoyed boating, camping and fishing on the river so we started looking for the perfect hide-a-way along the river.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We are in the furniture business so we have good quality furniture and bedding throughout our home. Our philosophy is work hard, play hard and to acheive this, you need good furnishings to rest and relax well! We love to cook outdoors so we have a propane gas grill, Weber charcoal grill, a large brick bbq pit, and a bbq trailer that will cook 5 hams at one time. Our home is remote and quiet but close enough to civilization. We do have neighbors but their homes can not be seen from our home. You can launch a boat one mile up stream at the Rollins Ferry conservation access or you can launch a canoe at our property and float for 8 miles down stream to the Pointers Creek conservation access. When we are at our home we like to take the boat out and motor up streem and grill dinner. Our dinner usually consists of a steak with boiled shrimp along with other goodies. We then relax and enjoy a leisurley float down stream at dusk as the sun sets over the silver grey limestone bluffs along the way back to Paradise Bluff.
