About the Property
2200 sf, 2 living areas, screened porch, covered patio, firepit, basketball goal
Outdoor living and logging dock time is what this property is all about. The boat dock is concrete with a 12'x32' boat slip and a 12'x12' pwc slip. Shaded area for seating and a swim platform with full sun all day. There is 16' of water at the end of the dock. Below the dock is littered with crappie beds and fish habitat that we have worked on for over 7 years. It's dialed in now, so if dock fishing is your thing, there is no better spot. Crappie, bass, catfish all live, troll, and scavenge our dock. The neighbor feeds the channel cat, sunfish, and carp from his deck.
If wetting a line isn't your thing there is still plenty of fun to be had. Swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, or just floating around. The water is calm and quiet for little swimmers. The hammock on the dock is inviting. With cove protection there is little wake or wind which makes boat docking a synch, yet the Main Channel can still be seen from the dock for checking boat traffic or just watching the cruisers and go fast boats buzz by.
The lakeside of the home offers the dock, seawall walkway, trampoline, tree house, and beautiful landscaping rocks. From the dock it will be easy to watch the kids both offshore and onshore.
The property is located on the Northshore at the 2 Mile Marker. This is the closest shoreline to the St. Louis area with easy access off Highway 54. Boating on the lower mile markers (1-6) close to the Bagnell Dam has become the new best kept secret due to the development of the Gravois Arm waterfront restaurants Coconuts, Jolly Rogers, Bumps, & Jerk Shack as well as H. Toads, Shady Gators, & Lazy Gators on the 7 MM. This has cut off boat traffic near the 6 MM and opened said lower mile markers up for great boating while remaining right in the middle of all the desirable amenities the area has to offer.
The immediate area offers great boating in Birdsong Hollow Cove, a great ski cove. Village Marina and The Boathouse offer dining and first class marina. The Boathouse has indoor and outdoor seating with a heated pool and is a popular spot for locals. The marina offers boat/pwc rental, towables rental, boat launch, gas dock, gear shop, etc. Check out the website link. The restaurant/marina is within walking distance by land or limp around the corner by lake.
Osage National is the closest golf course. Being an avid hacker Osage is my favorite track. I've been a member for several years and the course has never been in better shape thanks to excellent course management.

The Lake of the Ozarks is a large reservoir created by impounding the Osage River in central Missouri. Extents of three smaller tributaries to the Osage, the Niangua River, Grand Glaize Creek and Gravois Creek, are included in the impoundment. The Lake has a surface area of 55,000 acres, over 1,150 miles of shoreline, and the main channel of the Osage Arm stretches 92 miles from end to end. The total drainage area is over 14,000 square miles. The lake was created by the construction of the 2,543 foot long Bagnell Dam by Union Electric Company of St. Louis. At the time of construction it was on e of the largest man,made lakes in the world and the largest in the United States.
Though built to provide hydroelectric power for customers of Union Electric, the lake quickly became a significant tourist destination for the midwest. There are over 70,000 homes existing along the lake, many of which are vacation homes. It has transformed into a major resort area. More than three million people visit the lake annually. The Lake of the Ozarks is unique in the fact that it is the largest man-made, non-flood control lake in the United States. The lake rarely varies in surface elevation by more than 5 feet, with normal pool elevation of 660 feet above mean sea level. Unlike many flood-control lakes constructed by the Corps of Engineers, most of the shoreline on the Lake of the Ozarks is privately owned, and the relatively stable surface elevation has created ideal conditions for private development within a few feet of the shoreline.
The primary job markets for Lake of the Ozarks areas are in the construction industry, food and beverage industry, as well as hotel/motel and water related recreational industries. During the seasonal summer months, the population swells due to seasonal residents and tourists. The demand for workers with skills in tourism-related and construction fields rises during this time. Retail sales fields, health and welfare jobs, office and clerical positions, building and construction starts, along with supporting industries. There are limited jobs in manufacturing. Peak hiring times in seasonal industries are from early spring through late fall, usually May through October.
Year Purchased: 2007
