4BR / 3Ba 4200ft2 house available oct 23
w/d in unit detached garage

This home is located in Theodosia, Missouri on beautiful Bull Shoals Lake, known for its boating, water sports, and fishing. The house is on a peninsula with 5 acres of private land (~50% wooded) and surrounded by an additional 25 to 30 acres (all wooded) of government land which can be accessed by adjacent land owners or the public from the lake, so it is kind of an extension of this property. This location is peaceful and remote at the end of a private road, yet it is within 3 miles of a golf course, marina, and the town of Theodosia.

The house is a ranch style with a walk-out finished basement. The exterior is nearly maintenance free with solid rock walls and aluminum clad windows, doors, soffits and gutters. The grass yard around the house has an in-ground sprinkler system. Bushes and trees complete the landscaping.

This 18-year-old house was custom built by retired executives and updated since that time. The main level is about 2600 square feet and has a modern kitchen (with granite countertops and newer stainless steel appliances), formal dining room, and very large living room. It is an open concept plan with half walls for display of art, statues, pottery, etc. Also on the main floor are 2 bedrooms (master with on-suite), 2 bathrooms, office (or 3rd bedroom), 2nd office or craft room, and laundry room. There is solid oak flooring except for the bedrooms (carpeting), the baths (tile), and the laundry room (tile). Sliding patio doors lead to a large covered deck (composite decking) that looks out to the woods and the lake.

The lower level is about 1600 square feet of finished space consisting of a bedroom, full bathroom, a wet bar with lots of shelving, fireplace in a large open recreation area, and a utility room. Other than the bedroom (carpet) the entire lower level has ceramic tile flooring. Patio doors allow walk out to a concrete patio (under the deck).

Detached from the house are two large outbuildings. The building closest to the house is a 42 foot by 50 foot garage with an extra wide 2 car garage door. The back 20 feet of the garage is a heated and cooled shop or studio with insulated walls and ceiling plus water and electricity. The exterior of the garage is part rock (to match the house) and vinyl siding. Behind the garage, out of sight from the house, is a 34 foot by 50 foot metal pole barn with concrete floor, primarily intended for "toy" storage. It has tall single and double-wide garage doors.

This upscale retreat, with low taxes ($1850 in 2013), is well maintained and is located in a private secluded location that is still conveniently located to the amenities in the area. We are asking $359,000 for the land, house, garage, & pole barn. Furnishings can be reasonably negotiated. A full up fully furnished house is a possibility.

You will love the house, seclusion, recreational opportunities, and the low-key lifestyle.
