An energy-efficient, storm-proof home and surrounding land near Savannah, Mo., present an opportunity for someone to live in a large, luxurious home surrounded by 194 productive acres that includes lush farmland and fruit trees, and is practically self-sustaining.
This property is being offered in two parcels: five acres that include the 5,700-square-foot home and 190 acres, more or less, of farmland. The third option is the home with the entire 194 acres.
“This estate home is beyond compare,” said Dirk Talley, owner and broker of Show-Me Real Estate. “The home situated on five acres is what dreams are made of. From the ICF construction through every detail, including an exercise center, three-floor elevator, attached green house and roof complete with lightning rods, no detail is missed.”
The brick home was built with insulated concrete forms (ICF). The forms hold poured concrete that become the walls and provide a high level of insulation. Since the forms are tied together, the whole house becomes a storm shelter that withstands ultra-high winds. The house has a heat recovery ventilation system that moves stale air out and fresh air in.
The construction method isn’t all that makes this home special. It has three floors of finished space with a main-floor master bedroom. Built-in bookcases surround the electric fireplace in the living room. The dining room has a butler’s pantry with a sink and custom cabinets. The large eat-in kitchen features a custom island with electrical outlets, custom back-lit cabinets, a built-in hutch, and built-in oven and glass cook-top.
Even the laundry room has custom cabinets and a bench. This room also has a boot sink with water hose and two electric burners that are used for canning. A sunroom and half-bath also are found on the main floor.
The master suite includes a bathroom with whirlpool tub, handicap accessible shower, custom cabinets, spacious walk-in closets, double vanities and a toilet room.
The upper level includes three additional bedrooms, a Jack-and-Jill bathroom and another full bathroom.
The finished lower level offers a craft room, an office or man-cave, recreation room with a half-bath, pool table and wood-burning fireplace. Enjoy the exercise room with an adjoining sauna. This level walks out to a patio adjacent to the greenhouse.
The house also has a three-car attached garage, a central vacuum system on all three floors and fenced garden areas. It can be purchased for $949,000.
The 190 acres, more or less, surrounding the home, listed at $1.039 million, include two spring-fed stocked ponds, and one catch pond. Buildings on the farm property include a potting shed, chicken coop, small garage, metal garage, an older wood barn and a metal barn with a cement floor. Numerous wildlife reside on the property, including deer, quail and turkey.
In addition to cropland, the acreage includes a variety of fruit and nut trees: walnut, Missouri pecan, cherry, apple, peach and mulberry. Other trees on the property are oak, maple, pine, locust, birch and hedge.
A variety of berries are planted on this acreage: gogiberries, sea berries, blueberries, currants, strawberries, Nanking bush cherries and black raspberries. The land also has asparagus and rhubarb patches, as well as 12 concord grape vines.
To reach the property, take Interstate 29 to Exit 50, turn north on U.S. 169 to Avenue City, then north on D Highway approximately two miles to the gated entrance on the west side of D Highway.
