Property Description

GO GREEN!–With this beautiful, energy efficient, maintenance free, underground house nestled in the Ozarks of Southwest Missouri on 5.83 acres of land. Enjoy country living, yet within easy minutes of shopping, schools, churches and industry.

This is a great buy offered by owner and ! Most people are aware it cost nearly twice as much to build an underground home compared to a frame house. The original listing of this home was $250,000. It would take over $400,000 to rebuild this same home today. It's a fantastic buy at $199.000. The extra cost of an underground home is readily recuperated by low utility and nearly nonexistent maintenance bills.

This one-owner underground structure is 75' x 30' custom built by Bob Pitts and Sons Concrete Construction Company. The structure includes just over 1,500 square feet of living area, 12 ½’ x 30' garage with large walk-in storage closet, a 12 ½' x 30' shop, as well as a 11' x 31' deck. The garage and/or shop can easily be expanded to more or separate living quarters, creating 2,250 sq. ft. home, using the RV port as a garage. Lots of storage inside and out including 2 storage sheds with separate storage for riding lawnmower and a 18' x 30' RV/Boat Port. No need to spend money on a storm shelter when you can enjoy safety from storms, tornadoes and floods.

The all-electric home is enhanced with an Ozone water treatment system, air exchanger/filter and air-to-air heat pump. Ceiling fans keep air moving in this nearly air-tight home. Included is a 10,000 watt generator for emergency backup in case there is a loss of power. A chimney was included in the original construction in case someone wants to add a wood burning stove.

As one drives up the 500' concrete driveway, they are in awe of the park-like setting, as well as many shrubs, lots of flowers, and numerous varieties of trees including dogwood, red bud, hickory, oak and maple, just to name a few.

After mowing the roof, enjoy total relaxation in the beautifully decorated home including large living room, dining room, large eat-in dream kitchen, 2 baths (includes double sinks in the master bath), guest bedroom and an all-purpose room for office, utility, sewing and pantry. Custom cabinetry throughout. Appliances include smooth top range, refrigerator, dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, washer, dryer and upright freezer. Also included in sale is a Cub Cadet riding lawn tractor with a snow blade to keep driveway clear during winter snows, as well as a trailer.

We have an album showing the actual construction of this engineered home and sample of the rubber dam used between all connecting concrete to prevent leaks. It shows the rebar, insulation, water proofing and drainage as well as the concrete pours. We've never had any leaks and the heat/cool efficiency is great!

This home has had lots of TLC and in excellent condition—JUST MOVE IN!!!

Annual real estate taxes are $521. It’s a close, easy drive to corporate offices of Walmart, J. B. Hunt, Tyson Foods, and many other industries. MUST SEE!!!
