PROPERTY: Choose from 3 different 5 acre parcels, all adjacent to each other and comprising just over 15 acres total. You’ll be nestled in the rolling heart of Ozark Country and inside the The Highlands at Saddlebrooke — a very exclusive neighborhood dotted with beautiful homes. If you’d like to buy the whole 15 acres and realize about $10K in additional savings over our already hugely discounted per-parcel price, you can do that too! Each 5 acre tract features about 300 feet of road frontage on Vista Lane, which runs along a crest, so this is a perfect spot for a home with a walkout basement. There are no structures on site and power is available. This setup affords you all the serenity you could ever want, natural beauty, and quick access to the bright lights of Branson. You can finally have your cake and eat it too!
Buy 5 acres for $28,900, or the whole 15 acres for $79,800 and reap huge savings! All the comps listed below are in the same HOA, and one is even on the same street!
The nearest basic services are 10 minutes away in Spokane, where you’ll find a small grocery store, Post Office, and Spokane High and Middle Schools. Even closer — in fact, just around the corner — step out to see exotic wildlife in captivity at the National Tiger Sanctuary, or see some wildlife in the actual wild at Busiek State Forest just 15 minutes to the north. The Branson area has numerous hiking trails, but Busiek is one of the few areas that allows overnight camping. The two trail systems extend more than 18 miles through some of the most beautiful and rugged areas of the upper Ozarks. If you’d rather sail above the trails than walk over them, however, you’re a mere 5 minutes from the Branson Zipline at Wolfe Mountain. When you’ve conquered Ozark Country and are ready for a little rest and relaxation, try the Bear Creek Wine Company only 5 minutes down the road. Basic supplies, outdoor adventure, and indoor delights are all at your fingertips here, but when you want to crank it up a couple notches . . .
. . . world-famous Branson, a resort town in southwest Missouri known as a beautiful and fun family vacation destination, is only 15 minutes away! From outdoor fun, to amazing live entertainment, there’s no shortage of great things to do. Enjoy fishing on Bull Shoals or Table Rock Lake, cruise it in style on the Showboat Branson Belle, or walk the historic downtown boardwalk along Lake Taneycomo, featuring Branson Landing — Branson’s spectacular, landmark convergence of dining, shopping, and live entertainment. Families journey hundreds of miles to visit Silver Dollar City, an 1800’s-themed amusement park that was voted “America’s Top Theme Park” by a USA Today readers poll. Silver Dollar City has been around for a while, but Beyond The Lens, a techno-tainment adventure for all ages, just opened up and was voted Branson’s best new attraction for 2020. Play a round at one of the local, Jack Nicklaus or Tiger Woods-designed golf courses, visit a local winery, fly over the Ozarks in a helicopter, soar over the lake on a zip line, race go-karts, relax at a luxurious spa, or even tour the Titanic. Family-fun museums include the Hollywood Wax Museum, which pays homage to Branson’s showbiz culture, and the Ancient Ozarks Natural History Museum. The shopping scene flourishes here too, ranging from the more elemental (three different Walmarts) to the more ornamental. If all this activity makes you hungry, then run to Dolly Parton’s Stampede for dinner, Branson’s most fun place to eat, but that’s just one of over 250 dinner & drink attractions in this town.
Don’t forget that you’re nestled firmly in Ozark Country, so a world of outdoor adventure lies at your feet, including 200+ miles of hiking trails. The most amazing natural adventure in the entire region might be the Lost Canyon Cave and Nature Trail, an unforgettable two-and-a-half mile ride in an electric cart through Lost Canyon Nature Trail that leads you to the awe-inspiring Lost Canyon Cave. The centerpiece of this four-story cave is a cascading waterfall complemented by viewing balconies on all four levels and a cave bar accessible by a mining-style elevator. You can go horseback riding at Dogwood Canyon Nature Park, one of the most serenely beautiful natural settings in the Ozarks, or try Shepherd of the Hills Adventure Park if the family wants to turn it up a notch. For a purely natural experience, head east from your property about 10 minutes to Drury Mincy Conservation Area, a pet-friendly park that offers a cave to explore. Of course, if all this hiking sounds exhausting, then experience the majesty of the Ozarks via the Branson Scenic Railway.
The icing on the cake is that no matter what floats your boat, it won’t break your bank, as Branson has been voted one of the Top 25 Best Value Cities three years in a row by Trivago.
Springfield is the nearest major metropolitan city (population 462,000), just 40 minutes away to the north and, of course, is flush with shopping, dining, nightlife, and almost every urban amenity imaginable. Children enjoy the Discovery Center of Springfield, featuring interactive exhibits on dinosaurs and human DNA, as well as train rides and the Dickerson Park Zoo, with animals from all over the world. Adults flock to outdoor concerts, fine dining, exciting nightlife, but the Wonders of Wildlife National Museum & Aquarium, opened in 2017 and now considered “America’s Best Aquarium” by USA Today, is an unforgettable experience for the entire family. Don’t miss Fantastic Caverns for truly unique “cavern-coasting,” or the Pythian Castle if you want to scratch a Harry Potter itch.
This property also sits 2 hours from the Lake of the Ozarks, one of the world’s largest man-made lakes and host to about 5 million visitors per year. Lake of the Ozarks was voted “Best Recreational Lake” in America by a USA Today readers’ poll and, from just one glance, it’s easy to see why. It’s not just a beautiful body of water though — it’s the Midwest’s premier lake resort destination and an enormous state park, offering world-class boating, cruising, golfing, shopping, hiking, camping, and fishing, plus a wide variety of lodging, 200+ restaurants, state parks, and other recreational activities to suit any budget and taste.
The Branson Airport is just a 30 minute drive from this property and is primarily serviced by Frontier Airlines.

WALKING THE PROPERTY LINES w/YOUR PHONE: We highly recommend a FREE app called BaseMap, which uses your phone’s GPS system to show you property boundary lines, and allow you to walk them in real-time. You can follow THIS LINK to see the center of the lot on BaseMap (you’ll need to have the app to open the link). Make sure to save it as an Offline Map (by hitting the big green ‘+’ button on the map, then hit ‘Go Offline’) before you head out so that you can use the app even if you lose cell service.

FOR SALE BY OWNER: We are investors, and are selling this lot For-Sale-By-Owner. You do not need to submit your offer through a real estate agent, and in our experience we close transactions more quickly and easily by having our dedicated transaction coordinator work directly with the Title Company and Buyers. We will also both save money on commission/fees by cutting out agents as the middle men. However, if you feel strongly about working with a Realtor, then you’re welcome to have them contact us on your behalf.
OWNER FINANCING: We do not offer owner-financing but you could get a loan through a bank or another lender and we’d be happy to coordinate with them.
After opening this map, you may see even more information about the area by clicking on Map Legend, then MapRight Layers.
WHY ARE YOU SELLING IT SO CHEAP? We are often asked why our properties are priced below market value, and the answer is really simple: we choose to sell to you at wholesale prices. We are investors who purchase properties at a large volume and discounted rates, and we strongly believe in passing this discount on to our buyers.
DISCLAIMER: We attempt to provide detailed, accurate and up-to-date information in our listings, in order to help our buyers to the best of our ability. However, it ultimately remains the buyer’s responsibility to perform their own due diligence and double check any details that are of significant importance to you including acreage, utilities, build-ability, and approved/allowable use-age for the property. We are happy to help however we can.
