PROPERTY: This refreshing 1.8 acre waterfront lot, nestled along the picturesque Shawanguk Kill River, offers a truly unparalleled living experience. As you step onto this moderately wooded riverfront oasis, you’ll be captivated by the serene ambiance that surrounds you.

With deeded driveway access off Burlingham Road, you can revel in the luxury of having each step you take from the end of that driveway on the way to the river be entirely yours. This is the ultimate retreat for nature enthusiasts, offering a secluded haven where tranquility takes center stage.

You’ll be able to connect your home to the power lines that run along Burlingham Road. While this property boasts utmost privacy and serenity, it also offers close proximity to major shopping centers. You truly have the best of both worlds, with easy access to all the urban amenities you desire without compromising the tranquility you seek. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to own an enchanting waterfront haven at an unbeatable Acretown price – your dream home awaits!

OWNER FINANCING: We DO offer owner-financing so if you’re interested in that route, please call, text (314-639-9777) or email ( and we’ll be happy to provide the details.

OUTSIDE FINANCING: Your best deal for financing will come from a local bank or credit union and we can help you find a great deal. Land loans typically require about 15-25% down.


Call or text Scott directly at 314.639.9777 or email at if you’d like to discuss an offer.

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.


WHY ARE YOU SELLING IT SO CHEAP? We are often asked why we price our properties at below market value, and the answer is really simple: because we can, and that’s our core business model. We are investors who purchase properties at a large volume and deeply liquidated rates, and by passing this discount on to our buyers, we can sell land quickly . . . and more of it! In fact, our average property only lasts 2-3 weeks on the market (vs. industry average of about 6 months).

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.
