Why settle for an ordinary lakefront lot when you can own the whole point? This nearly 3 acre estate offers the ultimate in lake living. Whether you’re experiencing the thrill of standing on the point or the serenity of strolling the park-like grounds, it is clear that this property affords a lifestyle unmatched at the Lake of the Ozarks. The gently sloping land is partially wooded, artfully terraced and beautifully landscaped. With its private cove setting, channel views and 820 feet of shoreline, it is simply the perfect setting.



Recognized for its year-round beauty and miles of privately owned shoreline, Lake of the Ozarks is known as the Midwest’s premier lake resort destination.  It offers world-class boating, fishing, shopping, and dining opportunities.  Top notch golf courses, parks, and other recreational activities add to its universal appeal.



The trustee’s decision to sell this stunning estate at auction presents you with an extremely rare chance to own a truly unique lake property. We sold this property at auction last year and through no fault of the seller, the buyer was unexpectedly unable to close. As a result, the seller requested that we conduct a second auction.

No other property available can match the combination of location, convenience, acreage, privacy, and exclusivity of this beautiful cove-protected point setting overlooking the main channel. Whether you choose to keep the home as it is, build your dream home, or even sub-divide, this is an unprecedented “second chance” opportunity. The possibilities for this remarkable property are endless. See you at the auction!
