Only a couple of hours south of St. Louis and bordered on two sides by the woodlands of Missouri’s Mark Twain National Retreat, 183-acre Barney Creek Lodge would make an ideal family compound or executive estate.
This privately gated retreat has perimeter fencing throughout and a healthy mix of woods and prime pastureland that deer, turkey plus a resident mountain lion call home. Water sources include a half-dozen live springs plus its namesake creek running its length and 2.5-acre stocked pond fronting the main home.
Framed by a wraparound porch overlooking the rolling landscape, the 7,500-square-foot home features luxury appointments like in-floor heating, custom kitchen and room-to-room intercom system. Other property highlights include a small orchard, chicken coop plus private helicopter pad.
