Gainesville, Missouri Country Home in the Ozarks

81 Jenkins Lane, Gainesville, MO 65655


It is very rare for a country home to come up for sale with 19.5 acres of land, let alone one that includes the main home, a nice shop building, a rental home for additional income and a separate highway frontage building site.  Finding a property like this in a beautiful Ozark County community such as Gainesville, Missouri is nearly impossible! Located at 81 Jenkins Lane, this 1,700 square foot, 2 bedroom, 2 bath, custom built brick home and 800 square foot custom built shop building are being offered for sale.  The home and shop rest at the west side of the property, with entry off of Highway 181 by a private drive.  The home rests on 15.5 acres of land on an elevated ridge that grants majestic views of the pine forest and neighboring valley to the south.  The location of this home, along with the large covered front porch and covered rear deck provide perfect views of sunrises, sunsets and amazing views of the deer, turkeys and other wildlife that come to feed on the acorns from many oak trees located on the property. The home includes many special features such as brick construction and fireplace. The owners of the property just remodeled the home with new paint, new flooring in most areas, new light fixtures and baseboards. The newly renovated kitchen embraces a rustic charm and warmth, with a dose of modern amenities. The kitchen includes a dishwasher and other appliances. This home is located at the northeast corner of the quaint community of Gainesville and is just 2 minutes from the Gainesville Memorial Airport, the Gainesville Elementary School and Gainesville High School, which are part of the Gainesville R-5 School District.
