About 17715 Barth Avenue

The gated entry to this lavish resort estate opens to a beautifully contoured landscape of trees, manicured lawns, waterfalls, and a private 33-acre spring-fed lake dotted with trumpeter swans, ducks, and geese with majestic bald eagles soaring above. Heading down the secluded paved lane leading to the property gives a feeling of accomplishment & adventure awaiting you down the drive. The gently winding driveway traverses a stone bridge to reveal a gracefully designed 13000 sq ft home of unsurpassed quality construction and unmatched interior amenities. In the same family for generations, this 280-acre natural oasis has transformed from a working family farm to a recreational haven. The main residence — completed in 2008 — includes 5 large bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. A state-of-the-art indoor heated swimming pool & hot tub (the perfect excuse for year-round pool-parties), elevator, custom cabinets, and Native Missouri-Oak hardwood floors are just a sampling of the meticulously appointed features of this luxury resort-residence. Massive windows open vistas to the lake, verdant landscapes, waterfalls, and wildflowers. Bronze statues depicting childhood wonder — both in and out of doors — are a unifying theme surrounding the estate. The art of man & the beauty of nature marry to create a place where your worries disappear and bliss is not searched for — it finds you. Seven oversized garages offer ample space for the car aficionado, recreation vehicles, and shop space for the hobbyist. In addition to the grand luxury features, this property is a hunting & fishing mecca. Located in one of the top-ranked Missouri counties for trophy Whitetails, this magnificent resort estate is exquisite country for both hunter and fauna alike. In addition to big-game, a diversity of habitat allow ducks, geese, pheasant, quail, turkey, swans, and eagles to thrive, making this an avian paradise. Located in a waterfowl migration flyway, dedicated food plots and adjacent wetlands areas (with a 55-acre duck lake for the avid duck/goose hunter) have been developed to enhance game production. For the fisherman, the breathtaking 33-acre spring-fed lake has been stocked with largemouth bass, bluegills, crappie, and walleye. Fruit trees, hay, and soybean fields contribute to the sustainment and income of this well-managed property. Included as well is an 1800 sq ft guest house and several barns & outbuildings. This spectacular retreat is conveniently located in the heartland of — only 2 hours from the Kansas City area or 2.5 hours from the St. Louis area — making it an ideal playground for city dwellers looking for pastoral living or the refined ruralist. Property also offered as 60 acres, including residence, for $3,990,000.
