Here's another auction I will be going to. From Alton, MO, take Hwy. 160 East, go 8 miles, turn left on Hwy. FF. go just over 3 miles. White house on left. Signs say Gary Hensley Auction. 80 acres, 1/4 mile frontage; older 4 bedroom home with large living room and dining combination. Kitchen, bath with washer and dryer hookup. Well pressure system, old barn. Land has 40 acres grass, and 40 acres timber. Property has private owned property to East and West and National Forest on the North. 3 miles from the Eleven Point River. One small pond that I saw. I drove by there this morning. The house needs a facelift: siding, new roof (just for aesthetics, I don't think it's bad) and interior paneling, new carpet or vinyl. I could not see into the kitchen or bathroom, but most that age need upgrading. Apple trees, one cherry tree, other fruit trees, but I didn't walk all the way back through the orchard area. Old cistern with wood cover that needs repair. Root cellar/storm shelter. There is a large old barn that was used within recent memory by the BB Road Volunteer Fire Department to cure the timber that they built the Fire House and Community Center out of. I can tell you that land around here goes for $800 to $1000 an acre. The ad says the owner is moving due to health and no reasonable offer will be refused. Maybe they will take a slightly unreasonable low one if there are no other bids.
