A local artist hand painted the interior. The THEATER Room a replicating an old movie theater all hand painted by the artist to look like brick showing through the plaster. This room features a state of the art home entertainment system with four 1.5TB hard drives delivering beautiful pictures and sounds. A separate children's home theater system is located on the third floor. 76 handmade solid doors along with the cypress trim and facings were manufactured in the 3,200 sq. ft shop has centraheat and air, a sawdust exhaust system, a full bath, and also is where almost all the wood was kiln dried cut, and stained. The outside walls on all four floors and the floors themselves are cement with the walls having 2 1/2" insulation on the inside and out for extreme insulation. The heat and air systems are states of the art. Three wells 300' furnish the ground source heat pump system that divides the home into 12 heating zones, each one with its own thermostat. The 1300 sq. ft guest house has 2 dry stacked fireplaces, one inside and one outside for gatherings. The beautiful cabinets in this full kitchen were made from an antique corn crib. Above the 3 car garage is an 899 sq. ft apartment. This land borders Warm Fork River for about 2,800 ft. All this and more is located on 235 acres with highway & river frontage along with several springs. For privacy with luxury, you won't find a more beautiful and relaxing setting for a home with all the amenities included with this property.

Location Located in the sparsely populated rolling hills of the southern Missouri Ozark's in Thayer, Missouri Oregon County. A private winding 3/4-mile driveway from the residence leads to the nearest paved public highway. An electronic gate located there restricts access to the property. Property is located 2 hours from Springfield, Missouri, 2.5 hours from Branson, Missouri, 3 Hours from Memphis, TN, 3 hours from Little Rock, Arkansas & 4 hours from St. Louis, Missouri. Nearby Airport include Springfield, Missouri (SGF) Branson, Missouri (BKG) Memphis, Tennesse (MEM) Little Rock, Arkansas (LIT) St. Louis, Missouri (STL) Land Right on the edge of Thayer, Missouri is 235 mostly wooded acres that give this luxury Ozarks Mansion the perfect private setting that would be expected. The property has 2,800 feet of Warm Fork River frontage along with several springs throughout the property this makes for great camping opportunity and hunting several species that include but are not limited to: Deer, turkey, rabbit, squirrel, woodcock, mourning doves, ducks, raccoon, bobcat, fox, and coyote. This property would be great for horses with fencing & trails throughout the 235 acres. Water- Three 300 ft water wells provide water to the residence. Each is equipped with a commercial-grade pump and oversized storage tank. They also provide water for the ground-source heating and air conditioning heat pumps that heat and cools the residence and workshop The land has 2,800 feet of river frontage along with several springs & a large stocked pond. Outbuildings In addition to the living quarters, the compound contains a modern architect-designed 3,200 square-foot workshop. This workshop, nicer than many homes, has tall ceilings, foam insulation, a full bath with laundry hookups, and central heat and AC. Behind the workshop is a 1,024 square foot shed for equipment storage, work projects, etc. Additionally, there is a 320 square foot well-insulated building behind the workshop, originally used as a dry-kiln for lumber. All the millwork within the house was made on-site by local skilled craftsmen. The workshop and dry-kiln were used to manufacture all the cabinetry, moldings, and millwork in the main house. Additional Information While many visitors are captivated by the elegant tasteful design and beauty of the structure, there is a stealth-like underlying design that is often overlooked by many. The exterior walls of the house are solid, poured concrete, extensively reinforced with steel rebar. To contain the concrete, energy-efficient ICF (Insulated Concrete Forms) were used. The heat & AC system uses ground source pumps designed by Water Furnace. The fireplaces have airtight glass doors to prevent heat escape, and sprayed-in foam was used throughout for insulation.The estate sits discretely off the beaten path and is gated with coded entry gates. Still, it is not so far out of the way as to make access to shopping difficult. Deer, turkey, and other wildlife roam the acreage and call it home. Access to high-speed internet is available and distributed throughout the housing. Nearby Activities Spring River Fishing: Trout and walleye fishing are rated tops, and floating between Mammoth Spring and Hardy is excellent for beginning and intermediate canoeists. Many areas of the upper Spring River are popular with fly fishermen. Outfitters and launch facilities are available along the Mammoth Spring-Hardy stretch (17 miles). Spring River is unique among Arkansas trout streams; its cold water comes naturally from a spring rather than artificially from deep within a man-made lake. Every hour, Mammoth Spring releases nine million gallons of 58-degree water, and the river stays cold enough to support a good trout population for 10 miles downstream. Even though Spring River's trout water area is short, it has a lot of persity. The three-mile stretch from Mammoth Spring to Dam 3 (an old hydropower structure) is ideal for wading or fishing from the bank, except for the deep section near the dam, which provides good boat fishing. Bank fishing is limited below Dam 3, both by streamside topography and the fact that both banks of the river are privately owned. There's a small wade-fishing/bank-fishing area alongside the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission's Spring River Hatchery, but aside from this area, the best way to fish the river downstream from the dam is from a canoe. Rentals are available near the hatchery, or you can launch your own at the public ramp. The first three miles below Dam 3 provide the best action and the biggest fish. One-pound to three-pound rainbows are fairly common, although most fish are recently released stockers. Brown trout provide a trophy-trout facet to the river's fishing profile. Although you'll find fish in deep-water runs, the best fishing is usually just below riffles and falls. The Spring is hard to beat for stream walleye fishing. Some sampling surveys in recent years revealed more walleye than trout in the Spring River. Between Mammoth Spring and Hardy, try jigs in the foamy water below shoals and waterfalls. Farther downstream from Myatt Creek to the river's mouth, walleye are scarcer but bigger, with several 12- to 15-pound fish caught in recent years. Boulders and riffle areas are the best spots for catching stream walleye Eleven Point Scenic River The Eleven Point National Scenic River was established in 1968 as a 44-mile scenic river, free of impoundments with a largely undeveloped shoreline and watershed. This portion of the river between Thomasville, Missouri and the Highway 142 bridge is near Gatewood, Missouri. It became one of the 8 initial units of the National Wild and Scenic River system in 1968. The Eleven Point River meanders through the picturesque Ozark hills of southern Missouri. Its course is cut in the shadows of steep bluffs, through sloping forested valleys, and low lying riparian ecosystems. Barely more than a small stream at its upper reaches near Thomasville, it gains considerable width and depth as its proceeds south-eastward. Springs pouring from dolomite bluffs or rushing up from a vast network of underground flow systems provide a continuous source of water and beauty. Alternating stretches of rapids and deep clear pools wind around moss-covered boulders and shading bottomland hardwood trees. Mark Twain National Forest Mark Twain National Forest has a wide range of popular recreation opportunities. The forest has over 750 miles of trails for hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, and motorized use. Sections of the Ozark Trail wind through the forest. More than 350 miles of perennial streams, suitable for floating canoeing and kayaking, meander through its canopied expanses. Our campgrounds offer visitors a variety of forest experiences, including semi-primitive and wilderness camping for solitude. The Mark Twain National Forest has 1.4 million acres of land open to public hunting. There are no hunting fees charged by the U.S. Forest Service to hunt on the Mark Twain National Forest. Hunted species include but are not limited to the following: Deer, turkey, rabbit, squirrel, woodcock, mourning doves, ducks, raccoon, bobcat, fox, and coyote.
