Listed for $13.5M, Missouri’s Most Expensive Home Is a Lake Lover’s Dream

Missouri Most Expensive HomeSquare One Media

A working Midwestern ranch with a huge house is Missouri’s most expensive listing, at $13.5 million.

The 13,500-square-foot house sits on 825 acres in Brumley, MO. The town is close to the Lake of the Ozarks, a water playground with about 1,150 miles of shoreline.

Blake Anderson, director of marketing for Dielmann Sotheby’s International Realty, says the address may give people a mistaken impression.

“A lot of people are just going to think that it’s in the middle of nowhere. But it’s close to all those amenities that the lake has,” he says.

The estate is about a mile from the road down a long driveway.

“You have this huge estate with so much privacy. It’s very private, very secluded, very secure, but also it’s only about 10 minutes from the lake,” Anderson says.

The house was completed in 2012, and the agent tells us that the seller spent several years building the house after assembling the property parcels.

Horse Power Ranch includes several buildings, roads, ponds, and plenty of other infrastructure.

“It’s actually a cattle farm, and it’s set up also to have horses just for recreation, but it does have a million-dollar barn,” Anderson notes.

The business operations of the cattle ranch would be part of the sale and are included in the $13.5 million purchase price, but the animals won’t convey with the sale.

The main house, with six bedrooms and 9.5 bathrooms, used Douglas fir and other high-end materials, and the listing agent says it was meticulously designed and built.

“What really stood out to me when I toured the property was the fact that every little detail was really truly considered,” Anderson explains. “It’s not like there’s just a facade of logs. The actual building is constructed of Douglas fir logs.”

The house has no end of space, but it retains a cozy feel, thanks to the rustic materials used.

“The home is massive. It feels like a home, but it also kind of feels like a resort or a hotel,” Anderson says.

The hallway and the general ambiance is open and spacious, he points out, and the materials convey a feeling of warmth.

“Especially during these times where people are cooped up in their homes, it would be pretty hard to feel cramped inside this place,” he says.

The round kitchen is a focal point of the house and is centered in the living space.

“It’s basically completely open to the main living spaces, whether that be the living room, dining room, entertainment areas, or sitting areas,” Anderson explains. “You really get a 360-degree view of that core piece of the home, which is truly beautiful. And you’ve got beautiful panoramic views of the lake and the landscape in the background.”

In the kitchen, the cabinets are walnut, the countertops granite, and the appliances are all commercial-grade. There are two refrigerators, wine coolers, and plenty of pantry space.

The master bedroom sits in its own wing.

“It’s kind of private and has its own entrance and exit to the patios,” Anderson says.

It also has a large closet and attached sitting room with a fireplace.

“You can just stay in that part of the house, and you could have everything that you need without having to even go to the main part of the house,” Anderson says.

The outdoor space is huge, wrapping around the entire backside of the mansion.

“The outdoor area is one of the most lavish outdoor areas I’ve seen in Missouri,” Anderson says. “When you’re entertaining, you can really have a large group here.”

There are many couches, fire pits, and TVs. The pool has an infinity edge with several covered areas, as well as a swim-up bar and waterfall.

Lake

The private, 10-acre lake is stocked with fish and has a covered dock with a swimming deck. There’s also a sand volleyball court and several cooking areas.

Anderson says the property is great as a single-family home and working ranch, but could also work well as a corporate retreat. He wants people to know all that the Lake of the Ozarks area has to offer.

“We have some beautiful homes, we have beautiful architecture, we love nature, we have kind of everything that you can ask for,” he says. “If you were to purchase a property that was like this in any other part of the country, you’d be paying quite a lot more for it.”

Wild on the Waterfront: This Custom-Built Florida Mansion Is So Totally ’80s

Florida waterfrontRafal Wazio/ Cary John Photography

A custom-built waterfront house with serious “Miami Vice” vibes is on the market for $3.2 million.

Built in 1986, this throwback house on Belle Isle Avenue in Belleair Beach, FL, is on the Intracoastal Waterway. Located near the warm waters of the Gulf, it sits on a key just outside the city of Clearwater.

“From the exterior, it’s an architecturally stunning home, because it doesn’t conform to anything in today’s easy, breezy, coastal, aesthetic demands. It’s quite the opposite of that,” says the listing agent, Rafal Wazio.

No gray walls, quartz countertops, and vinyl plank flooring here. Instead, you have an 1980s masterpiece with oodles of color, recessed and neon lighting, and bold geometric shapes.

“It’s a completely architecturally stunning home from the outside and from the inside. You know, it just wasn’t built as a McMansion,” Wazio says.

The colorful residence measures 5,579 square feet but has only three bedrooms—and the agent is well aware of the unique floor plan.

“There aren’t too many 5,500-square-foot, three bedroom homes. This one is designed as an en suite, so each bedroom comes with its own bathroom, its own closet, and beautiful open water view,” he explains. “It’s designed for the lifestyle of the owners.”

Each of the bedrooms comes with a not-so-modest feature: An open-air bathtub occupies the same space as the sleeping quarters.

Wazio compares the look to the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas or the Parker resort in Palm Springs.

“The bathrooms themselves are separate, but the tubs are all within the bedrooms,” he notes.

The master bedroom features elaborate glass doors and a statement mirrored ceiling, with a black jetted bathtub near the entry doors. An all-black bathroom with a number of accent lights and pops of gold is a private retreat.

The main living space is two stories high, with plenty of chrome and a wall of windows. The bedroom entrances are on a balcony overlooking the space. A game room is located off the central space.

Several interested parties have toured the property and some have put in bids. Wazio says. Most of the visitors say they would keep it as it is, he says, with only one advocating for a complete overhaul.

The outdoor space is ideal for the Sunshine State lifestyle, with a pool, dock, and terraces on multiple levels.

“It’s an entertainer’s home—and it’s unapologetically an entertainer’s home. That’s probably one of the coolest features,” says Wazio.

The entertaining deck atop the home has 2,300 square feet of party space, with easy access to the home’s multiple levels via a glass elevator.

Quite apart from the sheer amount of space for throwing a bash, it’s the breadth of the vistas that attract attention.

“It’s incredible,” Wazio says. “You basically have four different views from four different directions from up there. You can look east, west, north, south.”

Pool

On the ground level, a patio area offers a gorgeous spot to take a dip.

“The pool and spa are stunning with unique tile accents, using the same tiles the designers of the Versace pool in South Beach used,” Wazio says.

The home also boasts a dock out back, making it easy for the owners to navigate the short distance to the Gulf of Mexico.

The sellers designed and built the home and are planning to move out of the area. They’re waiting for the perfect buyer to come along in an area that is not known for its flamboyance.

“It’s an architecturally cool beyond words home. It’s probably going to end up selling to an entertainer,” Wazio says. “If we were in Miami, Vegas, or L.A., this would already have been a done deal.”
