About Van Buren
If you’d like to wake up in the morning with deer in your backyard, sit out on the deck with a cup of coffee, watching the occasional canoe float down Current River, as a Rainbow Trout leaps up from the crystal clear spring fed waters, this is the place for you.
It’s a great place to retire or to have a second home at a very reasonable price. Many professionals, such as airline pilots, doctors and CEO’s, some from as far away as California, have second or retirement homes in this area.
This pristine paradise is located 150 miles from St. Louis, Missouri, 90 miles from Springfield, Missouri, and 160 miles from Branson, Missouri, the live entertainment capital of the world.
Carolyn Lawrence Real Estate Inc. is your real estate specialist for Van Buren, Missouri. Located in Van Buren for over 29 years Carolyn has excellent relationships with the present homeowners, land owners and community leaders and has just the right property for you.
Carolyn specializes in large wooded lots with river views and access. Current River is a very unique river that is crystal clear and is fed from Big Springs, the U.S.’s largest natural fresh water spring, with an average daily discharge of 276 million gallons. These river lots are also very unique, in that Current River water is very cold, averaging somewhere between 55 and 65 degrees year round. Not only does the cool water cool the lots around the river, but they also eliminate virtually all flying insects such as mosquitoes, etc.
Land is still very reasonable in this area; beautiful view lots of Current River and the surrounding valleys for less that $15,000 an acre. Real estate taxes are also very reasonable in Missouri.
It is ensured that the Van Buren area will remain wild and unspoiled because most of the area is surrounded by Mark Twain’s National Forest so it is federally protected.
If you are into floating down one of the U.S.’s most scenic river ways, with outstanding fishing, love to walk in a moss covered trail in the woods, looking at the wild deer, turkeys, raccoons, squirrels, rabbits, etc., as the beautiful fall foliage turns to a golden color, this is the place for you and all at a price you can afford!
