The Lodge

Elkhead Road, Bland , Missouri 65014 - Gasconade County
$1,750,000 1029 Acres
Property ID 3821654


Known as The Lodge because of the huge trophy elk shot on the property in the early 1900s, (and still

stored in the attic) this magnificent 1029+/- acre estate is located in southern Gasconade County about an

hour and a half from St. Louis via I-44 and near Rolla, home to the Missouri University of Science and

Technology. About 150+/- acres of this pristine property are lush pastures with several nice ponds and

meandering streams and creeks. The rest of the acreage is covered with mature hardwood stands that

shelter abundant deer and turkey. The family that owns the property has treated it as a wildlife preserve

since they acquired it in the 1920s with the result that virtually no hunting has occurred. The deer and

turkey wander into the yard of the lodge and are impossible to miss as you ride by horseback or ATV along

miles of winding, leafy trails.

Built in 1907 the lodge itself is approximately 4100+/- sq ft with 4 bedrooms/ two baths and a gracious living

room and dining room that run the length of the house. The lodge itself is architecturally distinctive as it was

designed as a shooting lodge by Dean and Dean, Chicago, IL, the architectural firm where Frank Lloyd Wright

first worked. The tall ceilings, exposed beams, plaster walls, enormous fireplace and numerous windows all

reflect the Prairie School and Adirondack Schools of architecture, which influenced Wright. The expansive

porch which wraps around 3 sides of the lodge is another unique feature and provides many spaces to dine

al fresco and watch the wildlife.

In addition to the lodge itself, there are several charming buildings, including a turn of the century

schoolhouse, a guest apartment and 2 smaller homes for family and friends, barns, a small cottage, etc. This

is a must see estate for the most discriminating buyer. It is virtually impossible to find a tract of land this size

less than two hours from a major metropolitan area. Whether your dream is to run cattle, start a shooting

club, or just enjoy the tranquility of the Ozarks, this one of a kind property is perfect. Elkhead Lodge is priced

at $2,900,00.
