Land Description

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.
