Ozark mountain property in Izard County, Arkansas. 


Ten acres of forest and open ground with garden area. Even a hillside to build a bunker in.  There is a small cave in the hillside.  The property is remote & surrounded by mountains. Ideal for a place of safety, community or private retreat deep in the Arkansas Ozark mountains!  Ever-running spring that can provide water to an existing home set overlooking a large creek that runs year-around.  Can be off grid but electric already there.  There is a great 2 or 3 acre garden area. Between Mountain View and Melbourne, AR. A great property for survivalists, preppers and homesteaders.  Would make a quiet, peaceful vacation get away.

Do you want peace and serenity- are you looking for an off the road place to retire, or have a recreational retreat.. or the perfect bug-out sanctuary?   If so I have the perfect spot,  ten acres surrounded by the Ozark mountains.  Plenty of wildlife, very quite,  springs, and  a large spring fed creek boarders one side of the 10 acres.


The property is 4 miles off of a black top highway and accessible  by crossing a rock bottom creek.  It lies between Mountain View Arkansas and Melbourne Arkansas, deep into the Ozark mountains. A 4 wheel vehicle is preferred, but not necessary. 


There is flat land for a garden and  water from the creek or spring to water your garden. There are trees and a hillside to build a shelter, earth home  or underground home.  There is also a unexplored cave to check out!  Electric service already on the property, if desired!

  • The spring fed creek runs the full length of the property. 

  • You have to cross it to get onto the property. 

  • The creek can be crossed any time of the year because the creek bed is a solid sheet of rock.

  • There a very nice wooded hillside on the property! 

  • It also has a rock ledge you can sit up under, and has a cave that is a little hard to get into, but it goes back quite a ways.  A rock needs to be cleared from the entrance to make it easier to get in.

  • The hillside is covered in trees. 

  • A bunker could be cut into that hill side and probably never be seen. 



  • An old house was removed from this spot.  The septic tank is old and needs to be replaced. 

  • The water source for the house was a spring. 

  • A new pump  is available for pumping spring water if requested.

  • There is a county road to the property?  It is a dirt road and is about 4 miles to the paved road (Hwy 9).

  • This property has a Melbourne mailing address which is about 12 miles away.

  • It is about 60 miles to Mountain Home, the other close by town of any size.

  • The elevation is about 700 ft. because it is in a valley in the mountains

  • The natives say the water never got out of its banks.  It is a solid rock bottom like all of the creeks around here

  • The creek is the boundary to the 10 acres.  So the grass and hillside are both on one side of the property.  We think there is a small amount of property on the other side of the creek which is in trees, and then the dirt road coming to the property.

  • We have only mowed the grass. We have no reason to bail it as we have no animals.


The 10 acres is on Sandmine Rd. and it is 4 miles away from Hwy 9.  So, if you can find Melborne on the map. and then hwy 9 and then Sandmine Rd, and then Lyons creek that is about 4 miles from hwy 9  you are in the right neighborhood.

There are no mailboxes on the entire 4 mile stretch of the road, so there doesn't seem to be a physical address you can count on. 

It is 12 miles from Melborne to the 10 acres.
It is 8 miles from Melborne to the junction of hwy 9 and SandmineRd.
It is 4 miles from why 9 to the entrance to the 10 acres.





Melbourne is a city in Izard County, Arkansas, United States. The population was 1,848 at the 2010 census. The town is the county seat of Izard County,[3] and home to the main campus of Ozarka College.
