Come for the money laundering and murder, stay for the prime waterfront real estate.
There are a handful of Lover’s Leaps in Missouri, but only one property will be recognized by avid fans of Netflix crime drama “Ozark”. This property, nicknamed Lover’s Leap, served as the stunning location featured at the very end of Ozark’s season 1 trailer. You know, where Jason Bateman, Laura Linney and their two children gaze mysteriously into the water from atop the bluff as they think about their bad life choices.
Memorialized in endless postcards sent from the popular tourist destination over the years, Lover’s Leap is located on the west side of Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks, near the town of Linn Creek in Camdenton. The popular landmark rises about 200 feet above the water, and is part of a 24-acre property that’s now on the market for $1.3 million with Century 21 agent Wade Covington.
Composed of 4 separate parcels of land, Lover’s Leap features 2,200 feet of waterfront space, which is ideal for summer boating, swimming and socializing. Stunning panoramic views look out on the junction between the Osage and Niangua Arm, a majestic piece of midwestern beauty. Just minutes from town, the property is ideal for anyone looking to build their own lakefront oasis, or develop the property further.
If you’re unfamiliar with “Ozark”, Bateman played Marty Byrde, a Chicago finance guy and money-launderer who finds himself hiding out in Missouri at the Lake of the Ozarks with his family. And as one would expect from laundering Mexican drug cartel money, calamity ensues. However, the rural noir setting is absolutely ideal for anyone who dreams of floating down a river in a raft during the summertime. With season 4 of “Ozark” back on Netflix now, what better way to live out your vacation dreams?
