Paradise Acres is a small subdivision located at the corner of CR 250 and CR 140, about 8 miles West of Salida. It consists of eight 3 to 4 acre lots, each with an augmented well permit available to allow horses and some outside watering. Water shares from the adjoining Missouri Park ditch may be available but are not included in the price. The area is sub-irrigated, which is good because it keeps the grass tall and green but may require special steps during home construction. The lots have been on the market for a long time partly because they were priced very high (a few were listed in June of 2001 for $144,900 each). Prices recently reduced to $89,000 for all lots.
