Can you hear the quiet? Welcome to this wonderfully cared for and updated property that is rich with history and full of beauty, history and outbuildings. The songs written about Kansas sunsets may have drawn their inspiration from the front covered porch of this property. And, you can enjoy evenings under the stars while you sit around the exterior stone fire pit that was built by German POWs following WWII. This property is full of flower gardens that feature awesome stone edging and rock enhancements, vegetable gardens and producing walnut, apple, peach and cherry trees. Color from the trees and gardens will brighten your day throughout the spring, summer and fall months. The property is surrounded by cedar trees to help provide windbreaks and there are plenty of leafy trees to provide shade, beauty and homes for squirrels and songbirds throughout the property.
The home is a four bedroom, one bath home that was originally built in 1917 and recent updates include the roof, exterior siding, HVAC, complete bathroom remodel, windows, flooring and a new septic system. The home has been well-cared for with additional amenities including a water softener and main floor laundry. One of the four upper level bedrooms is currently being used as an office and they all provide wonderful views of the Kansas countryside. The home features a very nice dining area and family room just off of the kitchen. The covered and enclosed front porch provides protection and a peaceful place to read or sit and enjoy the scenery. The woodwork throughout the home has been well cared for and only adds to the historic feel. The closets throughout this home are exceptionally large for a home of this age and basement has built-in cabinets and lots of additional clean storage.
This property has outbuildings upon outbuildings upon outbuildings! There are 7 total outbuildings and 2 grain storage silos. The big two-story barn (measuring approximately 40ft x 60ft) has a new metal roof and is ready to earn its keep for the next generation, just as it has for the previous generation. The 4 car garage is oversized and resides near the back entrance to the home. It has a concrete floor and enough additional space to handle all of your lawn and garden tools. Some of the additional buildings on the property include: Far West Building – approximately 30ft x 50ft NW Building – approximately 60ft x 20ft NE Building – approximately 60ft x 40ft Eastern Building – approximately 60ft x 40ft and is heated with a wood stove and has a great workshop built into one side.
There are SO MANY options with this property. The quiet surroundings would make a great spot for someone wanting to work remotely. It would also make a great second home, or bed and breakfast or hunting camp. The large outbuilding square footage would allow an entrepreneur the ability to rent storage space, or to easily host their own boat or toys. With the gardens and ability to have some livestock, it could make a perfect self-sustainability property. The opportunities are limited only by your imagination. Kanopolis Lake is only 32 miles away and provides a wonderful place to fish, ski, camp and hike. The property was once the home of the commander of a nearby POW camp following WWII. Much of the stone work throughout the property was produced by the POWs. You can also find date and name carvings on the barn walls.
