Property Description

Located in Coffey County, 1 mile north of the Flint Hills Wildlife Refuge, between Emporia and Ottawa, Kansas, this exceptional 159 acre farm holds a balance so perfect, it’s rare to find. The residence on the property consists of 2,788 square feet with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom on the main level. The open kitchen, living and dining room offer ample space to entertain. The kitchen is complete with solid oak cabinets and new stainless steel appliances. Custom cedar lined closets with built-ins in each bedroom and office. Main floor laundry just off the dining room. Full finished basement with a nice sized family room, full bathroom, office and finished potential 3rd bedroom. Unfinished storage room with sump pump. The 2 car oversized garage is complete with insulated overhead doors with openers and workshop area. Efficient, this home most definitely is, with all new windows, exterior doors, and heat and air. The home is wired for a backup generator so never worry about a power outage here. Huge front deck to enjoy the days away in the peace and quiet out of the west setting sun. 2 additional storage sheds with concrete floors and electricity on the west side of the home. The land consists of 50 acres tillable, 72 acres native prairie grassland, and 35 acres of hardwood timber. The heavy timber stand is made up of mature Burr Oaks, Black Walnuts, Ash, and Hackberry. Troublesome Creek flows throughout the property providing an excellent water source. Accessing the property is no problem as the internal road system allows one to get around the property with ease, including equipment. Well above average 5-strand perimeter and interior fencing. Grazing acres fully fenced with double swing gates throughout. There are 4 watering ponds on the property located in each of the 4 corners. With the balance and diversity, no wonder each time visiting the property I have seen Whitetails running in each direction. One of my favorite things about this property is that you can see and feel how alive it is. Wildlife galore, the sound of the running Troublesome Creek, fertile high-yielding fields, thick Bluestem grass waving in the Kansas wind, and watching the sunset over the rolling manicured hay meadows. Proven hunting history shows to this day that this farm holds Whitetail, turkey, and quail year-round. Outdoorsmen will enjoy the accessibility of over 18,000 additional acres of the Flint Hills Wildlife Refuge within 1 mile of the property, talk about expanding your recreation. The thought and care that went into creating this property was from the heart of a true outdoorsman with a passion for agriculture and wildlife, making this exceptionally balanced farm a rare find and one to tour in person!
