Property Description

Located just 3.5 miles east of downtown Coldwater, Kansas is an opportunity to own this gorgeous 3 bedroom, 1 bath home with a finished basement and 2 car detached garage. Built in 1915, this home was purchased by the recent owner in 2005 and expanded to include a great room that almost doubled the original size of the main level! Using reclaimed hardwood for the floors and cedar planks from rail cars for the walls and ceiling, the new addition spans the length of the house and provides for an oversized family room that flows into the dining room and kitchen area with an island. Finished in a rustic and western fashion it is a perfect fit for the area. At the far end of the family room is a rocked corner that is home to a large wood-burning stove adding that extra touch of authentic country living. The exterior construction is all rock with cedar siding in the peak areas all under a new roof that was installed 3 years ago.

The rest of the main level is comprised of 2 bedrooms, a utility/washroom, and an oversized bathroom with a separate tub and shower at each end of the room with a double vanity/sink configuration in the middle of the room. Downstairs you will find a kitchenette area setup with cabinets, sink, and spot for a full-size refrigerator. A nice long family room with a bricked area and wood-burning stove at one end. The third bedroom is also located downstairs opposite the kitchenette.

The entire 197 +/- acres is completely fenced with a nice, tight, 5-wire barbed wire fence. The north property line has brand new fencing that was recently completed. There is a small corral configuration behind the house with a windbreak for wintering and feeding livestock and a fenced 15-acre area used for catching and gathering livestock. The entire 197 acres is a blend of lush native grasses, has been well cared for and maintained being only lightly grazed at times by a few head of cattle and horses.

This home and acreage are the perfect setup for a family wanting a place in the country yet close to town. Accessible by 2 well-maintained roads a short 3 miles to town and 1 mile north to scenic Highway 160. The area is known for great quail hunting and a few plum bushes are scattered across the native grass acreage. There is a wide tree row that runs for a half-mile along the north property line and is home to whitetail deer noted by trails, rubs, and scrapes throughout.
