Property Description

Mid-America Wildlife Ranch was established with the vision of being a renowned high fence, big game operation in north central Kansas. Located only 17 miles from the geographic center of the United States, the name that accompanies this beautiful ranch is very fitting. Starting with an original 6000 square feet, 4 story home, built in 1915, and undergoing a major remodel and expansion, the resulting 10,500 square foot home is something to see. From the foundation, to the metal roofs, the attention to detail in both the construction and the finish work resulted in a home anyone would be proud to own.

The trophy room or great room at the heart of the house is something spectacular. Cathedral style wood plank ceilings atop 20-foot walls, rock fireplace, wood plank trophy wall, beautiful hardwood floors, big windows letting in ample natural light, all put together perfectly making this room the perfect gathering place for any occasion.

The 9 bedrooms and 8 ½ bathrooms each having their own unique design and appeal will comfortably accommodate a large family and still have room for guests. 1 bedroom with its own attached bathroom is massive and could be setup as a bunkroom suite to accommodate a large group of guests on its own.

The master suite, located on the main floor, has a large walk-in closet with built in shelving and drawers, and an oversized bathroom with a jacuzzi tub, 5’ steam shower with chromotherapy lighting, marble topped double vanity, hand scraped bamboo wood floor, and a fireplace.

The kitchen is well equipped to handle the number of guests this house is designed to accommodate with a 48” side by side refrigerator, 48” Viking 6 burner stove with built in griddle and duel convection ovens, Viking commercial dishwasher with built in sanitizer, and 2 walk-in pantries.

For dining there is a breakfast room with a built-in coffee bar and a large formal dining room with its own fireplace, designed to put everyone around the table at once.

In addition, a number of other rooms provide for; a fitness room, a sitting/reading room, gun cleaning or project room, mud room, utility room, laundry room, a gun vault room with a direct call alarm, and a large office with built-in cabinets and quartz counter tops.

It is important to note that with the vision of hosting guest to a high fence hunting operation the owners made sure to design one bedroom, bathroom and an entry point with 36” doors for wheelchair access.

On the back of the house is a large deck with custom steel, laser-cut panels highlighting wildlife scenes and the Mid America Wildlife Ranch name built into the railing. The deck is large enough to accommodate additional guests in the event of an outdoor style gathering.

In addition to the home there is a large 1,200 square foot metal building with a concrete floor to store vehicles and tools for use on the ranch. Garage doors on both ends allow for drive-through flexibility.

Outlining the residential portion of the property is a beautiful spring fed creek, lined with trees, that has left a beautiful rock wall around the back of the property.

The home sits on 277 m/l acres of terraced rolling hills of tillable soils currently planted in hay that have produced very well the last few years. The terraces and drainage systems are all well-maintained and ready to support a dry land farming operation. In addition to rolling hills of tall prairie hay, there are timbered draws and 3 ponds that would support a cattle operation if desired.

With the vision of a high fence wildlife hunting operation, 3 - 12’x12’x20’ galvanized, steel trussed towers have been installed strategically on the property on concrete footings making solid foundations for the design of large, comfortable, elevated blinds. In addition to the blind towers, 10’ steel fence posts were purchased to encompass the entire 277 acres for the high fence operation. About half of the posts have been installed, the other half are on premise and stay with the property.

The potential and opportunities that the Mid America Wildlife Ranch brings are endless. First and foremost, to pursue a dream already put into motion to own and operate a high fence wildlife game ranch is one that many have but few ever get a chance to pursue. If big game isn’t on your radar the layout is perfect for an upland game hunting paradise as well. The tall prairie grasses are already established and there is a nice area protected and down out of the wind for pens to raise your own upland bird supply. The 10,500 square foot home is a great setup for a bed and breakfast. The ranch is also well-designed for a large family that would like to leverage the well-maintained 277 acres for a dry land farm or utilize the mature, established, prairie grasses for a cattle operation.
