Property Description

Imagine coming home to the country home you’ve always dreamed of owning. You pull into your long driveway that leads up to your big, beautiful, all brick constructed, split-level home with a large all steel constructed shop with oversized doors and concrete floor.  You pull into the driveway of the house and up to the giant, two (or more) car garage that is perfectly positioned on the side of the house, not to take away from the beauty of the front, or the serenity found out back.  Inside you step into the huge center stage of the house with a vaulted ceiling running from the open kitchen and dining room into the front family room with a fire place, adjacent to the sitting room/TV room. You instantly feel the calming effect and immediately notice the primary reason you bought this home, the incredible view out of every window in the house. Looking back across the 80 acres it sits on with a one-and-a-half-acre pond and rolling hills of prairie grass. You can watch the ducks, geese, Purple Martins, and other birds come and go, as well as the local deer that frequent the pond for a drink, or to play out in the prairie hay.

The master bedroom has a sculptured ceiling, a huge walk-in bathroom with his and hers vanities, Jacuzzi tub, shower, and private toilet. Off of the bathroom is a nice walk-in closet.  A set of glass french doors open up to a deck with views of the peaceful setting out back.  At the opposite end of the house is a guest bedroom and separate guest full bath, as well as a small office space in between. The kitchen is well designed with plenty of cabinets for storage, a nice big island with a breakfast bar that will seat 4, and a huge walk-in pantry. Just like the master suite, the dining room has a door allowing access to a deck just outside for those days when our Kansas weather allows for a meal outside with the family, or a place to enjoy your morning coffee.  Every room on the main floor has oversized windows, some with top-down bottom-up shades, allowing just the right amount of natural light in relation to the time of day, as well as access the to the incredible view of the pond and the wildlife that come to enjoy it.

In the center of the main floor is a nice wide stairway that takes you down to the lower level. On the way down is a landing with a sliding glass door, allowing access to yet another deck and the big, beautiful back yard. The deck was designed to be large enough for for a hot tub, and is wired for one too! As you move on down to the basement, you’ll walk into a huge family room perfect for a big screen TV, a place for the kids and their friends to hang out, or big family gatherings.  On the opposite end of the lower level, below the guest bedroom upstairs, are two more bedrooms and a full bath across the hall.  About forty percent of the basement was left unfinished for utilities, storage and a storm shelter/safety room with a locking steel door, and due to the way it was designed you have no idea any of that is even there.

The garage was designed with the kid in all of us in mind.  Not only is there room for 2 (or more) vehicles, there is room for all of your toys, as well as a large number of custom cabinets designed to maximize storage behind doors.  There’s even a nice workshop area with cabinets, work bench, lighting and additional drawer storage.  In the workshop area there is a breaker panel and hookup to allow for switchover to a portable generator when needed.  The house was wired to keep the necessary appliances, water well, sump and Kitchen/Living room/Master Bed room lighting on, in the event of a power outage. The metal building just off of the drive to the house is 2,400 sq. ft. with concrete floor, all steel construction, fully insulated, stadium lighting, guttering, oversized RV style doors on both ends, as well as ample electric outlets, 220 hookups at both ends for RV storage, welder, etc.

The pond is deep and fully stocked with bass, crappie, and channel cat.  The covered patio next to the pond has electric outlets and is wired for an outdoor light and fan under the covering.  An outdoor hydrant is also located next to the covered patio.A paddle boat for family enjoyment is included. The septic lines to the lagoon were designed with a location for an RV dump station as well.

This home was obviously well thought out and designed, and has been nicely taken care of with additional upgrades and improvements along the way.  For more information, answers to your questions, or to setup an appointment to visit this one of a kind opportunity, contact Terry DeShon at 620-921-3015!
