BRIEF LEGAL:  Lots 3-14, 18-31 in Section 7, Twp. 21, Rge. 08 E, containing 998.4 Acres AND Lots 1-2 in  Section 18, Township 21 Range 08 E containing 78.3 Acres AND 463.1 Acres in Section 6, Township 21, Range 08 E all in Chase County, Kansas for a total of 1,539.8 Acres.

 

TAXES:  $6,479.14          MINERALS:  Sellers mineral rights transfer with the deed.

 

IMPROVEMENTS:  The property has a one story home with 2,199 sq. ft built into a hill overlooking hundreds of acres of rolling hills and the valley of the property.  The home built in 1990 is a slab type with 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths and an attached garage.  This ranch style home has central heat and air with a limestone fireplace, metal roof and vinyl siding with a covered porch/patio area along the front side of the home overlooking a small pond and the beautiful spring fed valley with the Flint Hills sprawling above the valley floor.  The interior has an open concept with the kitchen, dining and living area. Everything is easily accessible and has the character of a ranch house.  Other buildings include a wood frame partial open front horse barn, and a loafing shed in the smaller east pasture.  On the hill above the house is a storage container for extra storage.  The pipe and wood combination pens for gathering is right along Hwy 177 for easy access of loading and unloading cattle trucks. A small scale is also located at the pens for weighting 5-8 head of cattle at a time. The pens can easily hold 200 hd of cattle at a time.  The smaller trap pasture with the pens has approximately 35 acres with a pond and a loafing shed. The pens also have a long wing for bringing in the cattle. The improvements are a very comfortable home and a very user friendly set of pens.   

 

FLINT HILLS PASTURE:  What can we say except the “Heart of the Flint Hills” is Chase County and this Native Bluestem pasture is all that!  Viewing the property it is evident that it has quality Native Bluestem, and other mixed grasses. The Hills have the beautiful bronze color that shows this time of year with quality Native Bluestem.

 

The pasture is divided into 4 pastures; the load out pen pasture is approximately 35 acres. The home pasture is approximately 180 acres. The 2 large pastures are approximately 725 acres in the south and approximately 600 acres in the north.

 

Concerned about the water?  How about 12 ponds and spring water up and down both draws in the 3 big pastures.  We were getting seriously dry the day we videoed the pasture and from the air one could see blue water all through the valley and signs of wet weather draws coming out of the rolling hills. The livestock have abundant water in every area of the pasture they are grazing.  The fences are average to good barb wire with mostly steel posts. Even with the high rolling hills one can navigate a pickup throughout the property.

 

The property is embedded with history with the Knute Rockne Memorial being on this land. The plane carrying Mr. Rockne and seven others crashed in the southwest pasture on March 31, 1931.   This Flint Hills property has it all! Every time we are on the property we like it more and more. When people think about the Flint Hills, this property is exactly what comes to mind- rolling hills on top of the world with water and grass for miles in all directions.

 

This is the best of the best in Flint Hills country.  You can look at other properties, but this is one of a kind, once in a lifetime opportunity!  Call for a tour of the property, you will enjoy the day in one of the most scenic areas of the Chase County Flint Hills.
