A nice slice of peace and quiet!
This 80-acre property’s opportunities are only limited by your imagination. This place was built for folks who enjoy horses and like to ride where the scenery is mostly grass, crops and livestock. However, this place can easily be used for just about anything you can imagine, family getaways, corporate retreat,
B & B, horse B&B, wedding venue and the list goes on. The beautiful custom home is a Tucson style ranch with a full walkout basement that overlooks a gorgeous 3-acre lake waiting to be fished. This property is close enough to be a great home for someone working in the Kansas City area and is far enough out to make a great get away spot for those needing a break from the city hustle. This property is close to groceries and less than 30 minutes to Overland Park.
The house was built in 1995 with a keen eye for detail which can be seen throughout the house. The Tucson theme flows throughout the house even little details like handmade southwestern style door handles, drawer pulls and cabinet hardware. Hard to find Saguaro cactus skeletons are used for accents and inlays. The main level is an open floor plan that is great for large gatherings and entertaining. The fireplaces in the living room and kitchen make a great place to hang out and enjoy relaxing with friends and family. Walk out of the kitchen into the screened in deck and enjoy the relaxing breeze and scenic view of the lake. Also, on the main floor is the master suite complete with sitting area, walk-in closet and spacious bathroom. Coming in from the 3-car garage you walk thru the laundry room and pass by the half bath in the hallway on your way to the kitchen area. The finished basement has a family room with a fireplace. The wet bar has plenty of room to sit, stand and mingle. The two bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom with access from the hall as well. A unique feature in the basement’s storage/utility area is an overhead garage door providing access from outdoors. The house has large windows everywhere allowing great natural lighting plus awesome views from virtually every room in the house. This house design lends itself to many different uses.
The 8-stall horse barn was built for horse people. The barn has a concrete alley with large overhead doors on each end plus another overhead garage door to let the horses out into one of the paddocks east of the barn. The roof is insulated which helps keep the barn a moderate temp year-round. The barn is oriented to optimize airflow when the doors are opened. On a hot afternoon the cool breeze coming thru the barn feels great. Interior construction is all tongue and groove boards. The stall fronts have metal bars and sliding doors. The stall footing is on top of rubber mats for good drainage and safety. The east side has 4 stalls with runs and an alley leading to a run-out paddock. The west side has 4 stalls with windows but no runs and the tack room. This barn has a built-in mist system to control flies and mosquitoes.
The 50 X 100 building is used for a shop plus hay, equipment and miscellaneous storage. There is a 1-bedroom caretakers’ apartment. This building has an insulated roof and concrete floor outside of the apartment.
The property has a park like feel as you drive up the asphalt driveway. Three paddocks, 2.5-acre 3 acre and 7 acres, are fenced for horses. The area along the south side of the driveway is meticulously cared for and looks like you are driving in through a park. The area south of the lake is a longtime favorite camping spot of many Boy and Girl Scout Troops. The rest of the property currently is home to wandering deer and turkeys as well as a great place for a quiet horseback ride.
