Johnson Lake Ranch is all-encompassing Kansas sportsman's paradise that features a total of 450 acres consisting of creek bottom, heavy timber, grass, CRP, crop land and it is highlighted by 2,400 square foot home that sits alongside a 32 acre private lake. Located only 45 minutes southwest of Wichita, KS in the heart of famed whitetail hunting unit #16, properties like this just do not become available often. THE HOME - This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home was originally built in 1969 and has been continually updated throughout. The kitchen, master bathroom have all been redone and a family room and covered deck overlooking the lake were added in 2010. Imagine the masonry fireplace crackling while enjoying a game of pool with the reflections of the setting sun on the lake just outside. The periodically strong Kansas winds may blow outside, but there is neary a whisper inside this sturdy, well built and well insulated home. The custom built cabinets and a matching built-in entertainment center are eye catching, along with the solid surface countertops in the kitchen. The master bedroom has a sliding glass door that opens to a private patio to the east and provides spectacular sunrise views of the lake. The all brick exterior is largely maintenance free and the 50-year class 4 roof and Anderson windows are also built to last. The two car garage provides plenty of space, but the home also has two outbuildings (each with electricity) and the half basement has a concrete reinforced storm shelter along with ample storage.The pride of ownership shines throughout this home. The maintenance, upkeep and enhancements are impressive and are set to make an easy, worry free transition for the new owner. THE LAND & LAKE - A total of 450 acres, this place is an agricultural and wildlife bonanza. The main 32 acre lake is stocked (bass, crappie, catfish and sunfish) and is flanked by 5 additional stocked ponds and a stocked half-acre, 20 foot deep gravel pit. There is no shortage of fishing opportunities...and there is no shortage on places to hunt waterfowl. Located in the central fly-way, this property attracts thousands of ducks and geese as they make their way south. With so many places to set up, there is no wind or situation that can stop your next waterfowl hunt. In addition, Aldrich Creek flows through the property and empties into the Chikaska River, which resides a mere 400 feet from the northern property line. The lake, dam and overflow have all been re-worked and updated within the last few years with the approval and supervision of the state of Kansas and should be solid for a generation to come. The land has some gentle rolling hills and is a mixture of tillable acreage, CRP, pasture and creek bottom with heavy timber. Whitetail deer, upland birds and wild turkey thrive all over the property. As you make your way through the property, the diversity really jumps out. Everywhere you look there seems to be another habitat area and something else to see. Whether it is another plum thicket holding another covey of quail, or another tall hardwood begging for a new stand to be hung, the opportunities are endless and only limited by your imagination. All wildlife populations have been expertly managed, both for quality and quantity. There are a total of 65 acres of CRP with an annual payment amount of $1500 (expires in 2025). There are also 90 acres of pasture, 37 acres of hay ground and 60 acres of tillable crop land, all with year to year tenant leases.
