$925,000 • 160 acres
The Cabin on Jayhawk Lane is situated among 160 acres of Kansas' farmland, timber and native grass. This is first time in two generations that this legacy property has come up for sale. Maintained throughout the years as an upland bird haven, with farm and oil income, it has become a whitetail deer sanctuary, as deer have not been hunted on this property decades. Whether you intend to make this your permanent home, a second home get-a-way or a vacation rental, you need to experience the serenity this property provides.The Cabin - Custom designed and built in 2012 by renowned cabin builders Blue Ridge Log Cabins, this home features freshly stained eastern white pine logs on the exterior. The elevated deck overlooks the fully landscaped exterior including a wonderful pond and the shimmering leaves of towering cottonwood trees and native grasses. The front entrance and walk out basement patio are both flanked by stone pillars. Both the deck and patio face north allowing for the enjoyment of the famed Kansas sunsets without the associated heat. The large circle drive leads to an inviting front porch and eastern facing front door. As you walk through the front door, you are immediately overtaken by the high peaked ceilings and wall of windows overlooking the pond. The knotty pine interior walls and floors expand on the comfort and tranquility that a log cabin provides. All interior fixtures and furniture for this home have been professionally designed and meticulously decorated. The home is being offered fully furnished and can be completely turn-key for the next owner. The kitchen features granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances, along with cabinets made from the same knotty pine. The dining room table sits alongside the large picture windows and flows effortlessly into the den area, where you can cozy up alongside the gas fireplace. Natural light absolutely pours into this great room from all directions and leaves you feeling like you are a part of the Kansas landscape residing just outside. In fact, binoculars currently sit on an end table in the den, because you never know what wonders you may see as you gaze through all the windows and into the natural world beyond. Master suite #1 resides on the main floor and again features wonderful window views right from the bed. No detail has been overlooked. There are even light switches with dimmers located on either side of the bed residing above the nightstands and allowing you to control the lights without leaving the bed. The attached master bath has a double vanity with granite countertops, shower, and a large closet. Again, the foresight and coordination of furniture and fixtures is evident and certainly flows through this suite as well. Master suite #2 resides on the lowest level and comes complete with two sets of french doors that lead to the covered patio. The views overlooking the pond are breathtaking all year round. The bedroom is large enough to accommodate a seating area. The bathroom is extra-large and has split double vanities with solid surface counters and a walk-in closet. The vaulted ceilings of both the bedroom and attached bathroom help to provide a feeling of openness, even though you are partially below ground level. Much of the lower level is built with 12 inch, reinforced concrete walls and hardened steel doors for protection against storms. The top level of the cabin has a lounge area with large windows providing additional height for viewing the extended Kansas landscape. You can literally see for miles. This lounge area has a pull-out queen bed and an attached, full bath so guests will be comfortable and they will have all the privacy they need. This space also has a desk and can be used as a study, or it is a wonderful place to relax with a great book.The cabin employs a state-of-the-art security system and HVAC system, both of which can be controlled from your phone. So, whether this is your weekend get-a-way or you are renting it out via Airbnb, it makes long distance management a breeze. The security system is located on-site in a concrete reinforced, hardened room in the garage that doubles as a gun safe and tornado shelter. The Land - The land consists of 160 acres of a mix of timber, small creek beds, native grasses and tillable farm land. The farmland is currently planted with cotton, although prior to 2019, milo was the crop of choice. The land has consistantly produced excellent yields and a nice, passive income for the current owner. There is one active oil well on the property which also produces income. All mineral rights and water rights will pass to the new owners. Mowed walking paths have been expertly maintained throughout the property for the pure enjoyment of nature. Cottonwood trees, osage orange trees, elm and hardwood trees all stand tall over the property and bluestem, fescue, sumac, wild grape vine and plum bushes dominate the underbrush. Bobwhite quail, turkey, songbirds, hummingbirds, and a very healthy herd of whitetail deer all call this property home. This property has not been actively hunted for whitetail deer in decades, which currently boasts a very large contingent of mature bucks. The pond allows for some waterfowl hunting along with winter goose hunting opportunities in the tilled fields. The Area - Located at the intersection of KS-15 HWY and US 77 HWY, access to and from the property is easy. Air travel to and from is also easy as it is only 30 minutes from Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport in Wichita, KS. The historic Kansas Flint Hills are only a short drive away and lay directly between the property and Kansas City. Winfield, Kansas is only 10 miles south. Known for its annual Walnut Valley Bluegrass Music Festival, Winfield has a population of just over 12,000 people and sits alongside the Walnut River.
