OVER. TWO. MILES. OF. CHIKASKIA. RIVER. BANK. For the first time in a generation, this +/-630 acre riverside property is for sale. With nearly unparalleled live water access, almost 300 acres of highly productive tillable farmland, 330+ acres of river bottom pasture, dense timber and the high quality recreation you expect in South Central Kansas, this property has it all. Land An exciting mix of tillable farm ground with many of those acres featuring productive class 1 soils, well managed pasture grass, dense timber with massive cottonwoods, catalpa trees, willows and elm trees and anchored by the +/-2.19 miles of Chikaskia River bank. Residing in the river valley, whether growing crops or the grass that feeds a prized cattle herd, the soils have proven to be productive year after year. In addition to the river itself and a pond that was cut from the “old” river basin, there is also a creek that meanders through the property. Improvements Store all your equipment and toys in the one of the largest metal round top buildings in the area. At approximately 120’x50′ and featuring large double-ended sliding doors, this building provides enough space for your imagination to run wild. You could easily park your RV inside and quickly have a covered, weatherproof camp, or the building could even be renovated into a wedding or party venue. There is a 3 bed, 1 bath home that is currently in service as an overnight camp house and is suitable for necessities and getting warm after a cold hunt. There are multiple outbuildings and storage sheds on the property as well. Farmers will appreciate the grain storage bins, or they could be used to create one of the trendy outdoor kitchen/bar areas. Cattle ranchers will appreciate the good fences, solidly built pipe chutes & pens, feeders and waterers. The infrastructure is there to help maintain your herd in any way needed. Finally, there are a number of RV electrical hookups in and around the home. These have been used to supply large numbers of friends and family’s RVs on long weekend getaways, but could potentially be used as a business opportunity or pay for spot RV campground. Recreation Avid hunters and outdoor lovers know the recipe…if you own the water, food and shelter, you will have quality wildlife on site. The 2 Mile Chikaskia River Ranch has all that and more. And, it is big enough to provide privacy and elbow room. No more wondering about neighboring hunters and how they may affect your hunt. Whitetail deer, waterfowl, turkey and upland birds seem to be everywhere on this property. With very little hunting pressure over the last decade, it has become a bit of a sanctuary. Following the well-maintained pathways and trails throughout the property, it is head-shaking to see the game all around you. On one recent trip out to the property, all while looking at a turkey track on a sandbar in the riverbed, a doe and fawn could be seen peeking out from a far off line of timber, bobwhite quail whistles could be heard on the breeze and a flock of geese flying overhead. Moments prior, a dozen dabbling ducks had been spooked off of the 1+ acre pond that sits adjacent and just south of the river. The landscape up and down the river corridor has just enough change in elevation to help to create ambush spots and the ability to get in and out of a stand without undue disturbance. Famed Kansas whitetail deer abound on this property. They have everything they need without leaving the borders. Spend just a little time on the property and even if you don’t immediately spy the deer themselves, you will see where their travel corridors reside and how they are well worn into the loamy soils. Don’t be fooled into thinking the recreation and hunting ends right near the river bank. The farm fields provide excellent opportunities to hunt upland birds and to field hunt ducks and geese. The grass pasture areas are dotted with more timber and those sanctuaries make excellent bedding areas where the big bucks aren’t disturbed. These same areas light up in the spring with gobblers calling out to potential mates and strutting in the open areas for all to see. Need a summertime cool off while hanging stands and putting out feeders? Grab a fishing pole and cast a line into the river or the pond and you never know if you might latch onto a catfish, bass, sunfish, gar or any of the other varied fish that inhabit the waters. Hunting predators and small game are also an option on this property. The sandy soils and extensive trail system also lend itself well to hikers, mountain bikers, dirt bikes or ATV riders and any number of other activities. Agriculture The nearly 300 acres of farm ground on this property has proven year after year to be reliable and productive. With only gentle 1 to 3 percent slopes and high class soils, it could be planted to just about any grain you choose to grow. This ground has also been able to provide supplemental hay for the on-site cattle operation. Access is easy and all of the tillable ground is contiguous. Sellers are willing to assist in helping to identify a farm tenant as needed. There are +/-330 acres of productive pasture as well. Expertly managed for more than a generation, this grass has been the epicenter of a prized cow/calve operation. With the infrastructure in place, you could pick up with your own livestock, or lease it to a local rancher as well. Water/Mineral Rights & Natural Resources Water rights and mineral rights are both set to transfer to the new owner upon closing.
