Here is what everyone is looking for: a wonderful ranch style home sitting on 4.8 acres! Want some elbow room and a quiet spot in the country? Like to fish or hunt whitetail deer, mule deer, quail, pheasant, turkey, or duck? Find pure relaxation just watching birds and wildlife? Then this is the place of your dreams.
This home is in a remote area but not so out-of-the-way that internet is not available. In fact, Haviland Telephone Co. has fiber optic line that runs to the home so you will have excellent internet service right in the middle of your quiet country escape. The home has many unique characteristics. For example, the garage has been converted into an elevated laundry room. There are 5 bedrooms and 2 full baths. A lovely kitchen flows into a sunlit dining room. Beyond that is another area that could be used for a dining room, office, or den. The living room is a nice size to entertain your guests. There is ample storage in this lovely home with many cabinets and built-ins.
This home would work well for retired individuals that enjoy the quiet and tranquility of country living. This would also make a great place for a family wanting to show their kids how to live off the land and enjoy all that nature has to offer. Another option would be for a starter home with so much room to grow.
The water well is conveniently located in the basement of the home. Also, in the basement is a very large bathroom with a cowboy shower. There is a large area with a fireplace that can be used as a cozy family room along with 2 bedrooms and a storage room for canning, more storage, or potentially another bedroom.
Now let’s go outside: There is an 80’ x 40’ Quonset with a door large enough for semi-tractor or large farm equipment entrance. In the back yard there is plenty of space for grilling and shade for lawn chairs. You can sit back and enjoy the cool summer breeze in the evenings. The backyard is also home to a chicken house and a nice pen for raising baby chicks or birds.
Farther in the back there is a 3-sided building for livestock to seek shelter from the cold or the heat. Mule Creek runs through the property which draws in all kinds of wildlife and birds including ducks. Please don’t be concerned about high water or flooding, because the rain water runs away from the home which is already built higher than the creek. There are all different kinds of trees on the property that the wildlife love.
Whether you like to fish, hunt, birdwatch, garden or just soak up some country tranquility, the possibilities are endless with this property. You must come and check it out and you will fall in love with it.
The property taxes for 2019 were $1,452.80.
The home is serviced by a water well, septic system, and propane gas. There are electrical, internet, landline, and cell phone services available from nearby providers.
Wilmore is a very small Kansas community with a quiet, peaceful, tranquil atmosphere. The rural, little prairie town is tucked just 12 miles northeast of Coldwater and about 27 miles southeast of Greensburg. Wilmore has a rich history and a story all its own. Previously home to the famous Wilmore Opry, down-home music was known to fill this sweet little town. The Wilmore Carousel, an Italian carousel assembled and operated by a couple in town still welcomes visitors to enjoy a step back in time. Wade-A-While Park is located on the banks of Mule Creek just a few miles to the east of Wilmore. A favorite place for picnics, fishing or just wading in the crystal clear, spring fed creek, the park has been the start of many fond memories.
Recreational opportunities abound with a short 12 mile drive to Coldwater Lake which is located near Coldwater, not far from the famous the Red Hills Scenic Byway. The city lake and park is situated in the rolling hills and woods of the scenic Gypsum Hills region of the state. The surrounding area offers rugged beauty and stunning vistas. Coldwater Lake is the best kept secret in Kansas and very popular with people of Southwest Kansas and Northwestern Oklahoma.
The 250-acre lake and 930-acre park provide anglers and outdoors people with lots of enjoyable activities. Annual fish stocking is handled by the Kansas Wildlife and Parks Commission. The lake is located next to a beautiful 10 hole golf course, with very low green fees.
This area of Kansas is known for its farming and ranching operations. There are jobs available in this area of the state for agriculture, oil and gas, as well as wind energy.
The city of Coldwater provides excellent public schools and a welcoming small town atmosphere. This could be your new country home in the historic Red Hills.
According to the Kansas Regional Center, some of the most important factors in choosing a place to live is lifestyle, safety and ease of finding jobs.
“You're looking for a place with a low cost of living, nationally ranked schools and picture-perfect communities. But you also want a place with world-class dining, great nightlife and wide-open spaces for outdoor adventure. It isn’t always easy to find that combination. But that’s exactly what you get in Kansas.
In Kansas, we don’t just live life. We live life to the fullest. We’re big on business and economic development, but we know how to relax and have a good time, too. We’re balancing work and play, progress and history, urban and rural to create a quality of life you can’t find anywhere else. And that’s what makes this place so special.
The cost of living in Kansas is nearly 8.7 percent below the national average, making our state among the most affordable in the nation. From food and gasoline to property taxes and car insurance, most of what you need costs less here. Housing costs are especially low, with the median value of owner-occupied homes nearly 35 percent below the national average. In fact, Kansas is ranked among the most affordable places in the country for buying a home. The bottom line is this - your dollar goes further here.”
As Native Kansans, we couldn’t agree more. Come see why the Sunflower State should be your home too.
