Step into a world of tranquility on 60 acres of pristine land in Allen County, Kansas, where nature's gentle touch invites you to unwind and reconnect. I'm Andrew, your guide from L2 Realty, and today, we're privileged to showcase this slice of paradise alongside the esteemed landowner, Mark, and his wife Virginia. 

Over two decades ago, Mark and Virginia stumbled upon this haven, seeking a tranquil escape. They discovered a harmonious blend of 30 acres of lush grasslands and 30 acres of majestic woodland, cradled by the gentle embrace of Little Osage River that wraps around the property. Nature enthusiasts note this land is teeming with life, with sightings of up to 25 to 30 turkeys at a time and deer wandering its verdant trails or using the foodplot.

But wait, there's more! Nestled within this idyllic landscape are two serene ponds, lovingly crafted by owners three years into their stewardship. The West Pond and the East Pond offer not just a scenic vista but also serve as a playground for boating enthusiasts, with a small two-person scamp boat ready to grace their tranquil waters.

 For those with a green thumb, indulge in the orchard at the property's rear, boasting a bounty of fruit trees including apple, cherry, and persimmon. And for the discerning hobbyist, a 30x40 barn awaits, accompanied by a cozy lean-to greenhouse for nurturing your botanical passions. Garden space could but utilized almost anywhere on the property, but you will be able to get an early start with the south-facing greenhouse.  

Privacy? It's not just a feature; it's a way of life here. Accessible yet discreet, finding your way to this haven might require a good memory, but rest assured, the tranquility you'll find is worth every twist and turn. The thick trees along the road provide a nice screen from the road, you can not see the road from the building. When the sun goes down get the firepit and smores ready, don’t forget to look up and check out the stars. The open grassland is a great spot to catch the next meteor shower.  

With three generations having enjoyed the solace of this land, Mark and Virginia now seek a worthy steward to carry on its legacy. Whether you're drawn to its abundant hunting opportunities or simply seeking refuge from the hustle and bustle of city life, this is your chance to own a piece of Southeast Kansas's finest.

Join us for the online auction and seize the opportunity to become the custodian of this enchanting retreat. Mark's dream is for someone to embrace and preserve what he and Virginia have nurtured for so long. Will you be the one to carry the torch? Take your chance to make this dream yours.
