Starter Home in the Flint Hills

Pull up a couch. It's cool in the Lounge. Just remember to be a good neighbor.

Starter Home in the Flint Hills

Post by troy »

Birdman Larry & his wife know how much I love a nice place in the country, so they shared this with me--a nice little place in the Flint Hills to spread out on 325 acres near Virgil, KS.

I wonder how big the market is for people who:
  • Can afford $3.5M
  • Want to live a really long way from any conveniences
  • Want to live in Kansas (Look...I love KS, but if I had that kind of cash....could I find someplace better to live? Maybe.)
  • Want to maintain a huge ranch
Does that list even have 10 people on it? Seems some very targeted marketing is required for a property like this. Then again, could this be the new RideForum.NET International Headquarters? Maybe if the pool was larger. I want something I can just move right into without renovation hassles.

:-D

I'm down for half if you'll cover the other half. It's big enough we could live on opposite ends. :-o

You can live in the guest house. I don't want to share my main house.

My brother brought up a negative. I would have to go back to owning a gas weed eater because I don't think my batteries are going to cut it on this property.

If that's how you're going to be then I'm out.

And btw, you don't weed eat that kind of property. That's all done with Sahara or Round up spray from your gator. Newb. :lol:

I have been by that place a number of times. It is a beautiful place. It joins a ranch I have leased in the past to run cattle.

IMO the person buying that already has a place in Colorado or Montana, a "cottage" on the coast and has access to private planes. The future owner either already had a large ranch in the Flint Hills or wants to be a rancher.

I would not be surprised if the buyer has Texas oil money. The hill country of Texas has lots of similar ranches and I see them buying property in KS because every Texan city slicker whats to be a "rancher".

BTW talking about property in KS, much more affordable but still a pretty penny, PM me if interested. [video]https://drive.google.com/file/d/1UcaS1v ... ttHGBrH_FM[/video]

Troy, this would make the perfect headquarters for rideforum, who needs a swimming pool when you have trails to ride ;-). More seriously, delete if not allowed.

Very cool property, Luc!

xrnut, you want to share this one? Only $450K each. House is small for 2 families, though....I'd let you stay in the bunkhouse.

For RideForum HQ you need to think bigger. For Example, the 100 square mile Mesa Vista Ranch at a bargain price of $250,000,000.
