Award Winning Property North Of Melvern Lake In Kansas



Located just 3 miles north of Melvern Lake reservoir, This award-winning property has everything a recreational property needs to provide quality hunting opportunities in the land of giants. The previous owner was honored with the prestigious Wildlife Habitat Conservation  Award in 2001 by the Ks Dept of wildlife and Parks/ Ks Bankers association. This award is rare, and not many if any recipient properties are on the market. The property has water and electric already hooked up and is ready for an RV or camper, and would make an excellent home or cabin site. The gently rolling terrain is made up of native grass and fescue that has been cross fenced providing excellent grazing and income. A raised roadbed was put in providing access to all parts of the property even in the wettest conditions. The thick timber along the southeast border is comprised of mature harvestable hardwoods.  Within the timber are remnants of old coal pit providing water and security for the abundant wildlife. The place is loaded with deer and turkey. Excellent vantage points to observe game can be accessed on multiple parts of the farm. A high density of deer and turkey on the property provide abundant hunting opportunities. This area is known for producing record book whitetails. Some examples can be seen in the pictures. The farm boasts three ponds, all stocked with fish. The largest one is fully fenced and gated to keep cattle out of it if desired.  This is a perfect place to take children as it is not uncommon to catch over 20 fish in less than an hour. Yet full of large fish to entrain the adults as well. Stocked with crappie, channel cat, bluegill and bass, this property will keep the bobbers bobbing all summer long.  The neighboring crop fields give the deer and turkey a food source destination and provide time-proven pinch points and ambush sites. Remnants of an old stone fence, high on top the northernmost hill adds character and provide excellent views for miles around. Showings are by appointment only so give the listing agent a call for your one on one viewing of this award-winning property.
