The property totals 80 acres more or less and is conveniently located south of Melvern near exit 160 off of I-35. Access to the property is excellent with the property conveniently located within 1 mile of pavement and within 1.5 miles of the Melvern I-35 exit. The property has gravel road access along its southern and western borders via E 341st St and S California Rd respectively.
Location, Location, Location makes this tract extremely attractive with quick convenient access down I-35 from the Kansas City area. Combine a great location with tremendous country views and good access to utilities and you have the makings of a beautiful country getaway or a location to build your forever home. The property is composed of native and mixed grass pasture with significant topography change and lightly timbered draws that provide hunting opportunities to the outdoor enthusiasts (deer and quail both utilize the property). The tract sits high in its eastern half with multiple large flats perfect for a build site before falling substantially to the west with 60’ of topography change as you move across the property. Locations in the eastern half of the property sit high and offer tremendous views to the west. Rural water and electrical service are present along both E 341st St and S California Rd on the south and west sides of the property. Please contact Osage County Rural Water District #4 at 785-418-6741 with questions regarding water availability and capacity.
The property is also an attractive grazing unit for the area. The tract is composed of primarily open grasses (becoming harder and harder to find in Osage County) that are ready to go to work within your cattle operation. The tract has been used to graze yearlings recently but would also make a good location for cows given multiple lightly timbered draws on the property that provide good winter protection to livestock. The property includes one pond along its western border. Fences range from adequate to average.
Whether you are looking to add a solid grazing tract to your ranching operation or are looking for a spot in the country near pavement for a country getaway or location to build your dream home, you aren’t going to want to miss your opportunity to purchase this attractive parcel.
