Nestled on the bank of the North Platte River just outside of North Platte is one of the most exquisite, scenic, and luxurious properties to be had in Central Nebraska. This acreage was once part of Buffalo Bill’s famed Scout’s Rest Ranch,. It is 5 minutes from downtown North Platte, and 10 minutes from the municipal airport that handles private jet traffic daily.
This incredible property includes a warm water slough that attracts numerous ducks all winter, including late season Mallards. Geese are drawn to the area in droves, with the surrounding corn fields offering secluded feeding. There is a deep, still pool where record-size Walleye and Northern Pike are pulled out on a regular basis, in addition to Catfish, Perch, as well as both Small Mouth and Large Mouth Bass. Spring brings hoards of Sandhill Cranes to court one another and feed during their migration north. Their trilling calls and acrobatic dance will delight any nature lover, as it is one of the great migratory spectacles of the world. White-tail deer cross the river at this point to reach the fertile fields on the south side of the River, beating trails across this property. All winter long the Bald Eagle fish the river right before the large windows of the home’s sun room.
The heart of the property is a 3,311 sq ft, all brick, steel- framed home. The home sits on a natural geographic rise on the property, providing panoramic views of the river and beyond. The Sun Room is an addition that was built with wood framing and in-floor hot water heating. Only the finest in workmanship, materials, and fixtures were used in construction of this home. Custom tilework, cabinetry, built-in’s, and trimming are testament to the attention to detail and quality that was the focus in construction. Beautiful scenery and teeming wildlife are visible from any window.
While located a stone’s throw from the water’s edge, the house is not considered to be in the flood plain. In addition to an attached garage, there is another detached garage and a 40 x 80 heated, insulated outbuilding, with ample room for RV, boat, and ATV storage. The ceilings in this outbuilding are high enough for an indoor basketball court!
The natural beauty of this location cannot be overstated. The property is in the midst of a wonderland of migrating waterfowl and Sandhills cranes, deer, wild turkey, pheasant, and bald eagles. While close to the convenience of North Platte, the property offers a secluded location for recreation and enjoyment of the great outdoors. Hunting, fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and hiking exist right our the back door. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to live on one of the most beautiful home sites in the State of Nebraska.
