Land Area: 480 Acres
This fantastic turnkey cattle, equine, and wildlife property with a gorgeous fully renovated home truly has it all! The entire property is optimized for value, functionality, and beauty. This property was developed by someone who clearly knows how to get the full value of every square foot of ground. All of the grazing ground has been cross-fenced into 8 grazing pastures and paddocks. The fencing is in good shape. Thoughtful placement of gates allow the operator to rotate the cattle and/or horses easily from one pasture to the next. Underground water lines ensure that each pasture is well-watered, with shut offs for each tank location or frost free waterers. The clever layout of this operation supports 150 cow/calf pairs, and it can winter 300 steers. By careful rotation of pasture, the current owners summered 35 replacement heifers from May through September with no supplementary feed.
The corrals and working facility feature all pipe fencing. The barn has a concrete aisle, a tack room, a feed room, and two smaller rooms that were once used for housing goats. The property includes 65 acres of alfalfa, which produced 170 tons in 2016 off three cuttings.
The is a wooded grove in the middle of the property that shelters an enormous turkey population. The cover, pastures, and especially the alfalfa field attract Whitetails and Mule Deer alike, and a large herd reside on the property. Both deer and turkey often graze in the yard, sometimes even venturing up to look in the windows. The current owners do not currently own a dog, so the animals are comfortable hanging around the house and yard, providing just one more element of enjoyment for this property. The hills in the southern pasture are deceptively high, providing a view across the entire Platte River Valley to the Sandhills and beyond.
The real jewel of the property is the magnificent home. The current owners did wonderful updates in every room. The bathrooms are completely new, with granite countertops and beautifully tiled showers with glass wall doors. Thoughtful touches of glass tiling and reclaimed barn wood give the home a casual but classy western feel. The master bedroom is large with both a standard closet and an additional walk-in closet. A third bedroom has been converted to an office with a reclaimed wood wall and shelving. The kitchen has been updated with granite countertops and all new, high end appliances. A former closet was converted to a coffee and beverage station. The formal living room features a new wood burning fireplace with a blower, and the family room has a beautiful wood burning soapstone stove that just radiates warmth.
