Property Description: Here is a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a premium property with so much potential sitting right next door to Cheyenne Bottoms Wildlife Refuge. Cheyenne Bottoms is the largest inland marsh in the interior of the United States and is one of the most crucial migration points for waterfowl in the Central Flyway. The property sits directly across the road from the Refuge area of Cheyenne bottoms that is closed year round to all activities. The property has never been hunted or developed in any way so the wildlife on and near this property are extremely comfortable. I truly believe that with development this property has unlimited potential for some of the best waterfowl, upland, deer, and turkey habitat in the state. There are approximately 36 acres of wetlands on the Northeast side of the property.  I like to think of this property as a blank canvas ready to be improved and all of it’s potential realized. Great prospect for conservation easement opportunities. It is very rare that a property bordering Cheyenne Bottoms comes available to the public so please do not hesitate to call with any further questions or to make an offer. Financial verification is required for a showing of the property. Co-Brokers/agents welcome.
