Description

Located just 3 ½ miles southeast of Luray, KS, Wandering Star Ranch offers a picturesque country home in a serene setting with over 60 acres of incredible land along a wooded creek bottom in the Smoky Hills Region of Central Kansas. The property showcases a beautifully remodeled 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom brick home, along with several other amenities and improvements.

COUNTRY HOME

The home itself spans over 2,000 sq ft and has undergone extensive remodeling in recent years. Updates include new windows, doors, roof, wood trim, and flooring. Countertops, cabinets, dining room, and bedroom walls have all been refinished, giving the home a fresh and modern look. New appliances, a new septic system, R/O system, water heater, and a newly drilled water well (2022) have also been added providing top notch living conditions for the new owner. The bathrooms have also been remodeled, with the 2nd full bathroom being newly constructed in 2023. Luxury vinyl flooring can be found in the living room, kitchen, dining room, laundry room, and bathrooms, while the bedrooms and hallways boast newly refinished oak wood floors. Additional updates include new storage cabinets and wall insulation in the back porch, HVAC upgrades and a Mitsubishi mini-split cooling/heating unit, and plumbing updates to protect against freezing. The front porch features a Trex deck and Western-style antique ceiling tile, adding a charming first impression of the home. The farmstead has been completely fenced to prevent any intrusion by livestock. New shutters have been installed on the south face of the house and the property also benefits from excellent windbreaks that protect the entire farmstead.

BUILDINGS & IMPROVEMENTS

In addition to the home, Wandering Star Ranch offers several outbuildings and gardening features. The garage provides space for one car and includes a garden nursery room with new windows, door, insulated walls, and ceiling. The stone barn features 2-3 stalls for horses, a tack room, and has had trusses, guttering, and a metal roof replaced in 2019. Windows and Dutch doors have also been installed. There is a round corral, dry lot, and two hydrants associated with the stone barn. The red barn serves as storage for equipment, while the machine shed/hay barn was newly built in 2021 and had additional panels added on the west side in 2022. The property also includes a covered dog pen with a cement floor and exterior dog run.

For those interested in gardening, Wandering Star Ranch offers high tunnels and an incredible garden area. There is a 36' x 24' attached nursery room (2019 Farm Tek), a 35' x 48' high tunnel (2020 Farm Tek), a 30' x 72' high tunnel (2023 Tunnel Vision Hoops), and a 16' x 60' fruit hoop (2023 Farmer's Friend) for growing raspberries, rhubarb, gooseberries, and honeyberries. The property also has a sweet cherry and pie cherry tree. A gravity flow rain catchment system with a capacity of over 3000 gallons is in place, along with a blackberry trellis and an onion & garlic drying shed. Well-developed growing beds, comfrey and horseradish beds, and fruit trees complete the garden area.

AGRICULTURE/LIVESTOCK

With its excellent pasture and hay ground, Wandering Star Ranch is ideal for both beef and pork production. The pig yard is fully fenced and divided with woven wire, hog panels, and electric fencing. It can accommodate 6-10 feeders and features a natural wallow for the pigs. The property also includes a bulk self-feeder, cargo truck housing, and a self-watering system. The pastures have been well improved with brome and alfalfa mixtures, and there are approximately 30 acres of hay ground. Two water hydrants are available in the corral, and in normal years, there is live water along the creek. The property is cross-fenced and includes an older shelter area on the north side of the creek, as well as good shade trees along the creek. A catch corral is also present for easier livestock management.

HUNTING & RECREATION

In terms of hunting and recreation, there are ample opportunities at Wandering Star Ranch. The heavily timbered creek bottom and surrounding flats provide excellent opportunities for whitetail deer, turkey, and quail hunting. The property is known for trophy whitetail deer hunting, with several potential treestand locations throughout the creek bottom. The area also boasts great numbers of Rio Grande turkeys and strong quail populations, making it an ideal location for upland bird hunting. Additionally, the property is conveniently located only 7 miles from Wilson Lake and Wilson State Park, offering over 9,000 acres of surface water for fishing, boating, and other water sports activities. The reservoir is known for its excellent bass, crappie, and walleye fishing. Over 8,000 acres of public hunting land surrounds the reservoir within the Saline River valley.
