Ace In The Hole & Ranch-Style Home

Peru, Chautauqua County, Kansas


253.8 Arces

Hidden away in the rugged Chautauqua Hills is a 253+/- acre retreat. Located approximately 1.5 miles from Peru and 10 miles from Sedan, KS this property provides a natural habitat for wild turkey, bobwhite quail, waterfowl, and white-tailed deer. There are two gated entries off Indian Rd. As you pull through the main gate you will notice the fescue and native grasses sweeping the hillside. Don't be fooled from viewing this farm afar, travel deeper into the property to discover unique rock formations, woods filled with mature timber, and elevation changes. There are 5 ponds on the property believed to be spring fed. The large pond dam will need some work. The ponds provide a small-water honey hole for waterfowl hunters and fisherman. Located in the Central Flyway, many species of migratory birds travel through Kansas as they travel from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico and back. This makes a great opportunity for birders to see a variety of species and gives the opportunity to hunt.

That's not the only hunting opportunity this piece has to offer. If you are looking for a recreational property, the land is located in an area commonly known as a deer haven! Woody trees along the creek provide cover for the white-tailed deer population. There are some pecan, walnut, and numerous oak and cedar trees throughout. The native persimmon groves provide candy-like treats that the deer love. Adequate browse provides a food source that helps hold deer and keep a healthy herd. A well kept trail system makes navigating the property easy, and there are multiple locations for tree stands. The property is currently leased for hunting. There is also wild turkey on the property and bobwhite quail. Although at one time the population had dipped, the property owner has started seeing growth in covey numbers. Quail need cover for nesting, brooding, and to escape predators and this land is definitely usable for quail.

In 2014 and 2017 the AMA-National American Trails Council US MotoTrials National Series was held on the property. MotoTrials is a sport in which bikes navigate off-road terrain that would make most spectators say No way!. The rocky and hilly terrain, large boulders and ledges made up a technical and fun course. If you have ever dreamed of purchasing land to build your own mototrails or mountain bike course, you do not want to miss out on this!
