The entire Highground Horse Farm comprises the house and facilities on the original 97 acres purchased in 1993 and 298 acres acquired in four subsequent land purchases since then. Of these five contiguous properties four have active oil leases, which in 2012 earned a total of $60,650. The price of the full property purchase includes the basic set of tools, equipment and machinery acquired by the owner over time to maintain this property.
This scenic undulating property of long views is bounded by Turner road on the north, and extends more than a mile south beyond Olivet Road. On the West it is bounded by 227th Street and extends eastward more than a mile at its widest point. Other than the hay ground and horse pastures which lay near Turner Road, the balance of the land is forest and grassland. Turkey, deer and other game abound. Miles of cleared and tractor mowed riding trails crisscross the property. Game is often in view from the house or on the trail network.
It is ideal for the avid sport horse owner (eventer, endurance or competitive trail rider) who needs up and down terrain and long trots and gallops for conditioning. For the avid foxhunter the farm is within 15 minutes of the prime hunting venue of the Ft. Leavenworth Hunt, and less than two hours from the venues of the Mission Valley Hunt. It is large enough to be the managed private hunting preserve of the avid deer and game bird hunter. Conveniently located 15 minutes to Ft Leavenworth or the Missouri River Bridge, and from there another 15 minutes to the I-435 ring around Kansas City, or only a total of 45 min to the main Kansas City Airport.
The house and facilities are in excellent repair, and the basic set of machinery and tools needed to maintain the property are included in the sale price, making this country estate ready to be enjoyed by new owners. The spacious house (3566 sq ft ground floor + 730 sq ft finished basement + 260 sq ft finished dog parlor = 4556 total) sits south and back from Turner Road, a mile from Kansas state highway 192, behind a screen of pines, down a long driveway lined with silver maples and past a pond. It commands long views in all the cardinal directions.
The Horse farm facilities comprise the 4824 sq ft Big barn, the 1800 sq ft Hunter Barn, the 2100 sq ft shop/storage building, the Round Bale Storage Barn that can keep up to 144 of these out of the weather, several run in shelters, four paddocks, three pastures, over 25 acres of hay ground, training arenas for dressage and jumping, as well as cross country courses and riding trails.
The balance of the acreage contains more potential hay ground, conservation reserve land, hardwood forest of oak, walnut, hickory and other woods that provide food and roosts for game, some scattered tall cedar thickets favored as hiding places for game.
