There is one large non conforming bedroom with an open closet that stretches the width of the room. This room is fully sheet-rocked with concrete floors. The largest room in the basement could easily be turned into a second family/living room as well as a mancave/den. This room is also fully sheet-rocked with concrete floors. The farthest east room in the basement stretches the length of the house and is where all of the utility appliances such as the furnace, on demand tankless water heater, breaker box, and water softener are located. There are numerous closets and other storage options in the basement as well. 

The Home: On The Outside- As you pull off the blacktop and onto the circle drive on the west side of the home you will notice the home is surrounded by mature tree rows and has a vast yard. A riding lawnmower is a definite must! On the front side of the home there is a concrete pad with a basketball goal that leads up to the attached 1 car garage as well as concrete walk-ways from the circle drive to the front porch and garage. The front porch is a raised concrete porch that is fully covered with the roof extending west off of the house and the perfect place to catch those evening sunsets.

The back porch consists of an oversized stamped concrete slab with a walkway to the back garage door as well as a three step approach leading up to the newly installed double french doors leading into the dining room and kitchen of the home. With the addition of some patio furniture, a grill/smoker, and a firepit the back patio would be your ideal spot to enjoy coffee sunrises as well as the perfect place to have family and friends over to enjoy the evening weather. With multiple mature trees in the backyard shade will be of no issue either.

This shed is well lit on the inside and also has an oversized electric garage door allowing you to pull tractors and other heavy equipment indoors for maintenance or storage. On the outside the concrete pad extends to the south as well as the west. The extended concrete on the west side is covered by a lean-to built off of the shed allowing for a covered patio or a place to store equipment outdoors while still allowing it to be protected from the Kansas weather. 

The South Shed: Size: 40x40. The south shed is fully concreted and well lit. There are three oversized electric garage doors allowing for you to store heavy equipment campers or boats indoors. 

The East Shed: Size 60x40. The east shed would be a good place for you to store your daily use equipment indoors without having to worry about getting your concrete floors muddy or tracked up. With a dirt floor you could also add stalls opening up opportunities to keep horses and other livestock under a roof and protected from the harsh Kansas weather.

Other Buildings: There are numerous other buildings on the property such as a chicken coop and multiple tool sheds with garage doors.

Where Does The Name "Serpent Ranch" Come From: In the pasture portion of tract 1 lies a mark left behind by the Quiveran Indians.The Serpent Intaglio was dug by the Quiveran Indians sometime around 1200-1300 A.D. It is approximately 160 ft. long and varies in width from 4 ft. to 10 ft. it is in the shape of a moving snake, or serpent. The Quiveran Indians used symbols as their written language, and to the Quiveran Indians the snake meant water, protection, and new life with the shedding of the skin. The Serpent Intaglio points head first towards a line of three well known Quiveran Village sites north of the Serpent Ranch. These Quiveran Village sites were estimated to have been home to potentially tens of thousands of Plains Indians.
