Driving Directions: Access the K-10, South Lawrence Trafficway from the West Lawrence I-70 interchange or follow K-10 from the east. At the intersection of Highway-40/W 6th Street, take the ramp onto Highway 40/ W. 6th Street and go west two miles. Just past the Stull Road junction, the black-top turns north and the property is located on the west side of the road 1/8th mile after the curve, or just north of neighboring subdivision. The property continues adjacent to the highway to the north for a half-mile.

Property Description: Here is your chance to own a stunning 85-acre wildlife sanctuary & development/investment property! This is a RARE opportunity being offered for the very first time in 37 years, located in highly desirable Lawrence, Kansas-the home of Kansas University and the NCAA Basketball Champion Kansas Jayhawks.

LOCATION. LOCATION. LOCATION! Nestled in a quiet rural landscape, the farm has blissfully idled for over a century with only two homesteads during that time. It boasts four bodies of water surrounded by acres of mature hardwoods and vegetation, with some oak trees being over a hundred years old. Directly on Highway-40 in the Kanwaka Township, you are minutes from all your modern, urban amenities. The farm is only a 10-minute drive to Downtown Lawrence and only 2 minutes (2 mi) from the city limits and the widely used South Lawrence Trafficway. At that intersection can be found Lawrence Memorial's new LMH Health West Campus Hospital that just opened in 2020, and Kansas University's Rock Chalk Park. To the south, beautiful Clinton Lake State Park is less than 5 miles away providing boating and fishing to your heart's content. The I-70 Kansas Turnpike, which stretches from coast to coast across America, is a mere 1 mile to the north. Topeka, the state capital, lies just twenty minutes to the west with KCI International Airport and metropolitan Kansas City only forty-five minutes to the east.

HUNTING/FISHING; For the outdoorsman, the excellent fishing and hunting found on the property is enhanced by its unique and diverse topography. Wildlife critters of all types can be observed or hunted in this perfect blend of rolling hardwoods, big timber, native open-pasture grasses, overgrown cedar thickets, and gorgeous creek bottoms. For deer hunters, Douglas County whitetails are some of the biggest in the state, and the rubs and scrapes truly show how much of a deer haven this farm is for world-class whitetail bucks. Gobbling turkeys roost on Coon Creek and geese, ducks, and other waterfowl find the calm waters inviting. Multiple ponds-each stocked over the years with a variety of aquatic species-turns the farm into a peaceful, fishing-enthusiast's dream. Add in the fresh air, blue sky, and natural beauty, and you will see why this 85 is "packing a punch!"

RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT: If in the future a decision is made to develop the property, the location cannot be beat. Beautiful and dramatic building sites await, accessed by any of three county-approved entrances into the property directly from the highway. Three Rural Water District water lines are already in place. A 13-lot, high-end housing development adjacent to the property on the south, and single-owner high-quality properties surround the entire 85 acres, ensuring a first-class neighborhood. Finally, the property is located within the much-desired Lawrence School District.

Build your dream estate or a cabin in the woods, this unique and special property is truly one of a kind. Come take a tour and see what all the excitement is about!
