This one-of-a-kind home was built in conjunction with Kuhns Brothers Log Cabins and is located on 154.5± acres of Tillable Farmland, CRP, Pasture, Recreational & Hunting Land in Harper County, Kansas. The property is located 1041 NW 50 Road which is 1¼ miles south of Attica, Kansas just off of a newly paved county highway.
This property was purchased as a site for the owner’s dream home. The owners designed the home, ordered custom-built logs from Pennsylvania. The basement was built first and had a complete kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms and full bath. The main two story area of the home was assembled first and later the library – study area was added and the attached garage with a loft area above the garage.
The home has been meticulously maintained and many custom features were built into the home. For example the stair steps were made from oak church pews. There are beautiful stained glass windows, ornate wooden trim, antique light fixtures and many other amenities that will never be duplicated.
The owners furnished the log home with a lifetime collection of antiques, memorabilia and furniture that is the basis for their Upper Rust antique emporium located just north of the property in Attica, Kansas. They would consider selling the home furnished.
The property is serviced by 2 wells built in 2005 that are 130’ deep and have 6” cased and gravel; packed. The north well services the horse shed, pasture and west side of the yard. The south well provides water to the home, front yard and south yard areas. There is an underground sprinkler system that distributes the water from the wells to the beautifully landscaped yard.
The privately owned lake area was dug by excavating gravel and went clear down to a red rock bottom. The lake is about 9’ deep towards the north end and 15’ deep closer to the dam at the south end. The lake is stocked with largemouth bass and channel catfish. The owners own their water rights and have permits to allow selling of water from the lake. The farm land has been leased to a local farmer who takes great care of the tillable land. This property generates a nice stream of income from CRP contracts, farmland production and oil & gas royalty payments. There is a large stockpile of easily accessible gravel that can be sold to the Harper County highway department for up to $100,000. There are other gravel – sand reserves stacked approximately 9’ deep that may total up to 150,000 cubic yards. Income from the sale of gravel can help offset the purchase price of this property.

According to the Kansas Regional Center, some of the most important factors in choosing a place to live is lifestyle, safety and ease of finding jobs.
“You're looking for a place with a low cost of living, nationally ranked schools and picture-perfect communities. But you also want a place with world-class dining, great nightlife and wide-open spaces for outdoor adventure. It isn’t always easy to find that combination. But that’s exactly what you get in Kansas.
In Kansas, we don’t just live life. We live life to the fullest. We’re big on business and economic development, but we know how to relax and have a good time, too. We’re balancing work and play, progress and history, urban and rural to create a quality of life you can’t find anywhere else. And that’s what makes this place so special.
The cost of living in Kansas is nearly 8.7 percent below the national average, making our state among the most affordable in the nation. From food and gasoline to property taxes and car insurance, most of what you need costs less here. Housing costs are especially low, with the median value of owner-occupied homes nearly 35 percent below the national average. In fact, Kansas is ranked among the most affordable places in the country for buying a home. The bottom line is this - your dollar goes further here.”
