United Country Red Hills Realty & Auction is excited to assist in selling this spacious property in Englewood, Kansas. What a fun and fascinating property with a 1999 model, 16' x 80' single wide mobile home that has been well cared for and loved. The current owners are in the process of purchasing solar panels for the home which makes the utilites inexpensive and will pass along that benefit to the buyers. The home sits on 16 acres. There are 2 cargo storage units on the property. The current owners have cattle, geese, ducks, pheasants and chickens on the ranchette and of course a dog or 2. This would make anyone a lovely retirement place or a great family home with so much room to stretch out and enjoy life. The property runs along Highway 283 which makes for a short drive on the gravel road giving you a real country feel that just makes your heart hum.

Englewood is a small, quiet community in South Central Kansas. According to ghosttowns.com:
"Englewood was founded as an agricultural town in 1884. It was known as the "New Chicago" of the Great Southwest. By 1886 Englewood had three drug stores, four dry goods/grocery stores, two hotels, two lumber yards and more. Drought in the late 1890's put a damper on the town and then in 1906 a rancher donated land just north of town to give the town a boost. New buildings were built but then in 1908 a great fire burned most of it down. Today less than a hundred people remain. Englewood looks just like you see in the movies!"
All great ghost towns that take us back to the Old West should have a saloon of some kind, right? And Englewood does not disappoint with Englewood Cool, a locally owned and operated bar and pub. Enjoy live music, pool, and ice cold beer. Their Earth Day music fest happening annually in April brings in several bands and a lot of fun.
Schools, shopping, restaurants, and churches are located just 20 miles northeast of Englewood in the friendly Kansas community of Ashland.
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.”
As Native Kansans, we couldn’t agree more. Come see why the Sunflower State should be your home too.
