SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2021—10:00 AM

LOCATION: 403 S. VERNON, LEHIGH KS  67073 (SE edge of Lehigh)

Ron Dies was a gifted carpenter and craftsman as well as having the passion and love for raising Alpacas. This sale not only offers his home and property but also his tools of trade, some of which he made himself.

Real Estate  —  12.31 acres w/ home and outbuildings (sells first @ 10:00 AM)

Address: 403 S. Vernon, Lehigh, KS 67073

Improvements:  1930’s 1 ½ story home having 1,383 sq ft living area, 1 bedroom and 2 bathrooms on the main floor and 3 rooms upstairs. Home has CH and CA and good metal roof and fenced in back yard.   Outbuildings include a 30’x 40’ shop w/ full concrete floor and 3 lean-tos for added storage or shelter space for animals.  A 30’x50’ wood frame hay shed w/ 12’  sidewalls and is excellent storage for hay or machinery.  Also included on the yard is a 12’x16’ storage shed and various pens for keeping animals and pets.  

The 12.31 Acres of land includes the home and outbuildings, yet has enough acreage to grow hay to support the Alpacas that were Ron’s passion.

NOTE: The home needs a little work here and there yet is very appealing and livable. The shop and hay shed are to be envied as they are really good buildings and have many uses. The land offers hay or grazing for livestock/horses or other hobbies. This is a great opportunity to buy a small acreage property having city amenities but still be secluded from the larger towns, yet only ½ mile off Hwy 56 and accessible to anywhere!
