Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Andover - River Front

4 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, fish from dock

The house is located on a private ranch with approximately 60 residents. The ranch was a private getaway to retreat from the busy city. It developed into a private home development. It has a small non moving water way lined with large trees that menders to Santa Fe Lake which is approximately 600 acres. Most of the houses are built along the river with most having a pontoon boat or canoe to navigate the river. Makes for a very lazy day for pontooning. The ranch, has over 3 miles of private roadway much of it is single lanes, with hills great for a walk, jog, biking. Could take a trip to the new state of the art Andover YMCA, day passes can be purchased at the Y. Have indoor pool, rock climbing wall, racquetball, basketball courts many other activities. Can't say enough about being close to Wichita. Plenty of shopping, sports events, restaurants, theaters.

What makes this house unique

The surroundings by its self is unique, you feel like you are really far from any town but at the same time only 10 minutes from Wichita. You can watch the stars at night if you are a star gazer. Keep an eye out for and listen for the owls. Foxes roam, along with the squirrels and occasional possum, armadillo. It’s easy to come and stay but very hard with much regrets to leave.

Wonderful, relaxing and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We came to celebrate our anniversary, and didn't want to leave. So peaceful, and relaxing. Was much, much more than we could have asked for. Very clean and decorated beautifully. We spent a lot of time on the back patio, relaxing and enjoying nature. We plan on coming back for our anniversary every year. Helen was superb, and very helpful with anything we needed. Would recommend to anyone looking for something WAY better than a hotel. Would love to come back in the fall and winter also.

Beautiful, Clean and Serene

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this place justice, when you walk in, all you can say is WOW! It is beautiful, full of a lot of artistic touches. I won't go into detail because, you need to see it. I am completely indpired. Secondly, we are clean freaks and we generally bring cleaning products on all trips (even to 5 star hotels), this place is so clean we didn't use them. Lastly, this is exactly what the doctor ordered when he said, "unplug and relax". You sit on the livingroom couch and just watch the river flow on by. Lots of nature here, even a hummingbird came to the window and looked in on us.
