THIS PROPERTY IS CURRENTLY LISTED WITH THE LOCAL CENTURY 21 AGENT FOR $60,000 BUT I WILL CONSIDER ALL OFFERS OF $25,000 OR BETTER - THERE IS A LINK TO AROUND 40 MORE PHOTOS OF THIS PROPERTY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE

UNIQUE PROPERTY FOR AUCTION - I AM SELLING MY REPLICA WILD WEST TOWN - OVER 15 BUILDINGS PLUS I WILL THROW IN A STUNT PLANE AND A CAR IN A TREE FOR ONLY $25,000 STARTING PRICE!!! THIS IS A HUGE PROPERTY WHICH COVERS 16 CITY LOTS NEXT TO THE CITY HALL & LIBRARY. IT IS A TOWN WITHIN A TOWN! 

THE PROPERTY IS LOCATED IN THE CITY OF CLIFTON KANSAS (ZIP CODE 66937, POPULATION AROUND 550). IT IS MADE UP OF 6 PERMANENT BUILDINGS & THE REST ARE REPLICA OR ORIGINAL WILD WEST THEMED BUILDINGS. THE LOT SIZE IS APPROXIMATELY 0.75 ACRES.

THE PERMANENT BUILDINGS ARE ARRANGED IN A QUAD & SIT ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE PROPERTY. THEY COMPRISE A 2200 SQ FT RETAIL SHOWROOM (THE RED,WHITE & BLUE BUILDING WITH THE TRIANGULAR ROOF) WHICH WOULD CONVERT INTO A NICE HOUSE IF YOU WANTED TO GO DOWN THAT ROUTE  BUT IT COULD BE USED FOR ANY COMMERCIAL/RETAIL  PURPOSE AS IT HAS A LARGE RETAIL FLOOR, 2 OFFICE ROOMS, A BATHROOM & A LARGE LOFT AREA. THERE ARE ALSO SEVERAL LARGE STORAGE BUILDINGS AS PART OF THE PROPERTY USED TO BE A LUMBER YARD - I HAVE ONLY MEASURED THE SHOWROOM BUT WITH THE OTHER STORAGE BUILDINGS YOU PROBABLY HAVE ANOTHER 5000 SQ FT, MAYBE MORE OF USABLE SPACE FOR A BUSINESS.

THE OTHER PERMANENT BUILDING INCLUDED IN THE AUCTION IS AN ORIGINAL BRICK BANK FROM THE LATE 1800s. DURING THE GREAT DEPRESSION THE BANKER SKIPPED TOWN IN THE NIGHT SO THERE IS SOME HISTORY THERE. I MUST STRESS THAT THE BANK BUILDING HAS NOT BEEN USED FOR SOME TIME & WILL NEED SOME WORK & REPAIRS TO GET IT RUNNING AGAIN BUT IT IS FULL OF CHARACTER. IT HAS A BASEMENT & MANY OF THE ORIGINAL FEATURES INCLUDING THE ORIGINAL CANNONBALL SAFE, WOODWORK, LIGHTING FIXTURES, LOCK BOXES ETC. THE BRICK BANK SITS ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE PROPERTY DIRECTLY NEXT TO THE CLIFTON CITY HALL & LIBRARY.

IN BETWEEN THE LUMBER YARD BUILDINGS TO THE EAST & THE BANK BUILDING TO THE WEST ARE THE REPLICA WILD WEST BUILDINGS WHICH MAKE UP THE GHOST/FRONTIER TOWN ASPECT OF THE PROPERTY. THESE BUILDINGS INCLUDE A 2 STORY HOTEL, A SALOON BUILDING,A DENTIST'S OFFICE, A LAND OFFICE, A SHERIFF'S OFFICE WITH A BIG OLD SAFE, & A NEWSPAPER OFFICE WITH AN ORIGINAL ANTIQUE PRINTING PRESS. THERE ARE MORE SMALL BUILDINGS ON THE PROPERTY WHICH COULD BE TURNED INTO WILD WEST THEMED BUILDINGS WITH SOME WORK & IMAGINATION. MOST OF THE REPLICA BUILDINGS NEED SOME WORK TO GET THEM LOOKING GREAT AGAIN - NEW PAINT & SOME COSMETICS, BUT SOME OF THE OTHERS WILL NEED MORE WORK. THIS PROPERTY IS HUGE AND THERE IS PLENTY OF ROOM FOR EXPANSION - I EVEN HAVE RAILROAD TRACKS INSTALLED ON PART OF THE PROPERTY IN CASE YOU WANT TO ADD A TRAIN CAR OR STATION! 

THERE ARE ALSO SEVERAL UNIQUE ATTENTION GRABBING EXHIBITS WHICH ARE INCLUDED IN THE AUCTION - NAMELY A REAL STUNT PLANE THAT HAS BEEN FLOWN INTO THE ROOF OF A BUILDING & A CAR IN A TREE. IF YOU WANTED TO GET SOME OF THE MONEY BACK ONCE YOU HAVE PURCHASED THE PROPERTY YOU COULD ALWAYS TAKE THE PLANE AND CAR OUT - I KNOW THAT THE PLANE COST THE PREVIOUS OWNER $4500 TO INSTALL & I HAVE HAD OFFERS TO BUY BOTH OF THEM (YES EVEN 2 OFFERS FOR THE CAR IN THE TREE!) BUT I HAVE KEPT THEM IN BECAUSE THIS PROPERTY SITS RIGHT ON MAIN STREET WHICH IS ALSO HIGHWAY 9 & THEY ARE SO UNIQUE & GET SO MUCH ATTENTION FROM PASSING TRAFFIC. 


THIS PROPERTY WOULD BE PERFECT FOR ANTIQUES, FLEA MARKET/SWAP MEETS, AUCTIONS, CAR LOT, ARTISTS STUDIO, TOURIST ATTRACTION ETC. THE PROPERTY IS SO LARGE THAT YOU COULD EASILY USE ONE PART FOR YOURSELF & RENT OUT THE OTHER BUILDINGS - CENTURY 21 DOES  HAVE THE DETAILS OF SEVERAL PEOPLE IN TOWN WHO ARE LOOKING TO RENT THE RETAIL SHOWROOM OUT BUT I AM ONLY LOOKING TO SELL AT THIS POINT - HOWEVER YOU WOULD HAVE THE POSSIBILITY TO RENT OUT PART OF THE PROPERTY IF YOU WANTED TO DO THAT & THE CENTURY 21 OFFICE COULD BE THE PROPERTY MANAGER IF DESIRED.

 

SO TO RECAP THE WILD WEST BUILDINGS WILL PROBABLY NEED SOME WORK TO GET THEM LOOKING HOW YOU WANT THEM. THE MAIN RETAIL SHOWROOM IS IN GOOD USEABLE CONDITION & THE ELECTRICITY & WATER WERE BOTH WORKING IN IT BEFORE THE UTILITIES WERE SHUT OFF SO YOU JUST NEED TO GET THEM CHECKED OVER AGAIN. THE STORAGE BUILDINGS ARE ALL GOOD SOLID BUILDINGS - NONE OF THE ROOFS LEAK & MOST OF THEM HAVE CONCRETE FLOORS. THESE BUILDINGS ALL HAD ELECTRICITY CONNECTED TO THEM FROM THE MAIN BUILDING AT ONE TIME.

I HAVE THIS PROPERTY LISTED WITH THE LOCAL REALTOR AT CENTURY 21 IN THE TOWN OF CONCORDIA, KANSAS FOR $60,000 THE LAST TIME I LISTED THIS PROPERTY SOMEBODY BID IN THE DYING SECONDS AND DID NOT TURN OUT TO BE A SERIOUS BIDDER SO IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN OWNING THIS HUGE PROPERTY PLEASE DON'T WAIT UNTIL THE END OF THE AUCTION AS I MAY END UP ENDING THE AUCTION EARLY TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER IF I KNOW THAT THEY ARE A SERIOUS BIDDER.

I WILL CONSIDER ALL SERIOUS OFFERS OF $25,000 OR BETTER FOR EVERYTHING & IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A SERIOUS OFFER PLEASE CONTACT THE REALTOR AT CENTURY 21 TO MAKE YOUR OFFER. IF ACCEPTED I CAN END THE AUCTION EARLY FOR YOUR HIGH BID - THE REALTOR'S NAME IS VICKI CONN - TELEPHONE 785 243 1555 

I HAVE INCLUDED A COUPLE OF PHOTOS OF WHEN WHAT NOT CITY WAS LAST OPEN TO THE PUBLIC TO SHOW YOU HOW IT COULD LOOK. THE PICTURES WERE TAKEN WHILE THE BUILDINGS WERE BEING USED FOR A FLEA MARKET & AUCTION. THE REST OF THE PHOTOS ARE ALL CURRENT TAKEN EARLIER THIS WEEK. THE CADILLAC IN THE GROUND AND THE WHAT NOT CITY SIGN HAVE SINCE BEEN REMOVED THOUGH THE NEW OWNER IS FREE TO NAME THE TOWN WHATEVER YOU WOULD LIKE TO CALL IT. 

THE PROPERTY IS OWNED FREE & CLEAR AND THE PROPERTY TAXES ARE ALL UP TO DATE. THE TAXES ARE AROUND $1000 PER YEAR. THE SALE WILL BE COMPLETED THROUGH THE REALTOR - THE LOCAL CENTURY 21 OFFICE IN CONCORDIA, KANSAS

PROPERTY ADDRESS IS 106E-120E PARALLEL STREET, CLIFTON KANSAS 66937 - YOU CAN GOOGLE THE ADDRESS TO FIND THE ORIGINAL REALTOR LISTING FOR $60,000 (THERE IS A SMALL ERROR IN THE LISTING - IT SAYS 6 CITY LOTS BUT IT IS ACTUALLY 16 CITY LOTS AS PER THE LEGAL DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPERTY). IT IS IN A GOOD LOCATION IN A SAFE, FRIENDLY, SMALL ALL AMERICAN TOWN ON THE GREAT PLAINS OF KANSAS ONLY 40 MILES FROM ABILENE KANSAS WHICH HAS IT'S OWN SUCCESSFUL REPLICA WILD WEST TOWN. THE POPULATION OF THE WHOLE TOWN OF CLIFTON KANSAS IS AROUND 550 & THERE ARE LARGER TOWNS WITHIN CLOSE DRIVING DISTANCE. THE NEAREST TOWN WITH CHAIN STORES LIKE WALMART, MCDONALDS, A HOSPITAL ETC IS CONCORDIA KANSAS WHICH IS 20 MILES AWAY. THE NEAREST BIG CITY IS CALLED MANHATTAN KANSAS WHICH IS JUST OVER 1 HOUR AWAY & HAS AN AIRPORT, K STATE UNIVERSITY, 100,000 PEOPLE & EVERYTHING YOU COULD EVER NEED.

I HAVE OWNED THIS PROPERTY SINCE 2008. I BOUGHT IT WHEN I WAS CONSIDERING MOVING OUT TO KANSAS PERMANENTLY BUT AS I WILL NOW BE WORKING OVERSEAS FOR THE FORSEEABLE FUTURE I AM RELUCTANTLY SELLING EVERYTHING.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS DON'T HESITATE TO ASK - I HAVE UPLOADED A LOT MORE PHOTOS OF THE ENTIRE PROPERTY ONTO MY FLICKR ALBUM & THE LINK IS BELOW
