The RLS Ranch, just southeast of Fairbury, NE consists of 323.6 acres rich in history, diverse terrain and is anchored by a ~4000 square foot, 5 bedroom custom-built home awaiting new adventures! This property supports a variety of favorable use options.  A cow/calf operation, an equestrian outpost utilizing the nearby riding trails, weekend retreat for out-of-town Nebraska Cornhusker fans, a corporate retreat, an outdoor youth camp, private wedding/event venue or a peaceful residence all work nicely with this property. The home has entertainment in mind everywhere you turn. Dual dining rooms, expansive eastern views, a walk out lower level with a large stamped patio, water features and a lengthy multi-tiered deck positioned to enjoy nature's seasonal color are notable features you'll quickly come to appreciate. Property also has a newer 30' x 60' Shop with metal siding and a 24' x 36' detached garage to house anything from a large RV to the off-road toys!  

The ranch's landscape reflects nature in it's purist of forms. Rolling hills, glacial-carved wooded ravines, tall-grass pastures, stocked pond, and meandering creek channels (Rock & Spring Creeks) are a proven combination of habitat for trophy whitetail deer, turkey, small & upland game, and migrating waterfowl. Bordering the RLS Ranch to the east, Rock Glen Wildlife Management Area creates an additional 650+ contiguous acres of accessible habitat for wildlife, hiking or riding. Various food sources from neighboring crops, oak stands and the native grasses support and hold a large population of deer & turkey on this property. Various locations support future food plot growth making the property's hunting opportunities even better! Three fields totaling almost 40 acres of CRP are thick with game trails and provides an annual income of $7039 through 2036. Pasture lease is valid through 2023.

Hidden from the road by a mature wind-break and guarded by a steel entrance gate, you'll have all the privacy you need in this beautiful home. The home was built in 1998 and features:  4000 +/- finished square feet, 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, master chef kitchen w/ dual sinks & ovens, multiple laundry facility hookups, multiple fireplaces, deck & wall mounted surround speakers, Pella windows throughout, custom glass buffet built-ins, Culligan water filtration system, dual-zone water geo water-furnace, insulated foundation walls, walkout master suite w/ expansive master bath, multiple dining rooms, breakfast nook with sunrise views, main level guest bath with walkout to deck, Kenmore Elite appliances, massive composite multi-tier deck, stamped patio with water feature.
