Rarely does a lake view building site in Southwestern Kansas ever come up for sale. Even more rare is a home site that comes at a very reasonable price, yet with city water, sewer and electrical service provided within the purchase price. Added incentives are electrical installation services provided by CMS Electrical Cooperative from the underground distribution box to the house. There is also a 10 year graduated property tax abatement program available for new home construction. Very reasonable covenants are in place requiring homes to be at least 1,200 SF in size and built from new materials. Construction must start within one year of land purchase and be completed within two years. Please see the attached documents for more information.
Eleven of the thirty-one building sites have already sold. The prices of the remaining lots range from only $4,000 to $13,500, depending upon proximity to the lake and size of the building site. This is a perfect time to purchase a building site for the home of your dreams!
Living at Lake Coldwater opens the door to outdoor sports of all kinds, from hiking, to water skiing, kayaking, paddle boarding, jet skiing, power boating, fishing or just a leisurely ride around the lake in your pontoon boat. Wildlife abounds at Lake Coldwater. It is common to see whitetail deer in the yard, wild turkeys and Bob White quail calling back and forth. Waterfowl come in by the thousands over the winter months and we occasionally see flocks of pelicans as they pass through the area. One of the most enjoyable attributes of a home at Comanche Estates are the beautiful sunrises over the lake and the amazing sunsets over the country landscape to the west.

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.
