Holmes Rd. near Salina, Kansas. This particular lot sits 1.5-miles south of the Holmes Rd. and Magnolia Rd. intersection at the Southeast corner of the Salina City Limits, so getting to town is a simple 4 to 5-minute drive! Country living with paved road access within the Southeast of Saline School District…AND the bus picks up at the end of the driveway. Ottawa County #2 Rural Water District has already approved this location for a meter, plus there is an existing water well on the land that could be used for lawn irrigation.
