“Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore,” says Dorothy. “Oh, but you ARE!” says the pant-suited Kansas realtor, who with a flick of her wand shows you into the prettiest show barn ever.
Painted M Ranch is the stuff of fairy tales. The sort of place you might have dreamed of owning when you trotted your Breyer models around on your braided rug as a kid and imagined where your barns and rings and wash racks would go. It’s your super-embarrassing adolescent Trapper-Keeper barn doodles come to life on eighty acres of pristinely developed bliss. And as a grown adult, it’s the dream that feeds your drive to complete grad school, to put in an honest 8-5 grind at a busy office and the promise of all that saved money put to good use. This is the dream, y’all.
Painted M Ranch in Olathe, Kansas is a premiere show barn facility with all the bells and whistles.
According to the website, the equestrian facilities include:
- A main barn with 25,ooo+ square feet of stalls, meeting space, and storage, as well as offices with spectator areas into the indoor arena.
- A 180×180 indoor arena with lighting, heating, audio system,and impeccable ventilation

- Numerous pastures and dry lots with loafing sheds, lean-tos, and natural shade.
- Kleenex to wipe away your tears of joy
For the humans, the Painted M Ranch features an eye-popping three homes: a main residence and two guest homes. The main residence is a log-style luxury home with all the accessories you’d hope – a huge kitchen for entertaining, loads of beautifully appointed bedrooms, and of course an outdoor swimming pool that is nearly adjacent to a natural swimming pond below the house.
The guest houses are perfectly appointed as well, whether you’re using them for staff quarters, visiting clinicians, or your non-horsey mother-in-law.
The price on this little gem in the Kansas landscape is $4.95 million. You can find out more at the property’s website.
