Property Description

36 Acre Wilderness Ranch with Pond

Outstanding horse acreage set amid historic northern Arizona cattle ranch near St. Johns, AZ. The property combines areas of juniper woodlands and open grassy meadowland with an approximate 6 acre rainfed pond. The land is square in shape measuring approx. 1,280 X 1,455 containing 36.5 acres. Several gentle rises meander through the land creating elevated cabin or RV sites within the evergreens, each with wide expansive views of the surrounding rangeland. The pond rets in the geographic center of the property. Although seasonal in nature, it fills with each summers monsoon rains and also during exceptionally rainy winters. The photos were taken in the winter of 2019. A variety of nutrient rich range grasses cover the land. These grasses have supported countless herds of prize cattle since the pioneer ranchers first settled this ranch in the 1880s. The soft sandy loam soil that the grasses and wild flowers grow in is also the ideal medium for a wide variety of garden vegetables and fruit trees. Apples, cherries, plumbs, apricots, tomatoes, lettuce, peppers, corn, potatoes, and beans just to name a few thrive at this elevation in these soils. The property lies above the largest fresh water aquifer in all of northern Arizona, the massive Coconino Sandstone Aquifer. Wells tapping this formation yield domestic quality water. In addition, a free access well located a short distance from the property is available to the property owner 24/7 for water hauling back to this property. Adding to the land's privacy is its alignment with 640 acres of scenic State Trust lands that adjoin the land along its southern boundary. This property is held within a state trust and provides a quiet picturesque backdrop to the pond. Outdoor work is rarely curtailed due to the weather. The winters here are mild, typically producing less than 18 of snow most of which falls at a rate of two to three inches per storm and melts into the soil within a day or two. The average high temperature in the coldest month of January is 50 degrees under sunny clear skies. Summer temperatures are mild with daytime highs averaging in the upper 80s. The summer lows average in the 70s. Summer temperatures see additional cooling with the arrival of the seasonal monsoon rains. Typically arriving in mid-July, these refreshing afternoon rains bring forth a profusion of colorful wildflowers and turn the ranch's lush native range grasses vivid green. The land is within a short drive of Lyman Lake State Park and St. Johns, Arizona. This 1,200 acre park is located 10 minutes south of St. Johns and features the 1,500 acre Lyman Lake with outstanding fishing, boating and hiking trails. St. Johns is a charming pioneer town founded in the 1870s and serves today as the County seat of Apache County. Youll find everything you need for your rural homestead there including grocery stores, hardware stores, automotive stores, banks, restaurants, schools and churches. $35,800 total purchase price. $3,580 down payment, $327 month with no qualifying seller provided financing.
