Property Description

Situated high atop the lush Little Colorado Plateau in north central Arizona, this outstanding 36.85 acre wilderness ranch with power service is the ideal blending of evergreen wooded cabin sites and grassy pastureland. The land is situated at a cool-clear 5,500 foot elevation where the air is pure and the year-round temperatures allow outdoor sports and work activities under sunny skies. The land has sweeping overlooks of the Little Colorado river valley and its surrounding hills and meadows. It is bordered by neighboring properties ranging from 40 to 160 acres each. This is a very quiet and private location. The nearest town is the County seat of St Johns, which is an historic pioneer community where a full complement of medical, church, schools, restaurants and services are available. The drive time to St Johns from the land is approximately 40 minutes. The land is covered with a thick mantle of sandy loam garden soils growing a variety of native range grasses and wildflowers. This is superior soil for growing abundant harvests of vegetables and fruits. Apples, Peaches Pears and Cherries all grow well in this area. The acreage is mostly treed with rocky mountain junipers, although there are open grassy portions that comprise approximately 10 acres of the overall total acreage. A prominent elevated ridgeline runs east to west through the center of the property affording a selection of excellent elevated building sites, each with broad solar exposures and views across the neighboring wilderness. Road access has been built along three sides of the land providing easy access to anywhere within its interior. The Little Colorado River channel is just over a mile north of the land. Its waters flow seasonally, primarily during the annual monsoon season during the months of July, August and September. The river has contributed to an exception groundwater supply. This property is positioned above the massive Coconino Regional Aquifer. The Arizona Department of Water Resources in its registered report for this area indicates depth to the aquifer to be between 200' -250' below the land surface and under confined pressure conditions. Once penetrated, the water levels may rise to as little as 50' below the land surface, allowing for economical windmill pumping. The land is zoned for residential, agricultural, and recreation uses to allow maximum freedom of ownership. The new owners will be able to build whatever they wish or camp on their land, or stay in an RV. There is no homeowner's association, no restrictive covenants and no annual dues. Road access has been built along a County recorded, title insured easement and the property corners have been clearly monumented by licensed surveyors. $36,000, $3,600 down, $329 per month with no qualifying seller financing and no closing costs.
