Property Description

81 ACRE WILDERNESS RANCH WITH HOME
BORDERED BY FEDERAL LANDS

Scenic 81.33 acre turn key ranch secluded deep within a wilderness valley surrounded by towering mesas, verdant green meadows and evergreen wooded rock ridges. Located in east-central Arizona atop the scenic Colorado Plateau at a cool-clear 6,000 elevation, this completely fenced ranch is an extraordinary blending of terrains and landscapes. The land transitions from its heavily wooded high point at 6,060 down across a series of wooded terraces into approximately 50 acres of mixed woodlands and grassy pastures. This lower portion of the property is mostly level and an ideal location for organic gardens, fruit tree orchards and the grazing of livestock. This area of the acreage is blanketed with a lush selection of native grasses and colorful mountain wildflowers growing in a fertile sandy loam soil. Area growers yield abundant harvests of tomatoes, corn, peppers, potatoes, squash, beets, onions, lettuce, kale and many other vegetable varieties throughout the spring, summer and fall months. Apples, peaches, pears and cherries are other area fruit tree favorites. This acreage is a hikers delight, where ancient Anasazi pottery shards and arrowheads that have lain undisturbed for over 1,200 years can easily be found. The far northern portion of the ranch contains approximately 35 acres of woodlands set amid a series of gently terracing ridge lines that culminate at the highest point in the valley. Three building pads have been prepared amid these woodlands, each with driveway access and dramatic overlooks of the surrounding valley and mountains below. Each of the three pads will make excellent location for additional residential structures or RV pads for visiting friends and relatives. The highest of these prime building sites is located atop the highest point in the valley. At 6,060, this ridge top cabin site commands scenic 360 degree views of the surrounding wilderness. The hilltops privacy is enhanced by the adjoining 640 acre tract of uninhabited BLM (Federal) lands that adjoin the property's entire northern border . With BLM lands to the north, as well as views into thousands of acres of uninhabited New Mexico wilderness lands to the east, this is a truly remote getaway free of people, urban noise and ambient light. The property includes a well appointed 30 x 40 steel Quonset hut including appliances, septic system, internet and dish network system, 4,000 watt solar energy system, 1,550 gallon water storage tank and delivery system, 20k backup diesel generator and 24'x'30' garage/workshop. A list of the many other improvements is available on request. The weather at this elevation is comfortable year-round with summer highs in the 80's and winter highs in the 50's. Less than 18 inches of snow on average falls all winter, supplemented by approx. 11 inches of rainfall, most of which falls in the summer months of July and August. The property overlies the largest fresh water aquifer in the state. The new owners can tap the aquifer at affordable depths and provide their own private water supply free from outside interference. In addition, the property has rights to a free access convenience well. Free roaming herds of elk, antelope of deer inhabit the valley year-round.
$185,000 with no qualifying seller provided financing. Call John (Owner/Agent) at 928.245.1922 for additional photos, area water reports, annual weather chart, and nearby town information.
