Property Description

Ranch 400 39.56 acres. Positioned atop the highest ridgeline in Sierra Highlands Ranch, this land commands uninterrupted views down and across thousands of acres of scenic woodlands, rock formations, and distant mountains. Several elevation changes occur within its boundaries which can be seen on the topographical map. Each line indicates a 20 change in elevation downward from east to west. Entering into the land from the road access along the eastern border of the property takes you through approximately nine level acres of mixed woods and meadows. This portion of the land is easily accessible and affords the very best building sites/ RV sites with sweeping views primarily to the north, west and south. The property then transitions downward through a series if ridges and sandstone rock formations into rugged- heavily treed land accented by rain fed arroyos. Compare tracts 397 and 401 which adjoin this property when you visit the ranch. Both are comparable, but each has its own character and charm. $34,700, $3,470 down, $299 month. Outdoor work is rarely curtailed do 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 with a day or two. The average high temperature in the coldest month of January is 50 degrees. Summer temperatures are mild with daytime highs averaging in the upper 80's. Private wells are allowed. The land has a secure groundwater supply from its positioning over two defined aquifers, the massive Coconino Sandstone Aquifer and the overlying Bidahochi aquifer. Drilling depths are economical and windmill pumping common throughout the area. In addition, a free access well located a short distance from the property is available to the property owner 24/7 for water hauling. The well was drilled and cased to a depth of 265. When encountered, the water rose in the well casing under its own pressure to 130 below the surface. The water purity is excellent.

The land surface is blanketed with a fine tillable sandy loam soil, ideal for the raising of vegetables and fruit trees. Apples, cherries plumbs, pears and a host of garden vegetables thrive in this soil.

This is a secluded location and best suited for people seeking large acreage ownership well away from neighboring owners and who place a premium on the freedom to use and work their land in a wilderness setting free of urban noise and pollution. All corner markers have been set by registered surveyors and the recorded map with all property dimensions is provided to the new owners. The maintained road access to the property is built entirely along title insured easements recorded with the county recorders office. The residential, recreational and agricultural zoning allows livestock, camping and RV use at the owners discretion. Monthly payments are account serviced by First American Title, one of the nations largest title companies.
