Property Description

This five acre tract sits at the end of Johnson Ave, a well maintained dirt road which should be navigable by all vehicle types. It should be noted that the property can also be approached from S. Pine Canyon Road as well. If taking this route, however, be aware that as the road gets closer to the subject property (the last tenth of a mile) it becomes rougher and more overgrown and may be best naviagted by an off road vehicle until such a time as you're either able to create a clearing for yourself or get the county to better grade the road. The best and most approachable access point remains Johnson Ave.

While there is no power on the property itself, most all adjacent lots have power poles and utility boxes, meaning that getting power extended to this land should be neither difficult nor expensive.
In regards Zoning, it should be noted that McKinley County has no formal zoning designation and tends to defer to Home and Property Owners Associations and their respective Covenants and Restrictions when it comes to what can be built or done on lands within their county. This property, however, has no CCRs and thus is likely unrestricted in what can be built or parked within its borders. In fact, the lack of zoning or covenants/restrictions suggests that tiny homes or shipping container homes may be acceptable here as well as other unconventional structures typically difficult to get permitted in other parts of the state. As always, however, buyers are encouraged to check with county officials about the feasibility of their plans for the property prior to purchase.
As noted above, this property sits less than three miles from Bluewater Lake State Park which should provide you with hours of fun and relaxation whether that be boating or fishing or just having camp outs and picnics along the beachfront. As per their website, the park offers camping, hiking, birding and horseback riding and seems to be home to a plentiful supply of the tiger muskie species of fish.

The nearest town is Thoreau which sits just ten minutes north of this property and should be able to fulfill quick grocery and supply runs. For a more comprehensive shopping trip, the towns of both Grants (in the east) and Gallup (in the west) are only a forty minute drive along the I-40. In both of these locations youll be able to find big box stores such as Wal-Mart (in both towns) and Home Depot (only in Gallup) as well as schools, churches and medical facilities.

Numerous Forest Service Roads lead from this property into the nearby Cibola National Forest, an area rich with opportunities for hunters as many species including elk, mule deer, bear and wild turkey, call this area home.

The Bluewater Acres Volunteer Fire Department sits roughly five miles southeast of this property along State Road 612.
