Tract 229 is a beautiful 37.91 acre ranch located approximately 19 miles northeast of St. Johns, Arizona in the secluded highlands of the Arizona/New Mexico border country. The land is situated at a cool and clear 6,200 foot elevation where the comfortable temperatures allow ranch owners to enjoy their land year-round. The days here are sunny, the nighttime sky clear and the mountain air clean and refreshing. Occasional winter snowfalls are light, rarely exceeding more than two to three inches. Summer days are warm and sunny, but never hot. Average daytime summer highs are in the mid to upper 80s. The seasonal July/August monsoon rains bring additional cooling and turn the native grasses lush green. Throughout the summer, colorful mountain wildflowers spread across the land's meadows. This is an exceptionally quiet and peaceful land of sweeping mountain vistas and broad grassy valleys devoid of urban noise and teeming with free roaming elk, antelope and deer. The property was custom surveyed to include generous portions of wooded acreage and grassy meadows. The blending of wooded and meadow acreage here is ideal. The contours of the land are nearly level, making this land very easy to fence and entirely usable throughout. The property's prime cabin sites are located along the crest of a heavily treed ridge which rises up through the land's northern portion. Cabin decks and picture windows from atop this high point will have unobstructed views of the land's rich meadows as well as scenic overlooks into the surrounding mountains and valleys. These building sites also all have excellent solar exposure for solar energy generation. From this high point, the land gently transitions through the trees to an open expanse of pastureland where a blanket of native range grasses and wildflowers carpet the meadow. Step across the entire 1,850' eastern border of this land and you enter into a 640 acre section of State Trust Land. This beautiful wooded acreage provides a quiet and scenic backdrop for Tract 229's owners with no neighbors for an entire mile across from the property's eastern boundary.This acreage is ideal for livestock and self-sufficiency gardens and orchards. The soil throughout the meadow is a soft sandy loam base. There is no rock here to contend with. The Arizona Department of Water Resources report for this property confirms the availability of two fresh water aquifers beneath the land for ranch owners to drill their private wells into. These are both well defined water basins that provide ranch owners with domestic quality water. Wells drilled approximately 325' tap into the shallower of the two aquifers. With the abundance of groundwater, owners in Sierra Highlands Ranch are exempt from the requirement to obtain a drilling permit for their domestic wells. Sierra Highlands Ranch property owners also have exclusive free access to the ranch's convenience well. The well is powered by a state of the art solar pump which delivers water into twin 5,000 gallon storage tanks. Dual spigots speed the water delivery into RV tanks and water haulers. Land owners have access to the well 24/7 as part of their ownership privileges within the ranch. The total price of this land is $29,500. With the minimum down of $2,950, the monthly payment is $245. All closing costs are included and the first land payment isn't due for two months. No qualifying seller financing with the 10% down payment is available to all buyers.
