Ranch Description

Northern AZ Mesa Top Ranch

This scenic 39 acre property is situated high atop the Colorado Plateau in east central Arizona 30 minutes north of St Johns in Apache County. At 6,100' above sea level, the air is crisp and pure and the year-round weather some of the best in the southwest. Outdoor work is rarely curtailed due 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 within a day or two. The land is blessed with an average of 327 days of sunshine a year. The average high temperature in the coldest month of January is 50 degrees under sunny clear skies. Summer temperatures are mild with daytime highs averaging in the upper 80s. The summer lows average in the 70's. Summer temperatures see additional cooling with the arrival of the seasonal monsoon rains. Typically arriving in mid-July, these refreshing afternoon rains bring forth a profusion of colorful wildflowers and turn the ranch's lush native range grasses vivid green. Private wells are allowed. The land has a secure groundwater supply from its positioning over the massive Coconino Sandstone Aquifer In addition, a nearby free access well is available to the property owner 24/7 for water hauling.

The property has been surveyed to include three distinct topographical portions each connected to a towering sandstone mesa that rises above its acreage at the base of the mesa to the top of the mesa. Approximately two thirds of the land lies at the base of the mesa where a profusion of large boulders mix with grassy meadowland. Excellent cabin and RV sites are available throughout the heart of this area. As the property transitions from the bottomland, it rises dramatically over 100' to the top of the mesa where approximately 4 acres of land looks out over thousands of acres of uninhabited wilderness below. The uninterrupted views from this vantage point are sweeping and a rare find in rural land. The land has full solar exposure from all directions from any point within it. The property is within a short drive of Lyman Lake State Park and the Apache County seat of St. Johns, Arizona. St. Johns is a charming pioneer town founded in the 1870'S and serves today as the County seat of Apache County. You'll find everything you need for your rural homestead there including grocery stores, hardware stores, automotive stores, banks, restaurants, schools and churches. The 1,200 acre Lyman Lake is located 10 minutes south of St. Johns and features outstanding fishing, boating and hiking trails.

This is a very 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 quiet and peaceful 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 recorder's office. The residential, recreational and agricultural zoning allows livestock, camping and RV use at the owner's discretion. $55,000, $11,000 down, $477 month with no qualifying seller provided financing.
