Sierra Highlands Ranch - Wilderness Ranches

Apache County, Arizona


38.64 Arces

Deep within the northern reaches of a private wilderness ranch in cool clear northern Arizona is this outstanding 40.94 acre ridge top retreat now released for the first time for sale. This part of northern Arizona is a land of sweeping landscapes characterized by evergreen wooded hilltops, lush grassy meadows and stunning rock and boulder formations. Generations of Ranching families have coveted this land as some of the finest horse and cattle land in the southwest. It is a land of soft sandy loam garden and orchard soils, five nutrient rich native range grasses and abundant clean groundwater at affordable drilling depths. The property overlies the massive Coconino and Bidahochi aquifers. Wells drilled in this valley produce abundant yields of clean groundwater from well relatively shallow depths. The Arizona Department of Water Resources report on this area of Sierra Highlands Ranch indicates water tables in the shallower Bidahochi aquifer to range from 50 to 300 feet below the surface. Sierra Highlands Ranch property owners also have exclusive free access to the ranchs 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. This extraordinary piece of land is secluded atop a prominent hilltop with commanding views of thousands of acres untouched and uninhabited wilderness below. This is the highest set building site on the ranch with full solar exposures in all directions. Ownership of this land will provide a quiet-safe retreat far from urban noise, crime and pollution at a cool clear 6,200 foot elevation. The prime hill top cabin sites comprise approx. five acres in the property's eastern portion. From these high points, the land terraces down through approx. 25 acres of woodlands which then opens up into approx. ten acres of level open meadowland. Road access to this property is built and under a maintenance program assuring the new owners, their friends and family year-round access. Zoning allows residential, recreational, and agricultural uses. RVs are permitted anytime. Near the property is a quiet pioneer town founded in the 1870s. Ample shopping and services are available there. Ten minutes more to the south is a large fishing and boating lake. All property corners have been clearly staked by registered surveyors. The recorded plat map is available upon request. $34,900 with $3,490 down and monthly payments of $301 with no qualifying seller provided financing.
