Land Description

Outstanding 38.27 acre northern Arizona wilderness homestead set amid stands of native evergreens and lush grassy meadows in the cool highlands of northern Arizona Colorado Plateau. The property is the perfect blend of wooded building sites interspersed with lush grassy open meadows. The soft sandy loam soil that covers the land is ideal for the planting of vegetable gardens and fruit tree orchards. Area growers enjoy abundant yields of a wide range of summer vegetables including lettuce, peppers, corn, peas, tomatoes, zucchini and carrots to name only a few. Fruit trees varieties that do very well here include apples, peaches, pears plums and apricots. The property lies at a cool-clear 6,002' elevation. In this highlands region of northern Arizona, this does not mean hard cold snowy winters. 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 average high temperature in the coldest month of January is 50 degrees under clear sunny skies. Summer temperatures are mild with daytime highs averaging in the upper 80's and dropping into the 60's at night. The topography of the acreage is gentle throughout. An outstanding selection of building sites stretch across the brow of an elevated ridge that runs north to south through the center of the land. Cabin decks and large picture windows will look out over thousands of acres of uninhabited wilderness free of urban noise and lights from these high set building sites. The land is predominately comprised woodlands with a few small pockets of meadows opening up within them. These scattered meadows comprise approximately 10 acres in total of the overall ownership. Several shallow rain fed arroyos course through the land proving pathway for the resident herds of elk, antelope and mule deer.
