Land Description

39 Acre Wilderness Ranch With Home

Bordered By Federal Lands

This is a truly remote getaway free of people, urban noise and ambient light.

This Scenic 39.18 acre turn key ranch secluded deep within a wilderness valley surrounded by towering mesas, verdant green meadows and evergreen wooded rock ridges. Located in east-central Arizona atop the scenic Colorado Plateau at a cool-clear 5,950' elevation, this completely fenced ranch is an extraordinary blending of terrains and landscapes. Outdoor work here 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. The land transitions from its heavily wooded high points at 5,950 down across a series of wooded terraces into approximately 5 acres of and grassy pastureland along its northern border and also into another approx. 3 acres of additional meadowland in its southeast corner. These lower portions of the property are mostly level and an ideal location for organic gardens, fruit tree orchards and the grazing of livestock. These meadows are blanketed with a lush selection of native grasses and colorful mountain wildflowers growing in a fertile sandy loam soil. Area growers yield abundant harvests of tomatoes, corn, peppers, potatoes, squash, beets, onions, lettuce, kale and many other vegetable varieties throughout the spring, summer and fall months. Apples, peaches, pears and cherries are other area fruit tree favorites. This acreage is a hiker's delight, where ancient Anasazi pottery shards and arrowheads that have lain undisturbed for over 1,200 years can easily be found. The property is bordered by 640 acres of uninhabited BLM land to the south and by an additional 400+ acres of private ranchland to the north. The immaculate - well built 1,920 square foot three bedroom and two bath home with a two car garage is totally off grid.

The property has its own private fresh water well with 3,000 gallon storage tank which can be supplemented by a rain catchment system that can store an additional 2,200 gallons. The well and all of its pumping apparatus is enclosed in a dedicated well house. A state of the art 3,000 watt solar power system with (12) 6V batteries and a full array of support apparatus powers the home and well. In addition, a 14-Kw Kohler backup propane generator is included with the property. The home can be heated by either its Napoleon wood burning stove or its Rinnae propane heater. A certified county approved septic system handles waste water disposal. Hardwood floors throughout most of the home lend warmth and beauty throughout. 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.

There is a complete list of many additional features available to qualified buyers. $385,900. Call John Heltzel at for additional photos, list of property features, and nearby town information.
