NORTHERN ARIZONA HIGHLANDS RANCHES
Great opportunity to own one of the Kohlhase Ranch’s select 38 parcels or the ruggedly scenic 153 acre tract in the cool-clear highlands of northern Arizona. Once a part of the historic Kohlhase Ranch, these outstanding properties are available for private deeding for the first time. The land is set amid the beautiful Arizona and New Mexico border country where outstanding year-round weather, soft loam garden soils and an abundance of groundwater combine to provide the critical elements for self-sustained living away from the crime, pollution, and crowing of the city. At a cool and clear 6,100 foot elevation, 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. Total average snowfall over the past 30 years has averaged between 18 to 20 inches annually. The 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. Each of these properties border either BLM or State Trust lands. These vast wooded expanses provide a quiet and scenic backdrop to the land.
Ther is no homeowners association or restrictive covenants.
