Farm Description

This 38.03 off grid homestead is located in eastern Arizona at cool 5,800' elevation. The air at this elevation is crystal clear and the temperatures comfortable throughout the seasons. 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 80's. 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 residential, recreational and agricultural zoning allows livestock, camping and RV use at the owner's discretion. The land surface is blanketed with a fine tillable sandy loam soil, ideal for the raising of vegetables and fruit trees. Apples, cherries, plumbs, pears and a host of garden vegetables thrive in this soil. Area gardeners produce abundant yields of corn, tomatoes, carrots, beans, peppers, squash, and lettuce throughout the area's warm spring and summer growing seasons. The property contains a variety of terrains and landscapes. The land gently transitions from its paved highway frontage higher in elevation as it climbs past sandstone rock formations and rainfed arroyos. At its highest point this property takes in sweeping long range views of the surrounding wilderness mountains, mesas, and valley below. The land is well treed throughout with evergreen junipers and will easily support a wide range of trees including honey locust, scotch pine, blue spruce, Russian olive and Arizona ash to name only a few of the tree varieties that grow well in this area. Just past the property's western boundary, begins a 640 acre section of uninhabited State Trust land available for bunting with the proper hunting license and game tag. This region of eastern Arizona overlies the massive Coconino Sandstone Aquifer which is capable of providing a long term water supply from a private well should the buyer wish to drill one. In addition, two fresh water delivery stations in the nearby town of St. Johns are available to buy water from for only a penny a gallon. A great value. The residential, recreational and agricultural zoning allows livestock, camping and RV use at the owner's discretion. The land is not part of an property owner's association and has no Cc&R's. Access into the land is exceptional with its over 500' of County maintained road frontage. 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, pharmacy, 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. $52,000 No qualifying seller provided financing is available with $10,400 down and monthly payments of $505.
