Northern Arizona Wilderness Ranch With Greenhouse.
Tract 38: This very secluded 37.75 acre homestead with a greenhouse is located in the far northern reaches of a scenic highlands ranch in eastern Arizona approximately 30 minutes northeast of St. Johns. Founded in the 1870'S, St. Johns is the county seat of Apache County and although small, the community provides all of the things that a someone looking to supply a remote wilderness retreat would need. Grocery stores, pharmacy, automotive supply & repair stores, hardware stores, feed and tack stores restaurants, medical & dental services are all available in St. Johns.
Outdoor work is rarely curtailed on the land due to the weather at the land's 6,200' elevation. 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 normally melts into the soil within a day or two. The average high temperature in the coldest month of January is 50 degrees. Summer temperatures are mild with daytime highs averaging in the upper 80's. Summer temperatures see additional cooling with the arrival of the seasonal monsoon rains. Typically arriving in mid-July, these refreshing afternoon rains spark a profusion of colorful wildflowers and turn the ranch's lush native range grasses vivid green. Private wells are allowed. The land has a secure groundwater supply from its positioning over the massive Coconino Sandstone Aquifer. Drilling depths are economical and windmill pumping common throughout the area. In addition, a free access well located a short distance from the land is available to the property owner 24/7 for water transport back to the property.
The land is one the finest properties ever released in the ranch and combines the ideal blend of woodlands, open grassy meadows, rainfed arroyos and spectacular long range views from atop its high points. (See aerial photo) From these points, sweeping views down into the valley below and out across thousands of acres of uninhabited wilderness lands open up to the north, east & west. A cabin or RV that is positioned in these locations will command unobstructed views that can never be blocked.
Maintained bladed road access is constructed along the eastern border of the land, providing a variety of entry points from which to enter into the interior of the land. A carpet of green grassy meadowland transitions into areas of evergreen trees and elevated ridges shielding visual access into the land's most scenic building sites. The level grassy portion of the property is ideal for planting fruit tree orchards or grazing livestock on the property's native range grasses.
Included in the sale is a large well built green house. (Approximate measurements pending). Anyone looking to homestead quality ranchland will be able to grow and abundant harvest of a wide range of fruits and vegetables and extend their production from early spring and well into the winter within the warmth generated confines of the greenhouses. $56,000, $19,000 down with no qualifying seller financing, $368 month.
