Farm Description


Set amid Payson Arizona's lush woodlands with towering National Forest mountains rising above it and the world famous views that define Northern Arizona all around it, this 80 acre estate is an unparalleled opportunity to own large ranch acreage, in a prime location, bordered on all four sides by the 2.9 million acre Tonto National Forest. Payson is located in north central Arizona within the largest continuous stand of Ponderosa Pine in the world only a 75 minute drive from metropolitan Phoenix and Scottsdale. At 5,000' the air is cool and clear year round. The winters in Payson are mild with occasional light snowfalls, while the spring, fall and summer months are warm and sunny bringing some of the best weather in all of the southwest. The property is a short 10 minute drive to downtown Payson and near the prestigious Rim Golf Club with its multimillion dollar homes and award winning Jay Morrish /Tom Weiskopf designed golf links.

The acreage combines a variety of terrains and landscapes and includes the ownership of over 2,600 feet of the perennially flowing Stewart Creek with its year-round producing spring. Approximately 20 acres within its western portion are comprised of rich level meadowland carpeted with a variety of native range grasses and colourful wildflowers. This acreage is ringed by high set building sites set amid spectacular boulder formations and mature evergreens. This acreage would be ideal for Equestrian facilities or organic orchards and vineyards. The balance of the lands northern half is a mix of mature evergreens rising throughout stunning rock and boulder formations above the valley floor. The waters of Stewart Creek divide this northern portion of the land from its heavily forested southern reaches. The land here is accented by verdant woodlands and sweeping views of the Stewart Mountains wilderness, Granite Dells and the Mogollon Rim.

Power service runs through the ranch and a spacious viewing gazebo with sweeping overlooks of the adjoining national forest wilderness. The previous owners were the Developers of The Rim Golf Club and numerous other projects around the Country. They submitted a 38 lot concept plat to the County Board of Supervisors. They secured approval for the development and the current zoning is R-1 PAD. The plat illustrates the positioning of 38 one acre high set cabin sites thoughtfully designed to blend seamlessly within the property's woodlands and rock formations. There is realistic potential from this land for the development of a premier residential community, church/childrens camp, corporate or family retreat.

A quiet and secluded estate of this size with the protection of a sprawling National Forest bounding it in all directions yet only minutes from one of northern Arizonas most sought after communities is a truly rare find in deeded land. Previously sold for $6,000,000, this beautiful land is now available at the reduced price of $2,495,000 Visit Call Marty Ryan for additional details or an appointment to tour the ranch. m
