The elevation of the property is 6,973’ where the air is clear and the weather enjoyable year-round. 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 80s. The summer lows average in the 70’s. Summer temperatures see additional cooling with the arrival of the seasonal monsoon rains. Private wells are allowed without permitting requirements. The land has a secure groundwater supply from its positioning over the massive Coconino Sandstone Aquifer. The land is covered with a thick mantle of soft sandy loam soil ideal for organic orchards and vegetable gardens. Area growers produce plentiful harvests of tomatoes, corn, potatoes, lettuce, peppers, apples, peaches, apricots, and pears along with a host of additional garden varieties. The land has been surveyed in a square shape and is usable throughout. Three gently terraced rises cross through the property offering a wide selection of building/RV sites, each with long range views of the surrounding countryside. About an equal portion of the acreage is woodland and meadowland. Privacy is enhanced by the property’s alignment with 1,280 acres of adjoining State Trust Lands. These beautiful woodlands provide a quiet and very scenic backdrop to the land. A small rainfed arroyo crosses through the southeast corner of the land adding additional interest. The residential, recreational and agricultural zoning allows livestock, camping and RV use at the owner’s discretion. $44,900 with $11,500 down, $596 mo.
