This is your chance to own one of the few large-acreage properties available in the area. There is plenty of peaceful quiet, privacy, and room to roam on these 280 acres of gorgeous and varied high-desert land nestled up to scenic Black Mesa.
The property, which spans from the top of the mesa to across the valley floor, includes abundant cedar trees, limestone cliffs, volcanic boulders, and lots of petrified wood. The area is also strewn with artifacts from when the Anasazi’s lived here over a thousand years ago – including ornate pottery, metates, spear & arrow heads, there is even the remains of a kiva. From a later period, the wild west left its mark on this beautiful land with wooden corrals, an old loading chute, and a stone fireplace – remnants of cattle drives from the early 1900’s when the natural box canyon of Black Mesa made this an easy place to round up the range cattle for branding.
Amenities? How about: two site-built houses, 3 livestock barns, a 2000 sq. ft. metal storage/shop/garage, plus multiple other outbuildings. The property is fenced with both barbed wire and cattle panel and features numerous livestock pens, two solar wells into the Coconino Aquifer, two stock ponds, and a solar and wind power generating system built to supply a small commercial dairy!
The houses are situated to take advantage of late afternoon summer shade from the mesa yet enjoy full sun during the cooler winter months. The incredible sunsets range from simply beautiful to intensely aurora-like with vivid colors splashed across the whole sky.
So, get out of town and onto this peaceful, secluded, off-grid piece of American history – yet still with the benefits of the 21st century!
