Enjoy the sublime quietness/nothingness and unwind in the pristine near “virgin” Desert with sunny days and starry starry nights, clean fresh air, fresh delicious tasting water (this is where water tastes like wine !) yet all within Internet and Cellphone reach.
The following excerpt is our personal experience of living in this sublime reality.
Imagine: Awakening to the chirping of little birds flying everywhere. Then step outside, take a deep breath of fresh air and stretch out into wide open spaces. No distant traffic noise or landscaping blowers to disturb your relaxing morning as you sit down to enjoy the sunny ideal indoor-outdoor living climate. Unlike other higher or lower elevations, we feel that it’s never too hot or too cold for at least 9 months out of the year ! Then it’s the natural desert heat for the other 3 months, Here you have the option to sit in a tub of water or hook up to Electric (less than one mile away) and stay indoors with AC like the millions of other Arizonans do…because at this time it’s hot everywhere in AZ !
Do a little light exercise then pick some fruit from your mini-orchard and relax in your hammock. Where is everyone ? No one is around to disturb your peace as you melt into and become one with the earth landscape: Majestic mountains rise in the distance, watch the shadow of the clouds roll across the lush Desert Valley floor below (as this property sits in the foothills) and feel at home in the “Land before Time”.
Ssurrounded by pure nature ! Find comfort in the silence of the Earth and Joy in the music of the birds. Relax like never before in a Land before Time. And…on occasion, just when you think you are the only person on earth you hear the distant laughter as a group of horses with people in cowboy hats trot out from the closest neighboring Guest Ranch a half a mile away.
In the afternoon, explore the thousands of acres of BLM land located right out the gate of your back yard. Climb the Mountain Trail just a few miles back and search for Gold in the many washes (desert river beds) and rock canyons and crevices. Return home to tinker around on various projects; build sculptures, work on cars, play music in the large 50′ x 75′ x 16′ tall walls (with approx. 18′ at center) Metal “Workshop” Building. Or if you have parked your Motorhome or SUV and Boat on Trailer inside the Metal Building, there is still plenty of room on both sides for workshop and activity space.
Just before dinner, walk to your screen enclosed Greenhouse to pick fresh sweet peas off the vines and gather Basil and other fresh organic veggies to go with your Solar Oven cooked feast.
As the sun begins to set get out your camera to capture the endless variety of breathtaking color created in the big Arizona sky. No buildings to get in the way as you view in awe the spectacular sunsets and realize that this truly is a special place.
As the Moon rises out of the distant Mountains, build a bon-fire and sit happily around with loved ones and keep cozy warm as you share your life stories, sing songs, study astronomy or just sit back to gaze at the zillions of stars in the starry starry night sky.

Note from Seller:
“After experiencing the hard hard work and effort it takes to go from completely empty rural “Outback” remote land to making it comfortable enough to relax and enjoy the space, we have to say that this is an “Ideal Set Up” now. Now, anyone can be comfortable enough to ENJOY building their Custom Home or whatever else they like -OR- Bring their Motorhome and enjoy a Giant Spacious Workshop, comfortable indoor-outdoor living, beautiful views, wide open spaces, relaxing quiet, fresh air, clean own private well water & nature at its desert best !”
ps. “There are other 40 acre parcels throughout AZ… but most cannot compare to this Beautiful Unobstructed Foothill Mountain & Desert Valley Views now Ready Set to Enjoy this Sublime Survivalist “Escape from it all !” Gem in the Raw. Ready for the Self-Sufficient, Creative, Adventurous and Enlightened to truly ENJOY and experience the magical Desert at its Best as it still exists in the Land Before Time.”
Entrapeneurs, Vintners, Creative People and “Survivalists” :
This is ideal for someone to build a RETREAT CENTER or Winery or Custom Home or use as a “Survivalists’ Escape” (*these are just ideas…and the new owner may need to apply for Permits to do some of these ideas)
Make into a RETREAT CENTER : Simply cover the cement floors of the 50’x75′ Building with bamboo flooring and turn it into a spacious Yoga-Tai-chi-Meditation-Seminar Center (3750sqft), make the storage unit into a Commercial Kitchen (if allowed by County Permits) . Guests will be astonished by the extreme quietness and Meditators will have no distractions other than their own mind. This is an ideal location to create an extremely successful Workshop Center like the Esalen Institute in Big Sur. The Central Location makes it easy to draw in guests : just 3 hrs from Las Vegas, NV, 4 hrs from Phoenix, AZ, 9 hrs from San Francisco, CA and Albuquerque, NM, 5-7 hrs from Los Angeles, CA. (we love the location !)
Turn it into a Glamping Park Area: Did you hear of the latest trend in Camping ? It’s called “Glamping” which means “Glamorous Camping”. It may be possible to set up your own “Glamping Park” and get Permits to build a Commercial Kitchen so that you can offer Cafe Lattes and Espresso to the weary City Folks who come to experience the sublime silence of this magical desert and will still need their coffee after a late night viewing the unbelievable Starry Starry Night Sky.
For Vintners : Did you know… Grapes THRIVE in Arizona !
Plenty of room for the wine making equipment right in the big metal building…then..if you want that Tuscan Winery Up On the Hill “look” …just Straw-bale the outside of the Big Metal Building and it will be like the early days of Napa Valley with a great location to City Folks (from Las Vegas, Phoenix, Southern California & the Tri-state Area) who want to drive out of town for a day of Wine Tasting. Cheers !
For Creative People : Get in on the latest trend: make a “Container Home” with more room to store things in the 4′ x 45′ hallway on the side and additional usable space in the 14′ x 22′ “Breezeway” area. Enjoy the Warehouse Size Space to Create: Paint, Sculpture, Furniture Designers, Classic Car Restoration or for what-ever is your expression. Writers will find a place with NO Distractions, will get inspiration from the wide open spaces as they fall in love with the Earth and find truthful words gifted to them from the quiet unlimited spirits of the sky.
For Survivalists : Learn to live from the Garden & Fruits from the Trees and/or get permits to hunt in the vast BLM “backyard”. If you like, Store loads of food in the 8’x45′ (9’tall) Container. Invent & build things in the Grand Building Workshop Area.
Have fun as the World Turns !
For Snow Birds …just ready to Relax : Bring your Motor-home and enjoy a Giant Spacious Workshop… Big enough to drive thru and store your Prevost or Grand-sized 5th Wheel (when/if you’re not here) plus Enjoy this beautiful AZ land like it is your own Private Motorhome Park with Quiet Peaceful Privacy, Fresh Air, Fresh Water, Green Gardens, Sunny Days and Starry Starry Nights.
Wide open spaces to relax, work and play !
Tranquil, living back to Earth in the “Outback of Arizona”.
