Default 40 Acre Recreation Property Northern Arizona $20,000 updated with satellite/lot lines

EDIT 8-15-2019

Updated with satellite images and lot lines at bottom of OP

Yes you can shoot there!

Long and short range opportunities

I bought this with my wife before we had kids about 20 years ago.

We picked this lot because it had the best topography of all the lots available at the time.

There is a deep ravine with a wash that goes right through the lot. and it borders state land.

The improved road goes right up to a nice flat spot at the top of the property

Here’s the view from one side to the other


It is located within the Four Hills Ranch Property Association and you can find all their CC&Rs, Bylaws, Maps, etc at their webiste

http://4hrpoa.org/poa-documents/

Our annual HOA dues are $236 and that primarily covers road maintenance which, in my experience they've done a good job at.

We took a 28' motor home out there in October and got to the top of our property without any issues at all




Wildlife:
Lots of Elk but the unit is VERY hard to draw a bull tag. When I bought the property, deer tags were over the counter. Not sure the current status now. Lots of coyotes as well herds of wild burros. I have heard there are pronghorn on some of the patches of state land located within the association. (which property owners have access to)

It is located in Northern Arizona about 16 Miles north of the town of Williams
https://experiencewilliams.com/

It is roughly 1/2 way in between Williams and the Grand Canyon

Unlike California, property value is reassessed every year to calculate the tax bill.

Last year I paid $244.08

So total annual bills for me last year were $480.08

Only looking for cash, no trades and no seller financing at this time

$20,000

Full disclosure I am a licensed real estate broker here in California but not in Arizona.

This is my personal property and no agents are involved in AZ so for all intents and purposes this is a "For Sale By Owner" transaction

Thanks for looking



UPDATED PHOTOS

Here is a highlight of the property as well as the nearby state land. The whole area is "checkerboarded" like this with private property and state land.


Close up highlight of the 40 acre lot


A bit wider shot with a crudely drawn outline of the lot


The black circle is where the RV is parked in the pictures above


Topo view so you can get a better idea of the canyon running through the property

LOL I looked at land there about 20 ish years ago too.


Glad someone enjoyed it.

I remember the sales brochure showed beautiful trees, snow and deer. I guess I went there the wrong time of year.

No completely off the grid

Had cell reception with ATT where we parked. I’ve been told Verizon is much better

There are 1/2 dozen or so full time residents

One is down the road from us with a pretty slick set up.

Solar, rainwater harvesting the works

Was talking to the neighbor in October, she said they have been full time going on three years, have three 5,000 water tanks. Two for the house and one for irrigation. She said they’ve captured enough rain so far the whole time they’ve been up there and haven’t needed any water trucked in yet

No option for a well. Water table that close to Grand Canyon is about 1,500’

^ there are other lots for sale nearby in the same price range. Most flat and somewhat desolate.

Topography of this lot is ideal for target shooting, camping

I can PM coordinates for serous buyers

As far as subdividing, if I recall the lot can be split up into as many as four 10 acre parcels

Group buy?

That is a nice area. I was up there a few weeks ago the weather was great.



Too bad this is a little to far north for me. I am looking for property within 20 miles of Prescott maybe something in the 100 to 200 acre size range with no HOA's.

I believe water has to be trucked in, in that area.
OP, have you had a perk test done to se if the soil is comparable with a septic system?
How far out is the nearest power pole?

Thanks

I was looking on Twitter and there's a lot of parcels in that development and area and a lot of them are for sale.

I was just in that area a month ago if I ever get close again I will have to check it out.

Good luck with you sale...

This is what a full time set up looks like

Our neighbors have been living there full time for 3 years now.

She said they have three 5,000 gallon water tanks, all filled by rainwater harvesting from the roof and that they haven't had to truck in water yet.

Two tanks are for the house and one tank is for irrigation of the raised garden beds and landscaping

Husband is a retired solar engineer so I'm guessing their solar set up is top dollar

huntingsocal, I assume the full timers bought after you.

Some green thumb people are reclaiming deserts, can and will trees grow on your lot?

Lot has junipers and some pine trees

I am not familiar with these type of things.

If it is not comparable with a septic system, how to you deal with sewage waste etc?

10 acres is the minimum lot size allowed if subdivided. Potential is there to make four 10 acre parcels out of this lot

From the CC&Rs

Original Parcels may be subdivided up to three times, creating a maximum of four (4) Parcels, with a minimum Parcel size of ten (10) acres each.

All Parcels newly created by an Owner through subdividing an original Parcel must contain a minimum of 150' feet of road frontage on roads which have been previously dedicated to the Four Hills Ranch Property Owners Association by Declarant AND/OR on an easement created on Owner's original parcel for the sole purpose of creating said road frontage along the newly created Parcels


So group buy looks possible but would need to add some road

No shallow water. If you drill a deep well you should hit water just before the well reaches China (about 7,900 miles).

Not with that attitude!

The be clear, you totally could put in a well. It's just ... pricey. Hella pricey.

This property looks awesome. You're not looking to carry owner financing are you?
