Quiet Secluded High Country Arizona Ranch
This beautifully forested 38-acre ranch estate is set amid towering ponderosa pine woodlands in the foothills of Arizona’s recreation rich White Mountains at a cool-clear 7,700’ elevation. Located midway between Vernon and Greer Arizona, the land combines the ideal blending of mature pines with areas of meadowlands carpeted with native high-country grasses and mountain wildflowers. The land gently rises in elevation as you enter the property through approx. 8 acres of lush meadowland. After transitioning through the meadow, the property begins to rise above the valley floor into rich stands of Ponderosa pines, oak and juniper. The acreage’s gentle contours provide multiple building sites throughout the property, each with sweeping views of the surrounding wilderness. The land controls over 1,600’ of Sitgreaves National Forest frontage. Further land division of the land is available for investment or estate planning purposes. Recent sales of 10 acre splits in this community have been in the $225,000 range.
