Canyon River Ranch is located 6.5 miles west of Payson in Gila County, Arizona.  Access from SR 87 is by taking Main Street west which turns into Doll Baby Ranch Road (Forest Road 406).

The offering includes 115 of the 116 lots plus six common area parcels on a total of 158.12 acres for the Canyon River Ranch subdivision.  The 115 lots average 1.23 acres each, there is 8.97 acres of common area.

With the exception of 6/10ths mile and all-weather crossings at American Gulch, Doll Baby Ranch Road has been paved to the property.

Physical Characteristics
The property is surrounded by Tonto National Forest at an elevation of 3,600’.  Elevation is level to slightly rolling with a small drainage through the property.  The first phase with 16 lots has had roads, fencing and conduit installed. There is a 20,000 s.f. covered arena and 5,664 s.f. covered pavilion built on one of the common areas and a decorative water tank tower was installed by the entrance. There is a large water storage tank with pump house on one of the well parcels. Views of the surrounding Mazatzal Wilderness Area are astounding.

The property has Final Plat Approval from Gila County for the Amended Final Plat of Canyon River Ranch, according to Map No.’s 800A, 800B and 800C. Zoning is R1-D40, a 40,000 s.f. minimum parcel size. Gila County will not issue building permits for Canyon River Ranch lots until the all-weather crossing has been completed to county standards across American Gulch (just outside of Payson).

Canyon River Ranch was going to be sold as dry lots (each lot will drill individual wells) and individual septic tanks. Conduit was installed along Doll Baby Ranch Road when it was paved and throughout Phase 1, but no utility lines have been ran through conduit yet.

Payson and the “Rim Country” are popular destinations for both year-round and seasonal residences. But Payson’s growth potential is limited due to the limited supply of private land (surrounded by National Forest). Payson saw over 1% population growth to 15,944 residences and boasts a low unemployment rate of 3.8%.  Last year (2017) the Town of Payson issued 121 new single-family residential building permits, a 78% increase over the previous year. CRR needs a few finishing touches to sell the remaining 115 lots. This is a tremendous opportunity to roll out one of Payson’s largest subdivision’s in years.

$2,995,000 (reduced from $3,600,000) - cash or terms acceptable to the owner.
