Rio Verde Ranch - Yavapai County

The property is surrounded by Prescott National Forest and is bisected by the Verde River with approximately half a mile of frontage on both sides of the river. The property sits at an elevation of approximately 4,200’ and supports diverse flora and fauna.  Topography consists of enjoyable level wetland areas with riparian vegetation along the Verde River and rolling to steeper upland areas both north and south of the river with pinion and juniper grassland vegetation.  The buildings are set in an idyllic setting overlooking the river nestled up against the upland areas. 


Cherry Springs Ranch - Yavapai County, Arizona

Areas with riparian features represent a small percentage of land, especially in the arid southwestern US, yet the Cherry Springs Ranch has an abundance of it.  This is an easily accessible yet private property that is within about an hour’s drive of two of Arizona’s most populated metropolitan areas in Phoenix and Prescott.  The scenic setting along riparian lined Cherry Creek and the large year-round spring makes CSR a tranquil setting for either a recreational retreat or for full time enjoyment.  


Howard Mesa Ranch - Coconino County, Arizona

The Howard Mesa Ranch is located in great year round grazing country with a mild climate.  The grazing rights on the subdivision have been attentively retained with lot fencing requirements and easements to waters.  Interior ranch access is good on improved gravel roads.  There are not many residences built in the subdivision.  The water pipeline system is in good working condition which allows for good distribution of livestock throughout the range.


Hackberry Patented Mining Claim - Yavapai County, Arizona

The Hackberry Patented Mining Claim is completely surrounded by Prescott National Forest only a few miles off of Highway 69 near the Prescott Quad-City area.  The property was surveyed in 1893 and though inactive since the 1950s it was a significant part of the early Twentieth Century mining history in central Arizona.  Now you can own a piece of history.


87 Acres mixed used - I-17 & 260 - Camp Verde

This is a great opportunity with the property being in the most strategic location for commercial development in north central Arizona on the I-17 corridor between Phoenix and Flagstaff.  Most of this land is level usable land, flood maps do not show any flood hazards but there is a small wash bisecting it.  There are multiple access points to the property from established ADOT ingress/egress points on 260, including a right of way from the southern end across State Trust land that connects to the lighted intersection of SR 260 and Finnie Flat Road.



Granite View Ranch - Yavapai County

Granite View Ranch is 253.76 acres 14 miles northwest of downtown Prescott.  Buried electricity is available with multiple building sites throughout the property’s easy rolling topography.  There is remarkable views of Granite Mountain and the Mint Wash riparian corridor runs through the property.  Elevations are 4,800’ to 4,900’.  It has a 2,400’ boundary with US Forest Service and is arguably one of the most private locations in the Long Meadow Ranch subdivision.  There is a beautiful mix of vegetation with a few areas of open grassland in the draws but beautiful pinyon/juniper trees are predominantly throughout.

Trout Creek Ranch - Mohave County

This is an exceptional little ranch that has privacy, beauty, water rights and irrigated land. These amenities are becoming increasingly rare to find in Arizona.  TCR has one of the most economical irrigation sources that there is available, other than maintenance there are no costs or fees.  The turnkey ranch is being offered “as is” to a new owner who will be able to make this into their legacy ranch. 


FX Ranch - Yavapai County, Arizona

This is an attractive little ranch that is easily accessible from both Prescott and the Phoenix Metro area.  The current headquarters on 12.6 acres along the highway would make for an easily accessible full time spot for either owner occupancy or for a manager/ caretaker.  Although, these two homes are currently leased providing income to the ranch.  The 19.59 acre waterfall deeded parcel east of the headquarters is surrounded by the ranch’s state and BLM grazing leases.  It has unique riparian and rock features along Galena Gulch and would make for an excellent secluded and private home site.


Wildhorse Basin Ranch - Yavapai County

The Ranch lies in a scenic basin surrounded on the north, south, and east by mountains. The deeded land is strategically located on the west side of the basin controlling access into the interior of the property. Boulder Creek runs along the western side and thru the deeded land. This is a perennial creek with classic riparian vegetation.


Circle Bar Ranch - Maricopa County

The Circle Bar Ranch has been in the same family for over 100 years. With the diverse vegetation and size of the ranch, this is one of the larger sized ranches that is actually capable of running this amount of livestock. The ranch conveys with 100% of whatever mineral or water rights the seller actually owns. The seller and broker make no representation as to the quantity or quality of any mineral, other sub-surface or water rights appurtenant to the property. The information provided herein was btained from sources deemed reliable but is not guaranteed by the broker. Prospective buyers should check all the facts to their satisfaction. The property is subject to prior sale, price change or withdrawal.


Hassayampa River Ranch - Yavapai County

The Hassayampa River Ranch allows an owner to operate a small ranch in a very scenic and private setting that is not too far from Wickenburg.  Wickenburg, once called the “dude ranch capital of the world” is the oldest town north of Tucson.  It dates to 1863 when Henry Wickenburg discovered the Vulture Mine, the richest gold-producing mine in Arizona’s history.  The historic town has a population of over 6,400 and offers a relaxing western lifestyle with a full range of services.  With the amount of building improvements, there are many options that a new owner has with the ranch.  Also, the Hassayamapa River provides for excellent shallow water with an unlimited pumping supply.


Cross F & Diamond Ranchs - Sunflower, Maricopa County

If you are looking for an efficient sized ranch that is easy to get to this is the place for you.  The deeded land has great upside investment potential, forest inholdings such as the Cross F headquarters in a scenic and private setting with this type of access are virtually non-existent in Arizona.  The ranch is well watered and produces a tremendous amount of both perennial and annual feed with a good mix of browse, monitoring has shown forage production of over 900 lbs/acre in areas of this ranch. 


Music Mountain Ranch - Mohave County, Arizona

This is a desert to mountain ranch with very little adverse ownership within the ranch.  The ranch runs from the Hualapai Valley to on top of the Music Mountains/Grand Wash Cliffs where it borders the Hualapai Reservation as the eastern boundary.  Four of the deeded land parcels are complete BLM inholdings.  The headquarters are on a 150 acre inholding that is in a scenic and private setting at the base of the mountains.  Two parcels directly border the Hualapai Reservation and control BLM road access to the reservation and vice-versa to the BLM lands.  Elevations range from 2,750’ in the southwest end near Red Lake to 6,769‘ on Duncan Mountain, the headquarters are at 4,000’ the upper mountain country ranges in elevation from 4,700’ to 6,000’.  The lower elevation is extremely strong filare country with a mix of desert browses, the upper elevations have Pinon/Juniper and purple sage with perennials such as the typical gramma grasses.  The topography on the ranch lends to a lot of natural barrier with the exterior boundary as well as interior pasture boundaries.  There are older working corrals scattered around the ranch, the main corrals at the headquarters are wire and wood and are in good condition.


Red Rock Creek, 10 custom home lots with a historic home in downtown Sedona

The mesmerizing view from Red Rock Creek is a breathtaking 360° panorama of mountains and cliffs shaped from red rock stone.  The site also overlooks lush riparian filled Oak Creek just west of the property.  Red Rock Creek’s location in downtown Sedona allows walking convenience to dining and shopping, Tlaquepaque is just minutes away.  

The historic Gassaway House is located on one of the lots and is designated as a Historic Landmark by the City of Sedona.  The home was built in 1943 out of native red rock sandstone, Dr. Gassaway brought stonemasons from Italy to train more than 200 Native Americans to work on construction of the house and grounds.
