Property Description
The Dutch Mountain Ranch contains no building improvements and consists of a checkerboard land tenure of Arizona State Trust land and open range surface grazing. The property is boundary fenced with the entire ranch being operated as one pasture. The deeded land lies just outside the ranch fence line on the northeast corner of the ranch and is accessed via a fenced lane from the corner of the ranch. The deeded land has great access approximately one mile south of State Highway 61 and includes electrical service along the western edge of the property. There is a domestic/livestock well located in the southeast corner of the deeded land. The well has an electric meter and is run by an electric submersible pump. Dutch Mountain is the large geographical feature in the area and lies in the middle of the ranch with an elevation over 7,100’. The open range subdivision grazing lands are intermixed with the state sections and have scattered parcels with a few houses on the property. These lands are available for grazing until the property owner chooses to fence their property. The main livestock water and corrals are located near the center of the ranch on an Arizona State Trust section on the southwest flank of Dutch Mountain.
