Location and Access
The ranch is located in north central Apache County along US Highway 180 between St. Johns and Holbrook, Arizona and just east of the area known as Hunt, Arizona.  The property is located on both sides of US 180 with the building improvements being on the north side of the road approximately ¾ of a mile off the main road.  Access is provided by US 180 northwest from St. Johns approximately 12 miles.  The property includes over one mile of paved frontage along both sides of US 180.

Property Description
The ranch is generally rectangular in shape being three miles from north to south and one mile wide including a total of 1,173 deeded acres.  The building improvements are situated at 5,480 feet in elevation with the ranch ranging from 5,440 on the northern end to 5,600 on the hillside south of US Highway 180.  Building improvements include a single family residence constructed in the 1950’s with an addition done in the 1980’s.  The house is of wood frame construction on concrete foundation and floors in fair condition.  There is an attached 2 car garage.  The house has not been lived in for many years and the house is considered to be in disrepair.  Vegetation is generally open grassland with some scattered junipers throughout.  There are a few scattered fruit trees in the yard around the house and a small 1-2 acre irrigated field directly northeast of the house which is currently planted with improved pasture for grazing.  There was an old apple orchard located on the northeast edge of the ranch which has not been farmed in many years.  All of the orchard trees have died.  Remnants of the old trees, fencing and irrigation ditch are still present.  There is also 320 acres of grazing land which is leased from the Zuni Indian Tribe.  The property is directly adjacent to the subject on the northern boundary and provides a good source of additional livestock forage.
