Property Summary

This property is located in Cedar Hills Unit 5 near Cherrys Road & Route 2007 in St. Johns, AZ. Only about hour to the New Mexico border to the East. Just 70 miles to Gallup, NM where you can find big box stores like Walmart, Home Depot and others. If local fare is more your style, you can go to nearby Chambers, Sun Valley, Holbrook, or Joseph City to get your supplies or a meal at one of the many local restaurants. Make sure to swing by Witch Well Tavern which is just East of this area 30 minutes on County 7230 Rd to meet your neighbors.

Some may consider this the middle of nowhere but it is only about 15 miles south of Interstate 40! Camp or build your getaway home and enjoy all the attractions of northeastern Arizona, including the Petrified Forest National Park and Painted Desert which are very close and filled with native ruins and artifacts to explore!

There is plenty to do in the area. The famous Petrified Forest National Park about 8 miles to the West, which is known for the ancient fallen trees, beautiful rolling hills and natural vast landscape and wildlife. Stewarts Petrified Wood stop and the Painted Desert Indian Center are also in the area. If you enjoy hiking, boating, water skiing or other outdoor activities you can head south about 80 miles to Lyman Lake State Park. The lake offers launch ramps and a boat dock. There are no boat size restrictions. Water skiing in uncrowded surroundings, wind surfing, sailing, and swimming beaches offer water enthusiasts a wide range of activities. Great fishing, along with hiking trails (including one that takes you on a petroglyph tour) are appealing to outdoor enthusiasts. Full service RV hook-ups, and campsites with showers and restrooms are available. A herd of buffalo roaming over 100 acres of rolling hills are one of the unique attractions you will find at Lyman Lake State Park.

Don’t pass this opportunity to grab this 5 acre (or 10 acres if you want the adjoining parcel also) parcel of land in beautiful Apache County. The property is a nice sunny spot for a getaway in the White Mountains (the second highest mountain range in Arizona). A perfect remote opportunity for off the grid living. With 275 days of sunshine, install your solar system, drill a well and relax. Ideal property for hunting, four wheeling, livestock, exploring, etc.

Looking for more land? I have the adjoining property to the east available as well for a total of 10 acres. This properties western edge borders an Indian reservation.
