This is a fantastic opportunity to own 40 acres of wide-open raw land in Coconino County, Arizona at a rock bottom price. It’s the perfect property for getting away from everything and everybody, yet still being close enough to civilization for those times you want to see other humans. There’s not a neighbor in sight, yet you’ll be just 3 miles from I-40. From there, you can head east for a short 30 minute drive and stand on the corner in Winslow, Arizona. Flagstaff is less than an hour to the west and you can be in Phoenix (Arizona’s largest city) in around 3 hours.
Whether you prefer the desert or the mountains, you’ll have plenty of options for outdoor adventures. Barringer Meteor Crater is 9 miles away, Coconino National Forest is 60 miles away, Petrified Forest is 81 miles away and the Grand Canyon is 109 miles away. From the property, you’ll enjoy views of the San Francisco Peaks to the west.
Ready to build your homestead? This property is zoned for a single family dwelling, manufactured home or a tiny home on a permanent foundation. You may also use an RV or travel trailer as a permanent residence with a special permit.
Currently, there is no driveway to access the property but we had no problem driving across the barren land to take photos. However, a truck or SUV is recommended. You’ll have the option of building a driveway or trail along two different routes to the nearest road approximately 0.3 miles to the south. There is a recorded 15 ft right-of-way along neighboring parcels on both sides that is reserved for road access (see photos for additional information). However, driveways make it easier for other folks to find you so you may prefer to leave it as is.
Why Arizona? With over 250 days of sunshine each year, dry and sunny days are the norm. Its desirable weather is likely a big reason why Arizona is one of the fastest growing states in the country by population. You’ll never stop enjoying the clear blue skies in the day and the endless stars at night. Still not convinced? Here are 36 reasons why Arizona is a great place to live.
