Cochise County in Arizona

Beautiful Residential Lots In Sunny Arizona

 

Gorgeous Mountain Views In Sulphur Springs Valley

 

The Arizona Sunsites and Sunsites Ranches subdivisions are located north of Douglas and south of Willcox in the Sulphur Springs Valley in Cochise County. The views of the nearby Chiricahua Mountains, Swisshelm Mountains, and Dragoon Mountains are amazing.

Nearby small towns are Sunizona, Elfrida, McNeal, and Cochise. The larger city of Douglas is south on Highway 191.

The Coronado National Forest, covering approximately half a million acres, is located on both the east and west sides of the valley. You may enjoy mountain bike riding, hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, boating, canoeing, horseback riding, ATV riding, sightseeing, and just plain relaxing. There are many natural wonders to visit in the county including the spectacular Chiricahua National Monument, Cochise Stronghold, Coronado National Memorial, Parker Canyon Lake, and several nature conservancies boasting some of the best bird watching in the west. You can enjoy a round of golf at the City of Douglas Municipal Golf Course.

This area was a big part of the "Wild West". The legendary town of Tombstone is about 30 miles to the west. You can visit the actual site of the "Gunfight At The OK Corral", and other local historical sites. Near Douglas you can visit the John Slaughter Ranch Museum, and Skeleton Canyon which is where legendary warrior leader Geronimo surrendered. Cochise Stronghold, mentioned earlier as a place of natural beauty, was the base of operations for yet another legendary warrior leader, Cochise.  Kartchner Caverns State Park is among the county's renowned attractions.  There are museums, and some excellent restaurants in the cities of Sierra Vista, Bisbee, and Willcox.  In recent years some excellent wineries have appeared in the county.  There are ghost towns that you can explore.

These subdivisions are bordered by farms, ranches, and state land. Cochise County's economy is mostly agriculture, ranching, mining, and tourism. The primary irrigated crops are cotton, wheat, corn, grain, sorghum, and alfalfa hay. There are also apples, peaches, cherries, grapes, pistachios, pecans, lettuce, peppers, and other vegetables. There are many vegetable farms and orchards where you can pick your own produce.

The elevation of these properties is over 4,300 feet which makes for ideal temperatures, running about 10 degrees lower than in Phoenix and 8 degrees lower than in Tucson. Summer average highs are 90 to 95 degrees and the winter averages are about 60 degrees. There are about 11 inches of rain per year. This ideal climate attracts many "snowbirds" and retirees.

The city of Douglas has a population of over 17,000. Willcox has about 3,800 people and the county has about 125,000. Douglas has all of the modern amenities you would expect along with shops, museums, restaurants, and great people.  The largest city in the county is Sierra Vista with a population of over 45,000 and the County Seat is Bisbee.

Cochise County is a great natural refuge.  There are over 400 species of birds, which is a testimony to the variety of natural habitats in the county.  If camping, RVing, hiking, or mineralogy are things that you enjoy, then this is the place for you.  The night sky is so clear that there are an abundance of observatories in the county.  

Only 42% of the land in Cochise County is privately owned. The U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau Of Land Management own about 32 percent of land in the county, and the state of Arizona owns approximately 35 percent.  Huge acreages are set aside as nature preserves.  The county's population has grown over 20% in the past 10 years. This might be time to think about investing if you haven't already done so, while prices are still at this rock bottom level. Most of the already developed areas of southeast Arizona, like Tucson and Sierra Vista, are getting full and are seeing zero growth policies started. The influx of people will need to go somewhere.

Cochise County is tiny home friendly.  They have adopted Appendix Q (Tiny Homes) of the 2018 International Residential Code.  Camping and RVing are not allowed on these properties.  You can get a temporary RV permit if you are in the process of building a residence.  Street addresses are assigned by the county with building permits. 

Power is close to but not at these properties yet. The Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative generally provides a generous construction credit to supply power to a residence, you can ask them about specific properties. If you would rather join the solar revolution, there is hardly a better place for it, as there are an average of 285 sunny days per year. The local telephone supplier is the Valley Telecom Group, you can contact them about a specific property. AT&T's online cell phone coverage map shows solid coverage throughout the area, and Verizon's coverage map shows solid coverage almost everywhere. Water would be by haulage, or by well if you want to explore that option with a local driller. Sewage would be by septic, if and when you decide to build.
