Sun Valley in Arizona

Sun Valley, Arizona Near The Petrified Forest

 

Beautiful Property, Easily Accessible

 

 

Sun Valley is a picturesque area about 6 miles of Holbrook, which is the county seat of Navajo County.  Legendary old Route 66 runs right through the subdivision.  Sun Valley is easily accessed from Exit 294 (Sun Valley Exit) of Interstate Highway 40.

There is a scattering of homes, small businesses, and churches.  Near the exit are the Knife City Outlet, Valley Livestock Auction, Post Office, Sun Valley Volunteer Fire Department, and the Native American Christian Academy.

The Petrified Forest, a fascinating area of the Painted Desert, is near these properties. The mineralization and other geographic features of the area make for a unique and beautiful landscape.  From these properties you can look into the Petrified Forest and enjoy the beautiful views.

The properties we offer here range approximately from 1.25 acres to 10 acres.  They are mostly platted lots in the Arizona Rancheros subdivision, and also a couple 10 acre parcels just outside of the subdivision.  Every property has legally platted road access.  Some of these properties have electricity available, some are on the fringe of settlement.

In addition to the Petrified Forest National Park, there are dozens of square miles of BLM land nearby and much more than that of state owned land. This adds tremendously to your recreational opportunities and enjoyment.

You will be about an hour north of St. Johns and Showlow, which is the center of the White Mountains. Snowflake is only about 30 minutes away. The entrances to the Painted Desert and the Petrified Forest National Park are only minutes away!

In less than an hour's drive you can visit the Apache, Hopi, Zuni, and Navajo reservations. Also in less than an hour you can visit archeological sites, Zion Reservoir, the fabulous White Mountains and the Apache Sitgreaves National Park. The park offers forests, rivers, lakes, and streams, and is popular for hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, and many other outdoor activities. Homolovi State Park near Winslow will give you fascinating archaeological insights into local history. Just south of St. Johns is the Lyman Lake State Park with its 1,500 acre reservoir. There are no boat size restrictions and it is a great place for fishing and all types of water sports. St. Johns has one of the finest equestrian centers in the state and can entertain the real horse lover. The Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area near Show Low is a beautiful place for camping, fishing, picnicking, and boating. You will only be a few hours' drive from the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, Canyon De Chelly, Rainbow Bridge, Glen Canyon, and many more exciting places.

Holbrook offers all of the high quality facilities you could ask for. There are 3 community parks, a public library, museum, recreation center, swimming pool, 8 tennis courts, 8 racquetball courts, 6 softball fields, community centers, a golf course, bowling alley, shooting range, and the county fairgrounds. There is also an array of medical care facilities, schools, grocery stores, banks, restaurants, etc., as you would expect in a county seat. It is the economic hub for northeastern Arizona. Holbrook also has an airport with a 6,700 foot lighted runway.

Nostalgic Route 66 runs right through Sun Valley and continues through Holbrook  and beyond.  Holbrook and its local businesses have done a great job preserving this memorable road and its surroundings. There are gift shops, petrified wood shops, restaurants, and the famous Wigwam Motel for you to visit. One of the largest rock and gem shops in the country is Jim Gray's Petrified Wood Shop. There is even the Dinosaur Park here.

Holbrook sits atop the largest water aquifer in the state of Arizona and most of the southwest. The region has excellent air quality with very low humidity and averages 272 days per year of sunshine. Solar power is an excellent low cost choice in this area.  Approximately 5,200' elevation makes for excellent weather temperatures the year round. As the Navajo County Approved Comprehensive Plan points out, only 18% of county land falls under individual and corporate ownership. The rest is owned by Native American Reservations, the U.S. Forest Service, the Bureau Of Land Management, and the state of Arizona.

This small percentage of land available for private ownership is leading people to invest in the area. Recently a large wind turbine project was approved for north of town, and there are other wind farms in the county.

There is no requirement that you ever build. There are no association dues. Water would be by well if you explore that option with a local well driller, or by haulage. Sewage would be by septic - if and when you build. Cell phones work nearly everywhere out here.  Taxes are only about $10 per acre.  These parcels are zoned A-General, so single family homes, agricultural use, barns, and corrals are all fine. This is great country for horses.

You can build on your property, or just hold it for investment.  And while you're holding it in your portfolio you can vacation on your land, parking an RV there for up to 30 days per year while you enjoy this area that is so rich in natural beauty and history.
