Spring Valley Ranches, Kingman AZ

Spring Valley Ranches is located in one of Arizona’s most scenic areas, just off old Historic Route 66, near the town of Hackberry. Hackberry, in its hey-day, was a bustling cattle and gold mining town. Today, it is a tourist destination for those interested in revisiting and reminiscing about cross-country travel along old Route 66.
Spring Valley Ranches is nestled in the foothills of the pinyon pine-scented Peacock Mountains only 25 miles northeast of Kingman, Arizona. This scenic ranch was once a working cattle ranch that has been named after the abundant natural springs that are found on the ranch. Rich in history, Spring Valley Ranches’ natural springs provided precious water for native Americans, pioneers, and U.S. Calvary. 
Spring Valley Ranches comprises about 7,130 acres of private land. Parcels range in size from 5 to 97 acres. 

Wildlife abound on the ranch. Deer, elk, antelope, fox, coyote, javelina, bobcats, skunks, raccoons, and an occasional mountain lion can be seen in this pristine area.
Spring Valley Ranches is a perfect place for horse riding, hiking, bird watching, exploring, or simply enjoying nature. Many property owners have horses and enjoy an outdoor lifestyle. An 18-hole par 72 golf course is located about 12 miles away in the community of Valle Vista.
Many parcels have electrical service (provided by Mohave Electric Co-op) and telephone service (provided by Frontier Telecommunications). All parcels are suitable for alternative energy power systems, such as solar and wind energy systems. Portions of the ranch are served with cellular telephone service provided by companies such as Mohave Wireless, Verizon, Cingular, Cellular One, Sprint, etc.
Propane gas (LP) delivery is provided by several companies in the Kingman area, such as Northern Energy, Graves Propane, and Ferrellgas.
Water is provided by your own private well, hauling in your own water, or delivery by a private delivery company. Spring Valley Ranches was named for the many natural water springs located throughout the ranch. Additionally many good wells have been drilled throughout the ranch. 
Trash containers located near the entrance to the ranch are provided by a local co-op service for a nominal monthly fee.
Spring Valley Ranches experiences weather similar to Kingman, Arizona, except that temperatures are consistently about 5 degrees cooler.  Because Spring Valley Ranches is located in the Peacock Mountain Range, and at a higher elevation (4,000 - 5,400 feet) than Kingman, more precipitation and precipitation in the form of snow and freezing rain is typical. 
All of the parcels were professionally surveyed and staked, making clear identification of parcel corners easy.
All parcels have full physical and legal access by dedicated public or county roads.
Arizona is an open range state. This means that cattle pretty much graze where ever they prefer. It also means you may fence the cattle out of your property. Fencing must be suitable for this purpose.

Stagecoach Trails, Yucca Arizona Land

I have had the opportunity recently to sell a lot of land in the Stagecoach Trails area. This is the flat valley between Lake Havasu City and Kingman Arizona about half way between the two cities near the small town of Yucca Arizona. The views are stunning and the amount of land available at any given point is astonishing. Here you can find 40 acres for as low as $250 dollars an acre. There are approximately 2800 parcels in this subdivision that are 40 acres.

Joshua Trees abound on the properties here
Located in northwestern Arizona halfway between Kingman and the California border, Stagecoach Trails at Santa Fe Ranch is a rural ranch community of about 130,000 acres of land over a large and abundant aquifer. With its dry, desert climate, the property is situated at the base of the majestic Hualapai Mountains and features gentle sloping terrain that moves into some foothills and granite boulder outcroppings. Living here is not for everyone at Stagecoach Trails, most of the properties are off grid and one has to be self reliant to live here full time. Most landowners are absentee and have purchased as a secure investment, or use the properties for camping on. However this area still has some wonderful qualities including:
  • Its centralized location just under 30 miles from Lake Havasu City and Kingman as well as Needles, California
  • It is in close proximity to Las Vegas which is just over 120 miles away
  • Many properties have stunning views views of the mountains and valley
  • Fun recreation and outdoor activities within a short drive of the ranch including water sports and fishing at the Colorado River along the western border of Arizona and Alamo Lake with it's incredible fishing is a short drive south of the ranch.
  • A great year round climate with hunting, prospecting and hiking opportunities in the adjacent Hualapai and McCracken Mountains and the many federal lands that surround the community
  • Many of the properties have power lines extended to them
  • A plentiful water supply from the natural aquifer making it very possible for property owners to drill a well or install water tanks for their water supply, there is also a water haul company at Alamo Road and I-40 if drilling a well is not within your budget.

Kingman, the largest city closest to Stagecoach Trails, sits in the northwestern corner of Arizona and is the hub of Route 66 as it has the look and feel of a small classic Route 66 destination town from the 1950s-60s. It is an hour and a half drive to Las Vegas and only 200 miles north of Phoenix. Living at Stagecoach Trails at Santa Fe Ranch combines the best of the old west lifestyle with the conveniences of larger cities just a short drive away.

Ocotilla cactus are on many of the properties
