20 ACRES, TONOPAH, ARIZONA
MARICOPA COUNTY, PHOENIX AREA
THESE TWO ADJOINING 10 ACRE PARCELS ARE ON THE WEST SIDE OF MARICOPA COUNTY, ARIZONA. THERE ARE A TOTAL OF 8 PRIVATELY OWNED 10 ACRE PARCELS IN THIS AREA, WITH THE BALANCE OF LAND IN EVERY DIRECTION OWNED BY THE U.S. BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT (BLM) FOR OPEN SPACE. BEYOND THE BLM LAND, AND DESPITE PHOENIX AND MOST OF ARIZONA BEING KNOWN AS A DESERT, THERE ARE VERY LARGE, LUSH GREEN FARMS AND RANCHES WITH FLOWING WATER WITHIN A FEW MILES.
These parcels are mostly flat, some rolling terrain with gorgeous views in all directions. Electric is just a few hundred yards from the property line. These parcels are about 20 miles from Gila Bend, Arizona. A picture of Gila Bend is included here (the one with the Burger King in it). The route to the parcel from Phoenix is primarily highway and paved roads. The last 7 miles to the lot is a gravel road through lush farm fields.
All of the photos here (except for the one if Gila Bend) are actual shots of the land in September of 2010. We camped for the night and had no problems other than a few coyotes in the distance. There are two main routes to get to the parcel from Phoenix, one through the real desert, which had extraordinary views and terrain, and the other on major highways including I-10, I-85, and I-8. The photo of the GPS coordinates is at the dirt road which leads to the parcel from S. Rocky Point Road. The lot is about a mile down the dirt road due West from those coordinates.
The closest City is Gila Bend, then Buckeye, and about 60 or 70 miles from the heart of Phoenix and the airport. For NASCAR fans, the Phoenix International Speedway is about 40 miles to the East. If we had more time we could have actually made it the whole way on quads staying on dirt roads!! A few casinos are also within about a 30 mile drive. These parcels would be great for a pool home, or getaway cabin. It has the feel of being out in the middle of nowhere, but civilization is fairly close by if needed.
A well and septic are needed for a home, electric is available, and the annual taxes are about $400.
The parcels are referred to for tax map purposes as County tax identification numbers is 401-83-003-A and 401-83-003-C.
Transfer will be made by warranty deed.
