This is a nice, square, level 2.5-acre parcel about 30 minutes off the highway. Situated near the north end of this subidivision, you’ll get the privacy and peace you’re looking for. The easiest way to access lots in this area is via Sheri Rd, a large gravel road on the east side. Dirt roads split off of that to provide access to various properties, but we have not verified that there is an existing dirt road to this lot. Due to the level terrain, traversing the area isn’t difficult and creating a dirt road to your new lot, if needed, would be fairly easy.
Your new property is in the heart of Arizona’s Painted Desert. This beautiful piece of the American Southwest, just off Route 66, features excellent panoramic views and an abundance of privacy. If you like to get outdoors and enjoy the sunshine on quiet afternoons, this area can’t be beat. Use the property for occasional camping or make long-term plans to build an off-grid home. This parcel is a great low-cost option to get started! With few restrictions and no timeline to build, you have the freedom to use the land on your terms.
Just a couple exits down the highway is Holbrook AZ, a town of about 5000 people, rich with history. The Holbrook area was inhabited first by the Anasazi, then Puebloans, then the Navajo and Apache. In 1540, Coronado searched for the Seven Cities of Cibola and camped some sixty miles east of Holbrook. Coronado sent an expedition west to find the Colorado River, and they crossed the Little Colorado about twenty-five miles east of Holbrook and found a wonderland of colors they named “El Desierto Pintada” – The Painted Desert.
The Petrified Forest National Park is just east of this parcel and features some excellent hiking. There are numerous popular trails including the Blue Mesa Trail, Painted Desert Rim Trail, Devil’s Playground Loop, and many others. If you’d like to drive a little further, the Grand Canyon is only 3 hours to the northwest, the iconic Oljato-Monument Valley is about 3 hours north, and the Homolovi Ruins are just an hour west.
