Congratulations to Andy Groseta with Headquarters West for his sale of 2,151-acre Long Meadow Ranch in central Arizona this week. This sale occurred on June 26, 2017, and was submitted through the Lands of America Comparable Sales program.
Located just over 20 miles northwest of Prescott, Arizona, Long Meadow Ranch grazes 200 head of cattle year-round on 2,151 deeded acres plus an adjacent Prescott National Forest grazing permit. The ranch is well watered, with a number of wells and a state-issued water adequacy certificate for development uses.
The ranch is home to one of Arizona’s premier antelope herds; chukar and pheasant have also been raised on the ranch. Black bear, mule deer, elk and turkey also frequent the ranch. The ranch was sold turnkey with livestock and equipment, as well as ranch management options in place for the new owners. Potential future uses for the property include as an executive retreat, full-time or recreational occupancy or as an investment options with substantial appreciation potential or from future development.
Comprising both the Prescott metro area and the western half of Sedona, Yavapai County regularly features among the top three counties in the country with the most new land listings for sale on the Land.com Network. With land here being relatively cheap and plentiful, the county is a popular spot for land buyers looking for recreational and residential real estate in the Sun Belt, not to mention land for future property development.
