Approximately 18 percent of land in the State of Arizona is privately held; deeded land is scarce and simply not as plentiful as in other western states due to the high percentage of government-owned land. A ranch the size of Bar Boot, offering 13,714± contiguous, deeded acres and including a combined total of 12,066± acres of leased land being presented to the market, is an absolute rarity. Located 21 miles north of Douglas and two hours southeast of Tucson, in the vast Turkey Creek watershed. The ranch is ideally situated on the east side of the Swisshelm Mountains and on the west side of the Chiricahua Mountains, and also adjacent to the Coronado National Forest and Chiricahua Wilderness Area.
The ranch has been expertly managed and the water resources have been extensively developed throughout the ranch. Including, thousands of gabions, hundreds of dirt tanks, strategically located water catchments, numerous ponds and several small lakes. The property possesses tremendous biodiversity ranging from Orvis endorsed quail habitat, extensive creek bottom, diverse topography, plentiful wildlife habitat, prolific rock outcroppings, six different soil types, a variety of grasses, and situated between two mountain ranges featuring multiple steep gradient drainages that directly feed the lower elevation bottom land. The land is characterized by a variety of oak species, old growth cottonwoods, sycamore, juniper, pinon pines, cholla and yucca cactus. Set in a dramatically scenic landscape, featuring panoramic long distance views, the land is extremely well protected, ideally located in its own sheltered and protected valley, ensuring the utmost privacy and seclusion.
