Property Description

Property Description

The subject property is a 9.5 acre lot located along Bluebird Drive in Escudilla Bonita Acres, a rural-residential subdivision situated along the Arizona border twenty minutes east of Springerville.

Roughly translated as “beautiful bowl” this border community gets its name from its position at the base of the numerous mesas which tower above it. While most properties are located within the “bowl” area of the development, a few parcels are located high above atop the mesa, overlooking the community and boasting stunning views of eastern Arizona.

The subject parcel is one such property.

Legal Information

Legal Description: Escudilla Bonita Acres, Unit 3, Lot 276

Parcel Number: 3123012265020

Account Number: 9685

Annual Taxes: $145.00

Access & Utilities

Roads & Access: The subject property is located along Bluebird Drive. Like all of the roads in this subdivision, Bluebird is a well-maintained dirt and gravel road which should be easy to navigate in most vehicle types. It should be noted, however, that while most of the roads in the subdivision are in good condition, Corner Drive, which is the road that ultimately climbs the southern end of the mesa and leads to the subject property, is steep and one which is best approached in a larger truck or off-road capable vehicle.

Roads & Access, Cont'd: While the subject property is located roughly thirty minutes southwest of Quemado, access to the subdivision can not be found on the New Mexico side of the border and anyone approaching the property will either need to drive east from the Arizona side or double back from New Mexico into Arizona along Highway 60.

Power & Utilities: As is common throughout Escudilla Bonita Acres, residential power lines and underground utilities can be found running along Bluebird Drive at the subject property as well as servicing a number of developed home sites. Because of this, it should be neither difficult nor expensive to get service connected to whatever you decide to build on the land. Anyone looking to investigate the costs associated with connecting service on the subject property is encouraged to contact Navopache, the local utility servicing this region.

Water Service: While some of the properties in this subdivision have wells, holding tanks seem to be a common option. Given this property's location at the top of a mesa, however, drilling for water is likely infeasible or prohibitively expensive. Because of this, anyone looking to develop the property is encouraged to investigate alternative water sources or bulk storage methods.

Zoning & Restrictions

Zoning: Catron County is one of the few New Mexico counties that has no formal county-wide zoning ordinance and defers instead to towns, municipalities and owners' associations within its borders to make and enforce their own rules. Because of this, the only "local" regulations specific to this region would come either from an Association or from the covenants and restrictions on file for the subdivision.

HOA: Escudilla Bonita Acres has three Units of land. Unit 1 has a formal Homeowner's Association. The subject property, however, is in the less formal Unit 3. While this Unit is supposedly subject to the control of a separate Association, there's little to suggest that many rules are being created or enforced. In addition, whatever form this Owner's Association takes, they do not have a website or a Facebook page. This further suggests they are an Association in name only and land owners are unlikely to be subject to many rules or restrictions.

Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions: When Escudilla Bonita Acres was first subdivided, the developer drew up a set of covenants and restrictions to run with the land. While most of these are what we like to refer to as "reasonable, good neighbor restrictions" dealing primarily with the disposal of trash and prohibitions on excess noise, there are a few covenants that deal with acceptable structures or use of the land. Because of this, anyone considering purchasing the property is encouraged to review the Escudilla Bonita Acres Covenants and Restrictions document linked here.

Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions, Cont'd: Notable restrictions enumerated in the above linked document include: Lots may not be used for commercial purposes; Skirting around manufactured or mobile homes is "recommended"; No motorized motor cross course may be permitted on any lot.

Editor's Note: The above-linked covenants and restrictions document is one of the least detailed we here at Hemingway Land have ever encountered. Documents like this will typically enumerate acceptable types of structures, minimum square footage for those structures, timelines for building as well as how long, if at all, a property can be used recreationally. This document neither addresses nor prohibits any of those things. This, in combination with the relaxed County zoning as well as the Owner's Association with little online presence, suggests that few restrictions exist or are being enforced here. This further suggests that the land would be ideal for unconventional structures difficult to get permitted elsewhere such as tiny homes, shipping containers, earthships and yurts. In addition, one can also conclude that RV camping for prolonged periods of time would not be met with serious opposition.

Misc

Mesa-Top Property With Stunning Views: It’s worth noting that during the time we’ve been in business, we’ve had properties that sit atop mesas and we’ve had properties with beautiful views. That said, we have never had one sitting atop a mesa along the ridgeline and overlooking the entire valley, if not the entire eastern end of a state (imagine the sunsets!). This property is unique in this respect as well as the fact the entire 9.5 acres are situated atop the mesa on flat, easy to develop land. Put another way, half the property isn’t positioned on an unbuildable cliffside. Furthermore, the lack of restriction found in this area suggests limitless possibilities for how the land is eventually developed. In the world of affordable vacant land, this parcel is a rare find and one we’re especially proud to offer.
