PRICE REDUCED! Historic Z Triangle Adobe Ranch House. Built in 1926 and remodeled/restored with the period in mind by the current owner, this 1,720 square foot, 2 bedroom/2 bath, home with den and full-length covered, screened front porch is filled with rustic, romantic charm. Set in the Canelo Hills, the home has unobstructed views of the Huachuca and Mustang Mountains. Nature Conservancy land borders the 13.3 acre property, giving the feel of a larger property and securing the privacy and views of the property.

Included on the property are multiple, well-maintained improvements. The 2-bedroom, 1 bath Guest House could work well for a caretaker and is currently being used as a long-term rental. A 1-bedroom Apartment, with kitchen, is attached to the 5-car garage. A newer 1-room cabin was built for an office but has also been used as an extra bedroom. The original ice house and well house provide room for storage.

Central to the charm and romance of the property is the traditional red wooden barn. With the original horses' nameplates still on the stalls, the well-maintained 8-stall barn is functional, as well as beautiful. Additional paddocks and shade structures allow room for horses and other livestock. Several fenced garden plots, chicken coop, and other pens also reflect the self-sufficient, rural lifestyle.

Adjacent, approximately 11 acres of vacant land - with drilled, capped well - is also available from separate Seller for additional $120,000. This parcel is currently fenced with primary property. These two parcels work well together to allow room for pasture grazing and maintain the privacy and seclusion important to the rural way of life.

Ranging in elevation from just under 5,000, to 5,400+, the region is considered semi-desert grasslands with wooded uplands. Historically run as ranchland - cattle ranching is still a major local industry - the Canelo/Sonoita/Elgin area has also developed into one of Arizona's prime wine producing locations. The local vineyards are active and draw tourists for wine tasting tours and festivals throughout the year. The Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds is set in Sonoita and has an active calendar which includes the county fair; a PRCA rodeo; live and simulcast horse racing on the weekend of the Kentucky Derby; the annual Quarter Horse show; and other festivals, activities, and equine events throughout the year. This area is also on the migratory path of many species of birds and is well-known and popular with the birding enthusiasts.

With the edge of Tucson located approximately 40 miles to the northeast of the main intersection of Highways 82 and 83, the Sonoita/Elgin area has drawn retired professionals and commuters to the community seeking the relaxed, rural lifestyle not available in the city. Tucson is the second largest city in Arizona and offers easy access to major medical services, the University of Arizona, Tucson International Airport, museums, Davis-Monthan Airbase, shopping, and a variety of entertainment and restaurant options. The Z Triangle Ranch lies approximately 20 minutes from the intersection of Highways 82 and 83, and is also conveniently located for access to the West Gate of Fort Huachuca. Local residents have the ability to apply for permitted access through Fort Huachuca to Sierra Vista, making general shopping and medical care about 30 minutes away. The property is also located less than 15 miles from Parker Canyon Lake, a 130-acre lake offering fishing, camping, hiking, and boating opportunities.
