Beaver Dam Ranch - Approximately 2,000 gross acres of pristine development land situated on either side of US Interstate 15 in Beaver Dam, Arizona. This area is commonly referred to as the "Arizona Strip" which is located in the extreme northwest corner of Arizona. The ranch is about six miles north of Mesquite, Nevada and thirty miles south of St. George, Utah, and 85 miles north of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Site Features - The ranch site lays on terrain that gently slopes from north to south at about a 2% grade. There are no extraordinary surface geotechnical considerations. The soil is sand with mixed pebbles. Vegetation is minimal, which presents no abnormal grubbing and clearing considerations. There are no property access considerations.

Interstate 15 divides the land, with approximately two miles of highway frontage on either side of that highway. US Highway 91 parallels I-15 on the south portion of the ranch providing paved access to the south portion of the ranch. Paved and gravel roads are located on the north portion of the ranch.

The south portion of Beaver Dam Ranch - The southern border of the property, for the most part, overlooks the Virgin River from a bluff towering some 100 feet above the river. The Virgin River provides a natural green belt, which is the home of many local bird species and migratory birds. One might observe pheasant, quail, roadrunners, Canadian geese, migratory ducks, and an occasional wild boar in the green belt. The views from the bluff are extraordinary. The high mountains of the Piaute Wilderness area provide an exhilarating backdrop from the from the bluff. The land between the river and the mountains is federal land administered by the Bureau of Land Management, and it is unlikely that land will ever be transferred to private ownership.

The north portion of Beaver Dam Ranch - Federal lands border the entire west border of the property and most of the north border. These federal lands lay in the .Beaver Dam Slope Area of Critical Environmental Concern.. Needless to say, it is highly unlikely that this land will ever be developed.
