Situated within a sweeping valley east of the Swisshelm Mountains and west of the Pedregosa Mountains and adjoined by beautiful Leslie Canyon, this 400 head ranch includes approximately 7,346 deeded acres, 4,240 acres Arizona State Grazing Lease, and 8,960 acres U.S. Forest Service Permit, for a total of 20,546 acres. A conservation easement is in placed on 7,032 acres of the deeded land. There are four homes at the headquarters. The owner’s home is a mud adobe house original to the ranch and tastefully restored with two bedrooms and a den which could be used as third bedroom, a modern kitchen, and a lovely Arizona room which overlooks the scenic 99 Bar. The manager’s home is a newer two bedroom, two bath home with a spacious, open floor plan and outstanding views. The guest house is a lovely two bedroom one bath historic rock home and the caretaker’s home is a double-wide manufactured home. Also included at the headquarters are historic barns original to the ranch, plus more recently constructed horse barn, workshop, equipment shed, and hay barn. There are two sets of shipping corrals with scales, one vintage corral original to the ranch and a steel set of more recent construction. Also featured at the headquarters is a large roping arena. The ranch is divided into 25 pastures and is well watered with dirt tanks, springs, wells and a looped pipeline system that waters all pastures except those in the farthest reaches of the ranch.
Set in the midst of beautiful rolling grasslands and mountains the 99 Bar has been successfully operated as a cow/calf operation, a yearling stocker operation, and, most recently, to develop replacement heifers. With limited rough country and well situated water, the ranch lends itself well to any type of cattle operation. The ranch ranges in elevation from approximately 4,700’ in the center of the ranch, to about 6,100’ at its boundaries and as a result has a very mild climate. The ranch is located east of Elfrida and north of Douglas, AZ.
Ranches of this caliber are hard to find and this is a rare opportunity to own one.
