The Ranch - 280 N. 18th Place, Show Low, AZ
Situated on the bluff with panorama views of the beautiful valley and skyline of Show Low beyond. During warmer months, horses, llamas and cattle graze in pastures on lush meadow grass. The view is lovely. Three fishing lakes are within an 8 - 10-minute drive from the Ranch.
We originally purchased the 2800 SF ranch house on 9 acres, including 6 acres of irrigated pasture (part of the gorgeous valley that runs through Show Low), to retire to - so far this has not happened. Extensive renovations took place, some of which were to create the ultimate in "open concept living” resulting in an enormous living room with exposed rock fireplace, ALL open to the spacious kitchen and dining room =great living space for large groups. The large master bedroom has a full bath, recently tiled. At the other end of the house are 3 more bedrooms, one of which has a 3/4 bath.At the front of the house is a flagstone patio with BBQ - just step out the door to get to the Barbie. A covered wooden deck, with views of the property, is off the south side of the house and another covered porch/patio is off the west side. There are 2 more terraces with patio tables and chairs --- all having wonderful views of the property,valley and panorama skyline to the west with amazing sunsets.

Local History: Between the base of the bluff and the pastures is a lane which was the old stage coach road. The stage coach traveled from Holbrook to White River. The first stop for weary travelers and horses was at a little house called the White House - located at the top of one of our pastures. After a good night's rest the horses were hooked up to the stage coach, the people climbed back in and they continued their journey through Pinetop and then on down to White River. The Show Low Historical Museum offers a video of the settlement of Show Low and our ranch is featured in the video. The museum is located on the main street, Deuce of Clubs, across from the Sonic Drive-In.
The biggest highlight for our guests, especially children, is feeding the horses and llamas. Feed "Carrots Only" and be sure "No Fingers are Sticking Up --- PLEASE!! For your safety, our guests are restricted from entering barn and Santa Fe railroad car unless owner is present. Do not open pasture or barn gates. We come to feed 2x's a day and invite you, at this time, to come down and lend the cowboy/cowgal... helping hand.
