CK Ranch at Mahan - List of Property Features
Our 75-acre ranch, located near Happy Jack, AZ, sits in the mountainous, lushly forested portion of northern Arizona, with ponderosa pines, fir, aspen, oaks and an abundance of natural forest beauty. Situated along the eastern slope of Mahan Mountain, the property represents approximately one-half of the historical 160-acre Mahan Ranch, which was established by the Mahan family in the 1880s, and which today is completely surrounded by the Coconino National Forest. Our ranch is completely utility- independent, powered by solar power with generator backup, and propane for heating. An independent well provides water for the ranch. With more than 5,000 combined sq ft of livable space, the property includes 3 log cabins, 5 bunkhouses, a beautiful 6-stall horse barn, and a large garage/workshop building. All 3 log cabins boast a magnificent view of the large, open meadow, perfect for grazing horses, and from which one has a clear view of Mahan Mountain. A description of each cabin follows:
Main House 2,452 sq ft of livable space, built in 2002, includes 1 large master bedroom with full bath, 1 large, open loft which easily could be split into two bedrooms, a living room-dining room combination, open kitchen that separates the living-dining room from a great roomcomplete with stone fireplace. There is a 2nd full bathroom, and a separate laundry room with lots of space for storage. The main house, completely custom-built with plenty of unique features, was constructed with a solid D- log exterior, pine tongue & groove interior, metal roof, slate tile flooring in the kitchen and great room, solid cherry flooring in the living-dining room and master bedroom, and carpeting in the loft. A large covered patio in front of the house provides a great view of the meadow, and a second covered patio in back looks out onto National Forest. Both patios have slate tile flooring; additional flagstone walkways and open patios surround the house on 3 sides. The house is solar-powered and also has two 500-gallon propane tanks that serve both the main house and guest house for heating; the main house and guest house each have their own septic system.
Guest House With 750 sq ft of livable space, this house of solid log construction was built in 1906 and refurbished in 1999. It has 1 large open great room with a modernized wood-burning fireplace. The full eat-in kitchen and a full bathroom were added on in 1999, built with shiplap exterior siding, pine tongue & groove interiors, and a metal roof. Also in 1999 solid maple flooring and Andersen windows were installed throughout the cabin.
5 Bunkhouses The property includes 5 charming bunkhouses all situated just beside or behind the main house. The bunkhouses each have approximately 120 sq ft of livable space, were reconstructed around 2001 with shiplap exterior siding, pine tongue & groove interiors, metal roof, solid maple flooring, and Andersen windows. The bunkhouses all come furnished with 2 twin beds (cherry pedestals with storage drawers underneath), side table and chair.
"Kenny Cabin" A third cabin sits separate from the main house and guest house, and is named for an earlier owner of the ranch. The Kenny cabin is a rustic, solid log-constructed cabin built in the
1970s which provides 1,292 sq ft of livable space, including one large great room that originally included a kitchen built into one corner, 2 bedrooms, 1 bath with clawfoot tub, and an open loft. This cabin does not currently share in the ranch's main water supply, but sits on a parcel which owns water rights from a nearby spring. The cabin has its own septic system, 500-gallon propane tank, and 2,500-gallon above- ground water storage tank.
6-stall horsebarn The 1,728 sq ft barn was built in 2005 with 6 interior/exterior stalls, including interior floor mats and exterior pipe-fenced pens. The barn was constructed of steel framing, tongue & groove wood siding, and concrete foundation. The barn is fully enclosed and has full power with shared water from the garage/workshop.
Garage/Workshop Built in the 1970s of solid log and rock construction, the garage/workshop building sits next to the barn, is 756 sq ft with a 16-ft high peaked ceiling. The garage includes a large, enclosed tool/storage room with storage loft above, and has full power with water plumbed to the outside of the building.
Power and Water The property is completely power- and water-independent ("off the grid"). There are 4 solar arrays, each with 6 SolarWorld SW280 panels that generate 1,680 watts for a total of 6,720 watts of power. The solar power system supplies electricity to every structure on the ranch (including the Kenny cabin) and is backed by a 15 Kw propane generator. A gravity-fed water system supplies water to the main house, guest house, and garage/workshop. A 35-ft deep independent well on the property supplies the water, which is pumped to a 2,500-gallon underground water storage tank.
