700-acre Prescott ranch will become Stringfield at Granite Mountain community
Stringfield at Granite Mountain, the newest development of custom homes coming to Prescott, Arizona, is officially under construction as the first of five phases roll out for the custom master plan community. Stringfield Development Company, led by long-time real estate developers Jeff Davis and Jeff Raymond, purchased the Stringfield family’s 700-acre historic ranch to develop it into a picturesque community with large lots and sweeping views of the Prescott National Forest.
“As a Prescott resident myself, I’ve known the Stringfield family – who have been ranching in this area of Yavapai County since the 1870’s – for quite some time,” said Managing Partner Jeff Davis, of Stringfield Development Company. “After going over our ideas with Irene [Stringfield], we knew we could create something really special that would leave a lasting legacy for their family.”
Five years in the making, after securing city water and three miles of sewer to the site, Stringfield at Granite Mountain has now broken ground on its first phase of construction that will include 65 lots, ranging from 1-3 acres in size each, with prices starting from $250,000. A quick hour-and-a-half drive from metropolitan Phoenix, the gated community, which sits at 5,400 feet above sea level, boasts open spaces, fenced lots, hiking and biking trails, endless views of the neighboring mountain scapes and connections to the City of Prescott’s 56-mile “Circle Trail” (the last mile of which is located in the Stringfield development).
“This community is going to be ideal for not only current residents of northern Arizona who may want to relocate to Prescott, but also for families looking for a second home with cooler temperatures, snow days and green pastures as opposed to desert terrain,” said Jeff Raymond, Partner at Stringfield at Granite Mountain. “The larger lot sizes also offer enough space for highly customizable compounds, which could include envelopes for toy shop garages and other unique features.”
Located just 10 minutes from downtown Prescott, with golf and equestrian facilities nearby, Stringfield at Granite Mountain provides the expansiveness of the open range that drew the Stringfield family to the area initially, while also being close enough to local shops, restaurants and entertainment.
“It took me a long time to get used to the idea of the property growing houses instead of cows, but life has a way of changing things,” said Irene Stringfield. “I have confidence in Jeff Davis and his team to develop something that reflects the hard work, sweat and tears that my family put into this area; to create a community of custom homes that reflect the pioneering minds that settled the area in the 1800's, before there were rules and regulations that restricted ideas and planning.”
There are12 lots currently available for purchase. Davis expects to sell out of this phase by year’s end.
