El Escape Ranch is the perfect retreat for outdoor adventurers seeking a low-maintenance, high fenced ranch that provides respite from hectic city life without sacrificing the essentials and creature comforts. Approximately, 2.8 miles of recently installed game-proof fencing encompassing approximately 187 acres offers sufficient habitat and protection for both native and introduced exotic game species.  Noteworthy non-native species witnessed on the property include: red stag, axis deer, fallow and blackbuck antelope.  A newly completed +/-1200 square foot residence provides a low maintenance, sustainable means of quiet living or comfortably entertaining guests.  Built in the mindset of off-grid living the home features a rainwater catchment (cistern) system of approximately 2400-gallon capacity with filtration pump for washing, showers and household uses. The property also includes approximately 28 acres of low-fence land featuring 180-degree views encompassing Metcalf Gap and the surrounding terrain. A pad has already been leveled on this hillside creating a secondary homesite option with views of the entire ranch below. Several stock tanks dot the landscape providing sufficient water to resident wildlife and migrating passersby.  Four hunting blinds with protein and spin cast feeders are smartly positioned throughout the property for maximum utility and effectiveness.
