Yuma Foothills Park Model and Lot, $95,000 or ** Trade

List price is $95,000. We are selling because work took us to Wisconsin a year ago and for the foreseeable future, so we are now building a home there. We purchased this lot as bare dirt and did all the work and landscaping ourselves, which has had a nice chance to mature. All landscaping is on drip irrigation and easy to maintain. All of the lot is either gravel or concrete; there is a very spaciously sized custom patio for entertaining which features a privacy wall & nearly new 3-tier concrete fountain. In addition there is a small stick built shed on slab and a portable storage shed/trailer which is highly insulated. The lot has a slab for RV parking (any size rig) and 50 amp full hookups. We have been able to rent this space every winter we have wanted for an income of $325/month. The park model has never been rented. Annual taxes run approximately $726. Note: the spa and sea container have been removed.
The park model is a Dutch Park 2007 model (unfurnished) with 10 foot interior ceiling height which really gives it a particular feeling of spaciousness as compared to many park models. There are clerestory windows throughout and two bay windows on the patio side, so light and views are abundant. We upgraded the counters to tile in the kitchen, the stove is a digital 36” GE Profile smooth top, and we added a quiet Maytag dishwasher. The spacious pantry closet has pull-out shelving and right next to that is an alcove with a hookup for a stack washer/dryer (not included).
The bedroom is complete with a high quality queen sized bed and built-in storage and closets. All cabinets are solid oak throughout. The bath has a built-in hamper and linen closet, a corner sink and a shower stall with a seat. The built-in entertainment center in the living room and buffet in the dining area provide convenient and ample additional storage. A highly efficient and low cost to run split system was recently installed (for AC and heating) which cut our electric bills by two-thirds.
The lot is approximately 7200 square feet and is surrounded by high quality stick built homes with the exception of one neighbor who has a well done manufactured home. This truly is one of the most upper end sections in the Foothills, and has proven over our years of ownership to be very safe and well maintained. It sits one long block from the edge of the desert and state and BLM land, which is available for recreation. For those who golf, it is midpoint between the two Foothills golf courses. We had the block walls all raised to six feet and with the addition of the privacy wall and a tall gate on the park model side, you will find extreme privacy. The neighbors are friendly and gregarious and the street, being a short spur road, is very quiet with little traffic.
**Please note we are very open to doing an “even Steven” trade of this property for a home of equal value in Central Wisconsin. We’re not interested in bare land or lots, but if you desire your place in the desert sun and have a home that would make a good investment property for us in Wisconsin, we’re all ears. (Trade property must be free and clear of any liens or mortgages with no major HOA fees). You can contact me at itchyhitchatyahoodotcom. We have a current tenant who is willing to vacate so quick possession is available this season if you are in the area. We are motivated sellers and look forward to your inquiries. Thanks!
