Unless you have very detailed directions, this ski lake subdivision is virtually hidden from public view. From the pictures, you’d never guess this well kept secret is in the state of Arizona. The peripheral barrier of lush trees disguises what lies within, and helps create glass like water conditions. However, those who have heard of the Lakeside Turn and Burn, or the Lu Lus Big Dog Open know exactly where 21 property owners enjoy almost limitless ski time on two side by side water ski lakes.
This lake community was developed in the early 1990’s and was organized where each property owner held a share in a landowner association. Property sales and transactions were typically made know by word of mouth to interested parties. Recent changes have facilitated the sale of individual lots or property. Currently, most of the subdivision is built out and enjoyed by many year round residents. This is the only ski lake in the valley that has a gas dock.
This waterfront ski lot is just under 1/2 acre, approximately 18,500 sq.ft and enjoys 185 feet of lake shoreline. Electricity and water are already at the property, and a septic tank has been installed. The boat dock, shown on the right, has plenty of storage, 12′ x 12′, and a lift for your ski boat. The upper deck provides a great vantage point to watch your family or they watch you enjoy the private ski lake. Water usage on the property or dwelling is included in the monthly HOA fee. No need to worry about a well. There is even an automatic watering system around the perimeter of the property.
Spring Mountain Ski Ranch requires homes of at least 2,000 sq.ft., while Santan Lakeside Estates requires homes no less than 3,000 sq.ft. Lakeside Village has a minimum requirement of 800 sq.f.t and no larger than 3,000 sq.ft. This makes it ideal for someone looking to construct a secondary or vacation home instead of a primary residence.
Other unique features
It is also worthwhile to mention that there is abundant ATV riding available in the area as well as a small private landing strip for planes and a hanger. Call me for more details.
