Kingman Premier Properties

Available: 1,818* acres in Arizona, between Mesquite and St. George - with Interstate 15 running right through it and dedicated water rights that do not rely on the Colorado River System

Since the Las Vegas Valley growth has been restricted by BLM land and Mountains, value has increased beyond the ability of many projects to be profitable. Our site provides affordability and vision.

Access and Acreage is key to all projects. The Beaver Dam Ranch Planned Community allows a Developer the luxury to create their master-plan with the I-15 Freeway cutting directly thru the project. The site, nearly 2,000 acres, is available at a price not seen for decades in Las Vegas. The entire project could be built with supporting services along the freeway to create a destination, not just another housing tract.

The location is between Mesquite and St. George, which have Hospitals, Wal-Mart, Costco, Home Depot, Restaurants and more. Mesquite is a short 10 minute drive, while St. George is 30 minutes away, factors that add to the project appeal for future buyers.
