Hi. My name is Peter Durkson with Fidelity Real estate in St. George, Utah.
I recently listed the Page ranch in Southern Iron County in Southern Utah.
Just off the Old Spanish Trail, the Page Ranch was originally settled in 1858 by a group sent to Southern
Utah by Brigham Young in 1854.
This property will appeal to any nature loving family who’d like to live on and preserve a secluded 1400
acre parcel of land completely surrounded by the Dixie Natural Forest. This property will appreciate in
value in coming years.
Conveniently located, St George is just 46 miles to the southwest and Cedar City is 23 miles to the
northeast. The ranch sits on mostly flat grazing land with some stands of trees, diverse streams and a
few higher home building sites.
The Page Ranch House was home for the Page family for 34 years. During that time the house also
served as a hotel for travelers and as a boarding house for men working in the nearby iron ore mines.
Because of this history, the house was placed on the National register of Historic Places on May 9, 1985.
Today, this beautiful example of frontier architecture is still standing, but remains unoccupied.
There is ample water for culinary use, small organic farming and livestock. The spring fed pond remains
full to the brim even in the fall of a drought year
The property comes with 74 water shares. This comes from above ground water sources, including
streams and springs. If necessary, underground water shares could be purchased.
This property would be ideal to build a large rustic lodge and a smaller caretaker’s home with an
attached barn for equipment, horses, and poultry.
Portions of the land could be leased for grazing, organic farming and /or horse and animal rescue.
This property could also be developed as a corporate retreat for the families of an eco-friendly
With proper tax planning, donating the land to a conservation easement could enable a buyer to deduct
all or part of the price of the land from their tax liability.
It’s also an altruistic thing to do because the property would be preserved in perpetuity while
protecting the environment.
The right buyer with vision and commitment will enjoy this historic peaceful quiet retreat and the many
shared family experiences it offers while the property continues to appreciate in years to come.
