SOUTH MILL RANCH is 1,224 +/- deeded acres of sensational dramatic beauty which boasts of an absolutely magnificent main house, two very attractive guest houses and a stable complex with a conference room, office, hay barn, corrals, pens, picnic ramada, shop, windmill & helipad. The ranch is perfect for a private family or corporate retreat. It is also ideal for a small cow-calf operation. South Mill Ranch borders 1,009 acres of open space to the west on the San Cayatano Mountains & approximately 10,000 acres of preserve land on the Sonoita Creek State Natural Area & Patagonia Lake State Park to the south and southeast. The mountain views of the Santa Rita's, San Cayetano's & the Grosvenor Hills are astounding in all directions. The climate is excellent year round at 4,100 feet elevation.

All of the very tasteful furniture less some personal items convey. South Mill is located on the southern part of Morning Star Ranch. That consists of 36 acre homesites with numerous custom high-end homes already built. South Mill Ranch is being offered for sale by the developer of Morning Star Ranch. He has assembled the southern 34 parcels (1,224 +/- acres) together with the impeccable improvements he has constructed for his own use as a separate ranch. Subject to the buyers wishes, the seller intends to sever the 1,224 +/- acres from the development while retaining utility and access easements along paved roads across the development in return for agreeing to share in the road maintenance. This would create a simple and effective break that would leave the buyer with a very private but easily accessible stand-alone ranch. The buyer of South Mill can later sell parcels off if desired or leave it as a ranch. It should also be noted that, because of the successful nature of Morning Star Ranch, the donation or sale of a conservation easement giving up development rights could have a significant financial benefit to the new owner of this ranch. The sheer beauty and diversity of the land, the breathtaking vistas, the incredibly impressive amenities and the complete privacy are almost overwhelming at the South Mill Ranch.
