            SCOTTSDALE, Arizona (March 10, 2008) -- Amidst the majestic Apache Sitgraves National Forest and the crisp, clean air of the tall Ponderosa pines in Arizona’s northern country, a horse lover’s community jewel has begun to take shape. Punctuating the Pinetop-Lakeside landscape with panoramic vistas of the White Mountains and unparalleled homeowner properties, Bear Tooth Ranch is soon to become one of the country’s most sought-after equestrian communities.

            Developer William L. Hawkins, who will also make his home at Bear Tooth Ranch, is working alongside a world-renowned team of experts. Design Workshop, CCY Architects and Pacific Aquascape will masterfully craft 15 estate lots on 40 heavily-wooded acres. Environmentally-designed lakes will complement serene mountain living at its finest. Bear Tooth Ranch will be the perfect escape from city life, stunning in its natural beauty and gifted with amenities unmatched anywhere in the country. “Home-owners will enjoy the many activities available at Bear Tooth Ranch in a resort-like setting while introducing owners and their guests to the Old West with a refreshingly elegant flair,” said Hawkins. “While preserving as much of the land’s natural beauty as possible and substantially adding to it with lakes and other amenities, we will create an environment that will quickly become an outdoorsman’s sanctuary, a first-class way of Western Life.”

            Located just 15 minutes from the quaint downtowns of Pinetop and Lakeside, Bear Tooth Ranch will be situated among the largest collection of Ponderosa Pines in the world. With unmatched scenic beauty in a classic four season environment, Bear Tooth Ranch will offer year-round seasonal activities in a refined ranch setting. At nearly 7,200 feet in elevation, Ranch residents will be able to take

advantage of  endless opportunities to fish, ski, golf, snowmobile and hike on and around the nearby slopes of the highly sought-after White Mountain communities and their associated amenities. Bear Tooth Ranch is certain to become a close knit community for the 15 families who enjoy and appreciate a Western way of life in a magnificent setting.

            Bear Tooth Ranch is not only unique in its surroundings, climate, design and architecture, but homeowners will own and enjoy unparalleled community amenities. A completely-covered 150’ x 300’ Arena provides not only state-of-the-art equestrian facilities and a fully-functioning business center, but also an owner’s lounge, the Grizzly Bar & Grill.  

            Neighboring the Ranch’s largest lake will be the Miles City Club, a 4.400 square foot two-story Clubhouse that will include distinctive room suites reminiscent of plush accomodations often found at major resorts throughout the United States and offer stunning waterside vistas. The equestrian complex will also provide homeowners with two architecturally-designed barns for their horses. Overlooking Painted Pony Lake, the Driftwood Barn will provide residents and guests an additional 1,000 square foot suite, the Huffman Suite, named after renowned Western photographer and turn-of-the-century rancher, L.A. Huffman.

            In order to protect the homeowner’s investments in Bear Tooth Ranch now and for the future, considerable time is being committed to developing Conditions, Covenants and Restrictions as well as Design Guidelines in keeping with the expectations and requirements of families desiring a first-rate community. “I am committed to make this extraordinary property a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for families who appreciate this way of life.  We are confident that Bear Tooth Ranch will meet and surpass everyone’s expectations,” said Hawkins.
