About Utah


Utah (from the Ute for, “people of the mountains), located in western United States, is one of the most geographically endowed states in the nation. The Rocky Mountains, with their jagged, snowy peaks, run through the northeast corner of the state. The Basin and Ridge Region extends over western Utah, famous for the Bonneville Salt Flats. South and eastern Utah is distinguished by the Colorado Plateau, high country marked by striking canyons and deep valleys. Southeastern Utah is known as Four Corners, neatly touching the borders of Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado. The State of Utah is closely associated with the Mormon religion.

Mormons cultivated lands with irrigation when they first arrived in the mid-19 th century, but very little acreage in Utah is devoted to farming. Mineral exploitation spurred economic growth in the region, chief among them the mining of copper.

WWII brought industrial growth and military installations to the state, and more recently the manufacture of spacecraft, computer hardware, software and electronics have contributed to a dynamic economy. Coupled with a healthy tourism trade and petroleum production, Utah is living up to its state nickname of ,“Industry."

Harmony Mountain Ranch - -

Cedar City, Iron County, Utah

Harmony Mountain Ranch (HMR) truly represents the perfect getaway spot – far enough from civilization to relax completely, but close enough to metropolitan amenities and transportation to be convenient. Nestled on the west side of Harmony Mountain Range across from the small community of Kanarraville, the property is accessed via two Interstate 15 exits, both feeding to HMR from the East over County-maintained roads. This is ideal; freeway access but not direct access, keeping the area private. The property is 40 miles north of St. George (Washington County) and 8 miles south of Cedar City (Iron County). The combined population of the two counties is over 150,000, making quality restaurants, shopping, medical care, and entertainment only minutes away. Harmony Mountain Ranch lies about two hours north of Las Vegas and four hours south of the Salt Lake metroplex along Interstate 15. This brings major airports and world-class amenities within short reach of Harmony Mountain as well. Las Vegas offers some of the most frequent and affordable flights in the world, giving prospective purchasers and eventual residents easy air access to the area. A winter sports paradise awaits around Salt Lake City, and even the beaches of Southern California are only a half-day’s drive. Examining the location shows that it is geocentric to the Western United States. Interstates and Highways give 10-hour drive access to a population base of nearly 50 million people. Encompassing over three square miles (2006 acres based on a recent survey) Harmony Mountain Ranch is a unique undertaking designed to capitalize on site attributes, turning mountainside locations into a multitude of beautiful homesites, each with its own unique charm. The site is roughly rectangular in shape and is located on the east face of the Harmony Mountain Range (Stoddard Mountain), providing panoramic views of the Kolob area of Zion National Park to the southeast, the Kanarraville Valley and Hurricane Cliffs to the east, and the Cedar Valley and Tushar Mountains to the northeast (Sunsets are truly remarkable). Elevation runs from 5,700 to 6,400 feet, and the site is bordered by Federal (BLM) land. Having BLM land adjacent to HMR means that there is direct access to pristine wilderness areas that will never be developed, thereby giving future residents a much larger “backyard.” Access is via a chip-seal paved road (maintained by Iron County) running west from Kanarraville over Interstate 15 and to the Property on the East boundary then up and through the Ranch. Kanarraville is serviced by two exits from I-15, and gives Harmony Mountain Ranch easy but not direct access. This is highly advantageous; the site has County-maintained access off a major Interstate, but is unlikely to have extraneous traffic, helping to maintain the exclusivity and privacy of the project. Improvements: The following is the concept for development of the Harmony Mountain Ranch project; lots will also be subject to CC&R’s, please confirm specifics with Developer prior to purchase. The development concept of Harmony Mountain Ranch is to create an upscale ranch-style mountain community offering a highly picturesque and private location with convenient access, full services, and proximity to a wide array of amenities. The property consists of approximately 2006 acres that has been approved for 96 20+/- acre lots. The HMR layout is truly remarkable; every lot has at least one view corridor and many have several. Vista selections include the 70+ mile Cedar Valley views from cozy hollows to dramatic sunset views of the Hurricane and Kolob cliffs from ridges and mountainsides. There are mapped lots with a more level topography and fewer trees, ideal for open yard space, small pastures or horse arenas, and selections that track up steep inclines to a promontory where a showpiece house could be built. Interior streets will provide access to all lots. Architectural controls will provide for all lot entrances to be consistent with the overall design of the development. This will create a sense of community and help maintain the feeling of a ranch lifestyle. Primary roads will be county-maintained and picturesque, with riding trails running along the side. Emphasis will be placed on maintaining as much of the original landscape as possible, with CC&R’s requiring careful lot excavation and construction, as well as large setbacks. The Project’s excellent services will be carefully blended for maximum preservation of the natural beauty and rustic charm of the site while providing great investment protection. On-site amenities includes a common water system providing high-quality water to each lot at good pressure. Residents are required to install a fire protection hydrant on each site. The system includes a very high capacity tank or tanks located on the southwest portion of the property. Power, phone, gas, and high-speed data cable are also provided. Sewer will be handled by individual septic systems provided by lot owners. Harmony Mountain Ranch is home to a quality equestrian facility, including stables, indoor riding arena, outdoor riding areas and trails throughout, and access to thousands of square miles of BLM land to explore. The equestrian club membership will be available to all owners as well as a select number of non-residents. This will allow the club to operate year-round and potentially offer more services such as lessons, trail rides, boarding, grooming, and veterinary service. Additionally, a family recreation area is available, to allow for reunions, picnics and hosted events. Truly, Harmony Mountain Ranch represents a state-of-the-art home location by combining a thoughtful ranch setting in one of the Country’s best outdoor areas with an unparalleled amenity package. Community Guidelines: Harmony Mountain Ranch has appropriate restrictions to assure a high quality atmosphere while allowing each individual owner the feeling of an exclusive mountain retreat. The following represent primary guidelines that are incorporated into the community CC&R’s. 2,400 square feet minimum living (HVAC) floor space (excludes basements, porches, and garages). Entrance gates and on-premise fencing must be rustic in nature and blend with surroundings, subject to architectural review and approval in accordance with established criteria. Perimeter fencing setbacks will apply and barbed wire is prohibited. Residence and ancillary buildings (barns, etc.) are subject to architectural guidelines and restrictions, including height limits and rustic blending requirements. Animals limited in number as to horses and domestic pets. Vehicle parking restrictions will apply. Restrictions on removal of trees and non-disturbance of setback areas. Agricultural activities prohibited other than personal consumption gardens, which cannot be in setback areas. Hunting prohibited. All utilities must be underground. Lighting restrictions applicable. Entrance driveways within a prescribed setback must be in accordance with architectural guidelines. Other restrictive provisions as found in similar projects and not listed here are also incorporated. Please obtain a copy prior to executing a contract. A copy of the full CC&R’s will be provided to purchasers at the time of contracting.
