Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty presents a hidden gem and a very rare opportunity through the famed No Toro Ranch—a 78-acre estate nestled beneath Arizona’s majestic Mogollon Rim offering homeowners a rare blend of luxury and wilderness. Agents Frank Aazami and Nancy Read present 1804 Pyle Ranch Road in Payson, Ariz., for sale at $5.9 million. 

Just two hours from the bustling Valley, this expansive estate sprawls into the pristine Ponderosa Pine forest and is a testament to the glory of the Arizona wilderness. The variety of outdoor experiences spread across the property, from hiking trails to a roping and horseback riding arena, adds to the estate’s testament to the vision and legacy of its former owner, Rusty Lyon. 

Boasting an array of amenities that cater to adventure-seekers and comfort-lovers, this once-in-a-lifetime home is one you do not want to miss. No Toro Ranch has seven residential houses with unique charm and character. These homes contain 18 bedrooms, 15 baths and 14,989 square feet of living space combined. The seven homes are named the Main House, Gingerbread House, Mother-in-Law House, Manager’s House, Bunk House, Hill House and Trailer House. 

The stately two-story log cabin Main House, designed for entertaining, opens into a large family room and living space with a massive fireplace in the downstairs area. There is also a primary bedroom with a large bath, half bath, recreation room, formal dining area and a large kitchen. Upstairs is home to a secondary bedroom, bathroom, loft, grand deck and balcony. Attached to the Main House is a two-car garage with a workspace. 

The quaint two-story wooden frame Gingerbread House is home to intricate designs and cozy interiors. Inside the majestic home are two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a family room with a fireplace and an outdoor porch. The serene surroundings and updated amenities beckon visitors and owners alike to visit the Mother-in-Law house with its wood frame construction holding three bedrooms and two bathrooms, a two-car garage and an outdoor deck. 

The Manager’s House was built in 1970 and has two beds and two baths, a living room with a fireplace, a family room, an office, a loft and a formal dining area. This home is 2,736 square feet and contains a two-car garage, workshop area and a large covered porch. The Bunk House, built in 1986 with wood frames, the Hill House, a single-story home built in 1991, and the Trailer House, a single-wide manufactured home, all complete this western dream estate. 

Rusty Lyon, former owner of No Toro Ranch, is the founder of Westcor and developer of some of the most successful shopping malls in the Southwest. His father, Russ Lyon, started Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty over 77 years ago.
