If you've been following my posts on Bullhead City, AZ riverfront homes, we started at the north end of Bullhead City near the Laughlin Bridge . . . worked our way down river, then followed the lazy River around the bend . . . and now, we head South to Mohave Valley, AZ Riverfront Homes on the beautiful Colorado River.
From the southernmost part of Bullhead City to Mohave Valley at the Arizona/California border, the Fort Mohave Indian Tribe owns most of the waterfront land, so you won't see any riverfront homes in Fort Mohave, AZ.
But if you head just a few miles South, you'll find the most amazing riverfront homes in Mohave Valley, AZ, 86440 that you've seen anywhere in Mohave County.
Most of these fabulous luxury homes on the Colorado River are located on Dike Road, on half acre to acre sites, with the white sandy beaches our area Mohave County waterfront home buyers most desire. These are the homes you will be drawn to if you want to pull your boat in and out of the water often. Most of the other waterfront subdivisions will require that you launch from a public or community launch and then dock at your own dock. Not here! You will be able to walk out into your back yard and stick your toes into the sand, lounge with a sippy cup on your own private beach. This is life on the Colorado River at its very finest.
Dike Road has three sections:
- The North part, off Courtwright Street where the homes are palatial and on large (many acre+ lots), most with private wells.
- On the West side of Harbor, and just north of the Needles Bridge over the Colorado River (the last right turn before the River if heading toward California), many of the lots are split in half by Dike Road. Some of the land owners split the lots and sold them; others built their supersized garages on them and their gorgeous custom homes on the waterfront side. That's why you'll see some garages seemingly situated 'solo'.
There are both site built and manufactured homes, and private wells and city sewer are typical in this area. The zoning is mostly RE Recreational and allows for guest quarters with County permits and approval.
- On the East side of Harbor, there is a gated community called The Colony, where the properties are elevated above the River by rocky bluffs, and the homes almost all have their own docks below. These homes sit across from the Needles Municipal Golf Course and Jack Smith Park.
Spring and Summer, expect prices to rise as is customary during this 'on' season for watersports enthusiasts and Colorado River vacation home buyers.
The Colorado River has something for just about everyone, but these are the very best of Bullhead City and Mohave Valley, AZ.
