THE DOUBLE D RANCH
Truly one of a kind, the Double D Ranch is a very special opportunity. With convenient year round access via a paved state highway, it borders the newly designated National Monument lands and is a short 12 miles to the town of Taos, New Mexico. Skiing is only 24 miles from the ranch to Taos Ski Valley and the newly expanded Taos Airport is just 6 miles down the highway.
Consisting of 1835 acres with three deep wells for domestic and agricultural use, the Double D offers a complete package to a buyer; from horse facilities to excellent hunting to river rafting and fishing a mile or two away to world class skiing to potential ranching with ample pasture for cattle.
The main hacienda comprises 5277 sq.ft. and is custom built with brick, slate, and natural wood floors and tile/natural rock accent walls throughout. There are four wood burning fireplaces, with the huge one in the living/dining/kitchen area being the highlight. 10 foot hand carved entry doors frame the front of the house and open into a stunning hallway with skylight and powder room.
The gourmet kitchen adjoining the living/dining areas features a sub Zero refrigerator/freezer, 6 burner Russell gas range with double self cleaning overs, granite and butcher block counter tops, a Franke double sink with Insta hot water and professional faucet, with an 8" x 12' pantry for all the storage you need!
Huge windows throughout the living/dining area feature incredible views in all directions of the snow capped mountains and prairies.
Off that area, there are patios with a kiva fireplace.
The large master bedroom with sitting area features separate closets for him and her, along with a make up area and corner kiva fireplace. The bath sports a 10 foot natural rock open shower, separate jetted spa tub, two separate sinks and private enclosed water closet. An intimate enclosed back porch opens onto a sunset view deck, too.
In addition, there are three additional unique bedrooms, each with ensuite full baths and private patios.
In front of the main residence, there is a large duck and koi pond with lots of landscaping, along with a small orchard and 40' x 30' planting garden with drip watering system. There are several separate fenced areas around the home which allow for pet security and separated holding pastures for horses, goats, etc.
