The Double D Ranch is a large 1,835 acre ranch located less than 15 miles from beautiful Taos, New Mexico. As you enter through the grand adobe gate, you'll be welcomed with spectacular views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

Hi, I'm Pavel Lukes, Broker/ Owner representing the sale of the Double D Ranch. Growing up in communist Czechoslovakia, I loved reading about the American West, cowboys & Indians. Coming to the Double D Ranch, personifies the images from my childhood. When I visit the ranch, I can easily visualize this ranch and big sky country in the days of Kit Carson, fur trappers and the Indians who once held the land. Having singlehandedly sold a couple other Taos area ranches, it gives me a unique perspective and appreciation for Double D Ranch and its attributes. The seller has greatly reduced the price of this ranch making it one of the best values in the Southwest.
