Property Description

  We are announcing the exclusive listing of the Domingo Ranch. The property is 3,320 acres of deeded land, 640 acres of NM State Lease acres, 800 acres of Bureau of Land Management grazing land, and 120 acres of free use land. The Domingo Ranch is a livestock, hunting, and recreational ranch. With over 4,880 total acres, this property offers a true New Mexico ranch lifestyle and the great location in Central New Mexico, just a bit over 1 hour’s drive from two of New Mexico’s largest cities, adds to the property's appeal.

  The ranch is in San Miguel and Guadalupe Counties, New Mexico, due east of Albuquerque and Southeast of Santa Fe. Mileage from Albuquerque is approximately 80 miles and mileage from Santa Fe is approximately 70 miles, which makes the Domingo Ranch both convenient, but reasonably remote. Road access is 95% paved with the balance being ranch dirt road.

Livestock Ranching

  The Domingo Ranch has historically been a cattle grazing unit. The stocking rate is approximately 10-12 cows per section depending on rainfall. The estimated annual carrying capacity would be 75 to 90 animal units, again depending on rainfall. The watering, fencing, and facilities infrastructure is fully functional and in fair condition. Water from the main water well is distributed to eight livestock drinking tanks and a water storage facility.

  The ranch is separated into 6 pastures and 1 trap.  Primary grasses are grama varieties, galleta, New Mexico feathergrass, and tobosa. There are some areas that have light to moderate cholla cactus and minor amounts of yucca.

  The ranch has been grazed in a proper stewardship manner over the years so there are no vegetative issues.

The Ranch House

  The current owners purchased the land in 2006, built an off-grid house and have lived there part-time. Currently, approximately 400 acres are reserved for their horses and the remainder is leased to a neighbor rancher who acts as caretaker in their absence. The house has 2 bedrooms (each with a queen bed and a loft with an additional twin bed), a kitchen, and a bathroom built within the original 100-year-old adobe walls. An additional framed great room adds dining, TV, and game areas. The total area is approximately 1,600 square feet. There are two portals of approximately 160 and 400 square feet. Solar power comes from 9 - 130-watt panels plus 6 -280-watt panels and 12 - 420-amp/hour batteries were replaced in 2019. There is a 6KW Generac backup propane generator.  Propane also runs the wall heaters, stove, and instant hot water heater. There is a 1,000-gallon underground propane tank.  A wood stove provides supplemental heat and atmosphere in the winter. Water is from a solar-powered well. There are satellite dishes for TV and internet. The furniture (except a dining table and small corner cabinet) and appliances will stay with the house. The house is not registered with the county and therefore has no official street address. The owners use a Post Office box in nearby Villanueva for mail.
