TAOS LAND FOR SALE, ABUNDANT VIEWS & MANY CHOICES…
While the valley is indeed expansive just 38% of the land in Taos County is privately owned. We have a large selection of available land for sale in the Taos area.
Land in the Taos Valley can be generally grouped into four main types:
Valley Land - These are the old parts of town and they typically hug the mountains to the north and east or hug the creeks and rivers . Land here is lush with meadows and stands of cottonwoods and lots of willow. In the spring there are huge fields of wild iris; in the fall its sunflowers and asters.
High Desert Sage - This is the land that forms the board alluvial plains away from the creeks and rivers. It is most plentiful to the west and the south as you leave the mountains. It is characterized by dry creeks (or arroyos) small plateaus (or mesas) and very few trees to obstruct the long vistas and gorgeous sunsets that Taos is known for.
Mountain Land - This is land that occupies the higher elevations to the east and north. To the east in the Sangre de Cristo foothills it is characterized by pinon-juniper and rolling hills striated with dry creeks (or arroyos). To the north and around the Ski Valley it is lush with willow, mountain cottonwood and aspen. Some parts will require four wheel drive come winter.
Land In Town - Land in town tends to be small parcels snugly situated between existing development. Taos Town has zoning laws that govern both type of development and density of development. In town land is typically serviced by town services, water, sewer, trash removal and thus can accommodate denser development than land in the county.
