20 Hectares of Prime Land Located Close to Vilcabamba
Located in the quaint, sparsely populated, agricultural village of Tumianuma, the property sits a few hundred meters off of a road that is currently being paved and will offer easy direct paved access to Vilcabamba in the coming months.
Under 20 minutes drive to Vilcabamba, but off the beaten path, this 20+ hectare gem (49 acre) offers lots of flat areas and some gently rolling slopes, making nearly the entire property usable, a rare occurrence in the region.
With a large, mature and healthy organic huerta (orchard) already in place featuring coffee and a wide variety of fruit trees including banana, cacao, various citrus, guava and much more, this land is perfect for someone looking for a sustainable, self sufficient lifestyle or to get into larger scale agriculture.
There is an underground irrigation system installed throughout the property fed by pure canal water.
With a newly built greenhouse and bodega (storage shed) on site and electricity as well as fiber optic internet already installed, the infrastructure here is nearly complete..
Boasting two access points, one at the lower (foot) of the property and the other via the canal road at the top, this farm has great access despite its semi-remote location.
Approximately 16 hectares (40 acres) sit below the canal and represent the main part of the land, with an additional 4 (10 acres) above the canal nestled against a unique sheer rock face.
The village of Tumianuma, just a one minute drive from the land, is a traditional Andean village with only a few hundred residents who live peacefully and largely work in micro agriculture.
There is a lovely river just a few minutes drive from the property with great spots to take a refreshing dip, fish or just enjoy a riverside picnic.
The weather here is ideal, with daytime highs in the 70’s and low 80’s year round and cooler nights in the 60’s.
The property is currently being subdivided into 10 parcells which gives great optionality to build your ideal community, sell off some pieces to recoup some of your investment or to sell the whole thing for a substantial return.
