23 Hectares of Gorgeous Mountain & Riverfront Land
Located 30 minutes from Malacatos near the small rural community of Chiquil is this gorgeous 23-hectare (56-acre) property with both flat riverfront and mountainous land! The area is beautiful and extremely peaceful, so it’s a perfect rural homestead, especially for this price.
The riverfront land is completely flat and consists of about 4 hectares, while the mountainous land consists of about 19 hectares. Even though the upper part of this property is on a mountain, this doesn’t mean it isn’t usable! There are three flat areas on this upper section where you could build homes or subdivide and resell to make back your investment. You can also create a variety of hiking trails around the mountainside to reach different viewpoints and really take advantage of all this land has to offer.
This property even has a rustic open-concept house on the riverfront part of the land! This house is made of adobe and wood, has a large open kitchen and living area, a bedroom, and a bathroom. You could move right in or live here while you build a custom house. While the house is already hooked up to potable water, it still needs to be connected to electricity.
All round the home there are mature fruit trees which attract the lovely birds of the area, so you can enjoy birdsongs every day from your home! Not only will you hear the birds, but you can hear the rushing of the river as well. These elements provide a very calming atmosphere. From the home there are beautiful views of the mountains and valley.
On the lower section by the river, there is irrigation canal water flowing for watering the trees and other plants. The soil here is very fertile for cultivating a variety of plants. There are also trees you can use as hardwood for building and other medicinal plants. Existing trees and plants include: mangos, avocados, bananas, guavas, plums, and passion fruits.
In this area of Chiquil there are cool waterfalls that you can visit and explore as well!
