27-Hectare Mountain Property with Incredible Views
This peaceful 27-hectare (66.7-acre) property consists of a piece of mountain with some flatter areas for building a home that have marvelous views. It is located far up the valley from the rural town of Masanamaca (so about 30 minutes total from Vilcabamba).
This area is immensely peaceful and secluded, making this a great option for those who want to live “out there” separated from civilization. It boasts clean air, clean water, and serene nature.
Towards the upper part of the property are the best flat spots for building. At these higher parts of the property the views are incredible. You are looking at practically untouched mountains and valleys. To one side are the Podocarpus National Park mountains and to the other side the valley opens up to display endless mountains. There is a rough road to access the upper part of the property.
A wonderful part of this property is that there is spring water all year round. Additionally, a stream runs through the property in a gulley to the side. At the bottom of the property there is a pristine river that originates in the Podocarpus National Park mountains. Bordering the property is a small waterfall that you can enjoy as well.
On the steeper sections of the property, you could raise cattle or other animals. You could also plant fruit trees to create an orchard.
There is a small old adobe house existing on this property. You could start living a humble life there, or use it as a shed as you build your home.
