5 Hectares of Lush Farm Land with a Humble Home, Productive Crops and Private Riverfront Access
This wonderfully lush 5-hectare (12.4-acre) rural riverfront property has plenty of space for farming endeavors, fruit orchards, or building additional houses.
There are many flat areas that would be perfect for future homesites. You could create your own community or family compound here.
This land is very fertile and green which is great for the fruit trees and sugar cane on the property. Existing fruit trees include: guava, oranges, mandarins, sweet lemons, and bananas. Other fruits and vegetables would thrive here. To use the space to the maximum, one could terrace the sloping terrain to make terraced vegetable gardens.
Additionally, there are a lot of grassy areas which are optimal for pastureland for horses, cows, goats, or other animals.
There is a small house on this property so you could move right in. However, it is a traditional rural Ecuadorian home so it is quite humble but still very livable. It already has water and electrical hooked up which is super convenient for future projects.
From different parts of the property, you can hear the rushing water of the bordering river. At this majestic river you have your own private swimming hole.
The nearby forests and prospering trees on this property attract all kinds of exotic Amazonian birds like parrots. Enjoy their melodies and views of the vibrant surrounding mountains right from your patio.
It is just 5 minutes away from the little town of Valladolid, yet it feels like it is farther out in the country. The road from Loja to Valladolid is fully paved (the Pan American Highway). This makes trips to Vilcabamba and Loja for staple goods and economical building supplies easier.
There is no dry season in Valladolid so it maintains its green vibrancy year-round. It is a pleasant climate for being in the orient as it is not too hot or too cold, just slightly humid which is conducive for growing all sorts of crops year-round. Valladolid is one of the closest tropical oases to Loja as the surrounding forests connect to national parks (like Podocarpus) and the Amazon forest.
